Start 2020 With A Whole Smile

November is here! Which means 2019 is coming to a close. Before the year ends and you lose your hard-earned 2019 dental insurance benefits, we suggest scheduling a visit. Your Albuquerque, NM, dentist can help correct minor tooth loss or even help those with advanced tooth loss, providing a strong and natural-looking dental implant!

Using Your Benefits and Addressing Tooth Loss

When we lose our teeth, the results could include an unsightly gap in our smiles, as well as difficulties eating and speaking clearly. Over time, we could also lose jawbone density and mass, as the body stops sending doses of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone around the missing tooth, causing the bone tissue to break down and leading to an aged appearance. In order to address these concerns, you need to seek a tooth replacement. By calling now, we can look at your dental insurance benefits and help you better understand them. We can even file for you! You can begin treatment now to use your 2019 benefits, and resume care in 2020 once your new ones become available. For many, the option to greet 2020 with a full smile is very possible!

The Placement Process

To begin, we will carefully plan the placement area and then insert a dental implant during a surgical procedure. A dental implant is created from titanium, a biocompatible material, which allows it to bond with the jawbone like a natural tooth. This stimulates the growth of jawbone tissue and prevents loss of mass and density. The healing period takes about three to our moths. Afterward, we address the visible portion of your new tooth or teeth.

Ensuring a Natural Appearance

If you have a single dental implant, then our team will attach an abutment to hold a custom-made dental crown in place. The crown will look natural and be able to withstand serious bite forces and pressures. If you have lost several teeth, then multiple dental implants could be used to secure a bridge or even a fixed denture. The prosthetic will last much longer than traditional versions, and help you enjoy tooth replacement that never sips during meals or speech! If you have any questions about addressing your tooth loss, then contact our team today to schedule an appointment! We would love to help you enjoy a full and functional smile once more.
