Welcome to our oral health blog! We are happy that you found our online home. If you live in the Mansfield, Texas area, we’d love the opportunity to earn your trust and friendship.

At Sanders Family Dental, we have all the solutions you will need to keep your mouth free of disease and decay and your smile looking great. And we will be here for those moments of crisis when the unthinkable becomes a reality. Today, we want to talk about one such traumatic situation: adult tooth loss.

If a tooth ever becomes dislodged–no matter how it happens–it will be life-changing. It will be bloody, painful, and emotional enough to overtake you.

And as awful as all that sounds, you will need to find a good solution fast in order to keep the situation from getting any worse.

In our opinion, your best bet for dealing with tooth loss is with a dental implant procedure. This is a two-step dental surgery that gives you good replacements for any missing teeth, and it is meant to be a permanent solution, if the implants are cared for properly. But let’s talk about why you will want them in the first place.

You’ll Be Missing Out When You Are Missing Teeth

Most of us take our health and happiness for granted until something happens that makes us realize how good we had it. This is true for the situation in our mouth as well. And once you realize how bad it can be, you will miss the way things were.

Think about it: once you are missing teeth, you won’t be able to consume all of the foods that you love, and/or the ones that are really good for you. This is because without a full set of teeth, you won’t be able to chew effectively any longer. You will be forced to alter your diet and consume things that are easier to get down, but may not be so beneficial to your health. Eventually you will notice the toll it takes on your body.

That is not going to be any fun for you. But wait, it gets worse! There is also the way it changes your look, and not for the better.

Eventually, your cheeks will collapse, adding unwanted years to your appearance. And the empty spaces where teeth should be will be impossible for others to ignore every time you open your mouth to eat, talk, laugh, etc..

This situation will make you feel embarrassed and less likely to want to smile or socialize. Feeling that way will make you withdraw more and become depressed. Your personal and professional life will take a hit.

Who wants to live like that?

The good news is that with our dental implant procedure, you can greatly improve your health and your looks in just two simple steps.

Can Dental Implants Really Restore My Life?

Here’s the skinny: dental implants are artificial substitutes for your natural teeth. But they aren’t your grandfather’s artificial teeth, we can assure you! Ours are surgically inserted into your jawbone, and are built to last.

This is how it works:

Initially, a small titanium post will be inserted into your jaw. This post, which actually looks more like a screw, will create a sturdy foundation for a prosthetic tooth (a dental crown) that will be attached several months later, after the post has sufficiently fused with your jawbone.

Once the crown is in place, you will be ready to get on with your life as if nothing ever happened. You’ll regain most of your biting power so you can once again eat more nutritious meals. Plus, there won’t be any more reason to be self-conscious about your smile or hide out in shame. Our dental implants will match the look and feel of your natural teeth and can flesh out your sunken facial structure, making you appear more youthful.
