Are Dental Implants Right for You?

added on: January 14, 2016

If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may have given up any hope of ever seeing your smile again. Maybe you’re embarrassed. Maybe you lost some self-confidence along with those missing teeth. Maybe you’re even scared — afraid to go on with a smile that leaves you feeling less than your best, but scared of any possible solution too, worried about the time, the discomfort, the cost.

Before you decide to shut your mouth, hide your smile, and let those fears get the best of you, take some time to think about dental implants. Ask yourself a few quick questions:

● Do you want a full smile that looks and feels like your natural teeth?
● Do you want to relax with a smile free from the worry of slipping, shifting, or clicking that may come with traditional dentures or partials?
● Do you want a generous grin you can care for normally with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, dental implants from Dr. David M. Rizk may be right for you.

Dr. Rizk will perform your dental implant procedure in-house. Your comfort is among our top priorities, so he will spend the time to fully explain the procedure and discuss the use of local anesthesia or oral sedation. Dr. Rizk will never rush through any procedure, but he understands your time is important. He and his team will schedule appointments sufficient for your implant procedure, while working efficiently to get you out of the chair and back to your normal routine.

While each patient’s case is unique, dental implants tend to be a cost-effective means of restoring your smile. They are safe and durable, and can even last a lifetime with proper care. The implants help protect any remaining teeth from slippage by providing your mouth with additional support, and they help maintain the shape of your face without the sagging, sunken look that can go along with missing teeth.

Dr. Rizk and his team understand the worry that may come with your decision to choose dental implants. But we don’t want that worry to stand in the way of restoring your dental health and your confidence. If your smile has been missing, Dr. Rizk and his team can help you find it.
