LAKE OSWEGO, OR, March 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Losing teeth not only affects a person's ability to chew and properly digest food, but it also has serious social, psychological and emotional consequences that negatively affect quality of life. In addition to social embarrassment, some other problems associated with tooth loss include: mental anxiety, self-consciousness, speech problems and problems with relaxation.
Luckily, dental implants offer Lake Oswego residents a chance to replace their missing teeth so that they can avoid many of these problems. By visiting Dr. Colin Smith at Lake Oswego Smiles, patients can keep smiling even after the loss of a tooth. Dental implants are becoming the clear choice over other tooth restoring dental procedures, but not everyone is a candidate. Patients should schedule an appointment with Dr. Smith at Lake Oswego Smiles to see if dental implants are the right solution for them.
"Many people assume that tooth loss is an inevitable part of aging, but it is not the only reason. Most factors that contribute to tooth loss can be controlled earlier in life," said Lake Oswego, OR dentist, Dr. Colin Smith. "Educating yourself about the causes and consequences of tooth loss can help you prevent it from happening to you. Proper oral hygiene and visiting Lake Oswego Smiles at least twice a year for regular checkups and cleanings is another important step in preventing tooth loss."
To determine if dental implants are an appropriate solution for Lake Oswego residents when tooth loss occurs, a consultation with Dr. Colin Smith at Lake Oswego Smiles is needed. During the consultation, Dr. Smith will thoroughly examine the patient's teeth and gums to evaluate bone density and quantity. Based on the condition of the oral tissues, oral hygiene and personal habits, and the patient's commitment to properly follow aftercare instructions, Dr. Colin Smith will advise each patient of an appropriate treatment plan for replacing missing teeth. Some patients with insufficient bone or gum tissue may require bone or soft tissue grafts.
