Nothing ruins a fun day out with your dog at the Paw Park quicker than a dental emergency! When you’re breaking up a scuffle between dogs, you slip and knock your tooth out, which is not only painful, but also embarrassing. An immediate visit to your trusted team at JL Dental informs you that you’re going to have to replace that tooth. If you’ve suffered a dental emergency, dental implants in Arnold can help.
Handling Dental Emergencies
When you have a tooth that’s been broken, dislodged, or completely knocked out, time is of the essence. It’s important to visit your dentist as soon as possible because the chances of saving your tooth are best within the first hour of the accident or injury.
If it’s determined that your tooth can’t be saved Dr. Jonathan or Laura Mears will discuss tooth replacement options with you. It’s important to protect your oral health by replacing your tooth as soon as possible so your bone remains healthy and stimulated, and your healthy teeth are not at risk for shifting.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is one of the best replacement options that dentistry has to offer because it restores both your root and your tooth. Our doctors will surgically place a biocompatible titanium post into your bone and allow it time to heal and integrate with your bone. This creates a stable and firm foundation for your new tooth, which is a custom designed porcelain crown.
While many dentists refer their patients to specialists for the surgical placement of their dental implants, our doctors can handle all aspects of implant dentistry here in the comfort of our own office. This means you’ll work with the team you know and trust for both the placement and restoration of your dental implant.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
With your new implant tooth, you’ll enjoy all the function you had with your natural tooth, which means you’ll be eating, chewing, smiling, and brushing with ease again in no time. Implants are easy to take care of, as you’ll be able to brush and floss as you were used to, and they offer great longevity because with excellent home care and regular cleanings and checkups, they can potentially last for a lifetime. This also makes them a smart long-term investment in your oral health.
If you experience a dental emergency, the first thing to do is to contact your trusted team at JL Dental. We’ll make every effort to see you as soon as possible, get you diagnosed quickly, and put you back on the path to wellness again.
