CHARLESTON, SC, September 06, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- When a patient loses a tooth it can be discouraging and cause him or her to hide their smile. With advancements in dentistry, patients no longer need to hide their smiles when teeth are missing. At James Island Family Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, Dr. Robert Beall offers dental implants in 29412 to restore patients' smiles when teeth are missing.
"I understand that it can be very discouraging for patients when they lose a tooth or multiple teeth. However, I want my patients to understand that there are options available to successfully restore their smiles without temporary treatments. Dental implants allow for a permanent replacement when teeth are missing," said Dr. Robert Beall about patients in 29412 and dental implants.
Dr. Robert Beall explains that the ideal candidate for dental implants is in good general and oral health. In order to determine if a patient is a candidate for dental implants, patients should seek the advice of Dr. Beall, a 29412 family dentist, who is trained in implant dentistry. To determine if dental implants are the best solution to restoring a person's smile, Dr. Beall will thoroughly examine the teeth and gums, while also evaluating bone density and quantity. This process may involve x-rays and computer tomography scans (CT scans) to ensure there is sufficient bone structure for placing the implant, and to determine exactly where the implant should be placed.
Based on the condition of a patient's oral tissues, oral hygiene, personal habits, and commitment to follow aftercare instructions, Dr. Beall will advise each patient of the most appropriate dental implant treatment plan. Additionally, if you are a smoker, your dentist will most likely advise you to quit smoking before undergoing implant placement because smokers tend to face a higher risk of implant failure.
"Recovery time after an implant procedure will depend on a number of factors, including how many procedures are required to complete treatment," stated Dr. Beall. "Once an implant has been placed, it is also important to maintain diligent oral hygiene habits to ensure proper fusing of the implant and bone structure. If an implant is properly cared for, it could potentially last for more than 40 years."
Immediately after a patient's implant procedure, it is important to stick to a diet that is restricted to soft foods. If stitches are present, they may need to be removed by Dr. Beall, a sedation dentist in 29412. However, self-dissolving stitches that do not require removal are typically used to improve recovery time. Failure to brush and floss the teeth is a leading cause of implant failure. Infection can also occur if the implant and surrounding areas are not properly cleaned.
Patients should talk to Dr. Robert Beall, a 29412 cosmetic dentist, for more information on dental implants and how to properly care for their teeth after their procedure is completed. Dental implants are an appropriate solution for replacing missing teeth, providing esthetic, tooth saving benefits.
