The Man Who Wouldn’t Smile!

Losing your teeth can be traumatic. Not only is it impossible to eat or chew comfortably, but social situations can become painful and embarrassing.

Convention dentures have long been the established solution for tooth loss. But, it certainly hasn’t been the ideal solution! Slippage, chafing, and inability to chew or eat normally are just a few of the drawback. Dentistry has long needed a better answer to the problem of missing teeth.

Dental implants Danbury CT beforeDental implants is that answer! Implants are replacement tooth roots that are permanently placed in the jawbone and then crowned with a natural looking and functioning custom-crafted replacement tooth. Implants are often used to replace a single missing tooth, but they are increasingly being used as the stabilizing foundation for dentures.

A recent patient of ours had experienced the discomfort that missing teeth can cause. It was hard to even get him to smile. Implant retained dentures were the perfect solution for him!

Implant retained dentures are held in place by implants strategically placed in the jawbone which along with a prosthesis securely hold dentures in their optimum position.

Some of the benefits of implant retained dentures are:
• Look and function like your own natural teeth.
• Long-lasting and durable
• More comfortable and stable than conventional dentures.
• Have a more natural biting and chewing capacity.
• Implant retained dentures also protect your supporting bone structure from deterioration.
• They are easier to maintain than conventional dentures.

Our patient loved his new smile using implant retained dentures. In fact, we can’t get him to stop smiling now!

Do you want to throw hundreds of dollars in the garbage can?

We didn’t think so. You’ve already paid for your benefits; make sure you use them! Here are four things you need to know to maximize the benefits you’ve paid for:

1. Any money you’ve already spent toward your deductible will roll back to zero on January 1, 2016. If you’ve met your deductible or are close to it, you could save money by completing treatments this year instead of next year. Call your insurance company to find out how much has been applied toward your deductible and what treatments might be covered.

2. Preventive appointments, including exams, cleanings, and x‐rays, are typically covered in full. Did you visit Danbury dentist, Gerfen, twice this year? If not, call now to schedule another cleaning before the year‐end deadline (and remember to schedule cleanings for your family members as well)! You’ve already paid for these valuable visits, don’t miss out!

3. If you have a healthcare flexible spending account, you will lose any unused funds in it at the end of the year (or grace period, depending on your plan). Remember, these funds can be used for dental care!

4. Delaying treatment could be costly. Avoiding treating a simple cavity now could turn into a root canal later. Prevent more extensive and costly treatments later by taking advantage of your benefits before the end of this year!

It’s already October ‐ benefit from your benefits before the year runs out!

As always, if you need any assistance navigating your dental insurance benefits, we’re happy to help out. Call us now at (203)-743-1972 with any questions and to book appointments for you and your family and take advantage of your benefits before they disappear. Our schedule fills up fast around the end of the year, so don’t delay!
