Dental Implants: Giving You A Reason To Smile

What Are Dental Implants?

When you’re missing teeth, it really shows — literally. Most people can readily see that empty space in your smile. That’s not a good thing. In addition, you could have trouble chewing or talking.

If you have removable dentures, your replacement teeth could move around in your mouth. They can even fall out. How embarrassing is that?

By calling our St. John or Valparaiso dental offices, you can correct all of that with dental implants. Here’s how they work:

A dental crown is custom-made to look like the tooth it’s replacing
An artificial tooth root is surgically placed in your jawbone.
An abutment is connected to it
The dental crown is connected to the abutment.
If you have dentures, then you get several artificial roots implanted. Then the gum-colored base is connected to those implants.

Keep Your Family Smiling: 5 Habits for a Healthy Smile

July 11, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — creatingsmiles @ 9:29 pm

One of the biggest responsibilities that we have as parents is to teach our kids the right way to do things. We teach them how to dress themselves, how to treat people they meet, and how to work ethically and with integrity. As parents, we are also responsible for teaching our kids good personal hygiene. This includes washing themselves, washing their hands, and also taking care of their teeth. The dental hygiene part is really important. After your kids become adults, they will still take a shower each day. They will wash their hands each day. But with their teeth, they may brush each day, but that is only part of the puzzle when it comes to having a great smile.
