Port Charlotte’s Dr. Tony Menendez Restores the Real Feel of Smiles with Dental Implants
Dental implants are the best solution to severely damaged, extracted and lost teeth. They’re one of the most permanent dental restorative options that provide a natural look and feel like almost nothing else. And yet, some of Dr. Tony Menendez’s Port Charlotte patients still feel apprehensive or skeptical about the dental implant procedure. Will it work for them? Is it painful? How long will the procedure take? Is it worth it? Dr. Menendez wants to clear up some of the fears and dispel a few misconceptions about dental implants, and explain what a tremendous benefit they can be to many Florida residents.
Some of the common questions about dental implants can be found directly on Dr. Tony Menendez’s website: http://www.drtonymenendez.com, but many potential patients still want to know more about the procedure itself and just what makes dental implants so beneficial. Dental implants are indeed an investment, but that’s primarily because, with proper care, they can last a lifetime. They involve little to no pain, they do not require strict dietary limitations or slip out of place like dentures, and they help to reduce periodontal health risks that can occur if missing or damaged teeth are not restored.
The stability and longevity of dental implants result from the direct placement of the implant into the jawbone. During a healing period the jaw will actually grow around the implant as though it was the root of a tooth. This placement method also enables the patient to regain the real-feel of an original tooth. On the surface, the dental implant is covered with a custom crafted abutment that is created to perfectly suit the patient’s surrounding teeth, making the implant almost indistinguishable. Once the process is completed over several months and full healing time is allowed, the implant becomes a part of the patient’s true smile.
