We often see patients who have experienced tooth loss or may have poor oral health, and the only solution is a tooth extraction. No matter if you have experienced tooth loss due to decay, gum disease, a medical condition, injury, or trauma, it can be upsetting. Some patients want to discuss their tooth replacement options as soon as possible, while others need some time to process. While we are always sympathetic to our patients’ feelings, we always feel teeth should be replaced as soon as possible.
At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we believe in helping patients make informed decisions about dental treatments that are perfect for their lifestyle and budget. This is the case particularly for patients who have experienced tooth loss or recurring dental problems. Many of these patients struggle with self-esteem issues, refuse to show their teeth, and are generally unhappy about the state of their oral health. Our goal is to help change the lives of our patients whenever possible. One way we are able to do this is through the use of dental implants.
Would you love to improve your smile before the holidays but don’t feel there is enough time to complete the treatment needed? While it is true that there are certain restorative and cosmetic treatments, such as dental implants, that could not be completed in time for the upcoming holiday season, there are a number of treatments that require few appointments or have short treatment times that could easily have you enjoying a more beautiful smile before the new year rolls around.
Are you self-conscious because you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth? We know that it can be heartbreaking when a tooth needs to be extracted. It doesn’t matter if the tooth is extracted due to decay, a medical condition, or an accident, it can still be upsetting. However, the sadness doesn’t need to last long. There are multiple tooth replacement options available. Gone are the days of only one option to replace missing teeth. The replacement options of today closely resemble your natural teeth.
