Have you recently lost natural teeth? Are you unhappy with the way your smile looks and functions?
Have you struggled with the use of partial dentures and want to discover a permanent way to restore
your smile? If this sounds like you, you might be the perfect candidate for oral surgery.
Patients in the Springfield area who are open to the possibility of oral surgery may be considering the idea of having dental implants. Dental implants are permanent restorations that are surgically implanted into the jawbone and restored with a crowns to look and function just like natural teeth. This is considered one of the best ways to address tooth loss, and offers patients a permanent alternative to removable partial dentures.
Some patients are nervous about undergoing oral surgery. However, Dr. Kanorwalla of Vanguard Dental in Springfield helps patients feel at ease before and during their procedure with sedation dentistry. Her method of sedation dentistry includes the use of nitrous oxide (also referred to as laughing gas) possibly in combination with oral conscious sedation. Typically patients who have a procedure to place dental implants will benefit most from oral conscious sedation. It allows the patient to be completely relaxed but awake during the procedure. However, once the medication has been rested off, the patient awakens with little or no memories of the appointment. This is best for those who are anxious about visiting the dentist and having a dental implant procedure.
While there are other solutions for restoring the smile after tooth loss, most patients enjoy the benefits of dental implants. These restorations are long-lasting, highly successful, and can provide patients with an aesthetic way to restore chewing, biting, and speaking efficiency.
