The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) sponsors Dental Awareness Month each September. The event is designed to highlight the uses and advantages of dental implants. This year’s theme, “Healthy Mouth, Healthy You,” focuses on the relationship between oral health and overall health. For example, it is well known that poor oral care and hygiene can be a contributing factor in heart disease as well as other illnesses.
For patients who are missing teeth, bone loss will eventually happen. Bone loss can lead to a change in facial structure, causing the mouth area to pull inward or pucker. Dental implants can stop and prevent this bone deterioration and restore the proper structure of the mouth. They are extremely strong and durable and will not move like regular dentures can.
Implants look, feel and function like real teeth and can help improve self-confidence by bringing back a beautiful smile. They can be used to replace everything from a single tooth to an entire set of teeth. Dental implants are investments that not only provide both cosmetic and restorative benefits, but add an incentive to maintain excellent oral health.
Dr. Fish is dedicated to providing patients in the Hildebran and Greater Hickory, NC areas with the best dental implants as well as cosmetic and sedation dentistry. His mission is to give patients the highest-quality care and service available, and he takes the time to listen and understand the unique needs of patients.
“Each person who comes to our practice for care deserves no less than excellence. We believe that an attentive and respectful environment creates trusting relationships. With this as a foundation, we make sure that our patients enjoy their visits as much as their smiles,” said Dr. Fish.
