We love few things more than apples here in Washington. As the harvest continues to roll in, we are sure that you are attending festivals and parties laden with apples of all sorts. Our favorite is the candy apple. However, there are some things that will keep you far from the sweet crunchy goodness that is a candy apple. One of those things is a missing tooth. Luckily, there is a solution that will allow you to enjoy all of your favorite foods!
A missing tooth makes it almost impossible to enjoy the foods you love. The space causes pain and discomfort while you try to chew, and you don’t have the same bite force that you had with all of your teeth. You might look into restorations like bridges or partial dentures, but these solutions will not give you back the function of your natural tooth. To really restore your tooth, you need something that is secured in your actual jaw bone.
A Dental Implant for Full Restoration
If you want to be able to enjoy all foods, you need a restoration that is completely secure and stable. A dental implant is secured in the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Through this process, the titanium post fuses with the bone, creating a lasting solution for your missing tooth. The restoration is so secure, in fact, that you can enjoy that candy apple with little thought of your dental work!
Before you head out to the many festivals, be sure you will be able to enjoy all of the treats and foods available. Contact us today to find out more about how a dental implant can make a huge difference in your smile.
