If you had an unfortunate auto accident and you knocked out your two front teeth, talk with a dental professional, such as Fuller Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, about getting dental implants. You don't want to spend a lifetime being reminded of your accident every time you look in the mirror, and you don't want to be inconvenienced for a lifetime.
Dental implants are synthetic teeth that are surgically implanted in the mouth. These implants are going to be great investment for your future, and they will provide the following benefits.
A dental implant is the healthiest option you can pick after your accident for tooth replacement. You will still be able to brush your teeth and floss in between them to protect the gum tissue to maintain your oral health, and you won't have to worry about replacement pieces rubbing on the gums or deteriorating the tissue. The implants won't get cavities and are going to be strong for your daily eating and speaking needs.
Dentures can sometimes look oversized and unnatural when people smile, and a bridge or flipper can look fake or show metal. The hardware from the implants will drill into the bone and be covered up by the tissue of the mouth, and they will be shaped and sized to look like the teeth that fell out. After healing from the accident and the implantation process heal you will have a natural and perfect looking even smile.
With implants you don't have to worry about the tooth coming loose while you are eating or going through life, and you don't have to worry about it falling out at an embarrassing time. You also don't have to worry about removing the unit to cleanse it every night, or replacing it every decade like other tooth replacement options.
The dental experts will want to see if you have enough bone density to have the implants put in. If you don't, you may need to have some bone grafted in from another area of the body. Getting an implant is going to help you feel like yourself again after your accident. You will have to see an oral surgeon if you want to get a consultation to have the dental implants put in. Talk with your insurance provider to see what they are going to cover, and to see if the auto insurance provider paying for the medical expenses from the accident is going to cover some of the costs.
