When you’re happy confidence rises through the roof.
Lose your front teeth and confidence is lost in your ability to smile right along with them.
Pharrell Williams sings a song entitled “Happy”.
He says, “Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth.
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.”
In Dentistry patients who have lost their front teeth are made to feel happy after they are replaced.
Professor Markus B. Blatz said it best, “the goal remains the same for our surgical and our restorative interventions: we try to mimic nature as closely as possible.”
We see the loss of teeth in daily accidents from sporting injuries, automobile collisions, and tooth loss due to periodontal disease.
The options for the replacement of missing teeth are few when you consider which option avails the ability to chew with maximum efficiency.
Dental implant placement provides the stability necessary for optimal mastication.
Keeping Dr. Blatz’s goal in mind, we now see a merging of medical imaging and dental software that allows virtual surgery to be performed, mapped out well in advance of actual surgical procedures.
In this manner intervening variables can be controlled and planned for in the actual surgery.
Potential problems can be discussed with the patient for greater understanding how to proceed.
Surgical procedures are no longer looked upon as vague and the patient left outside the circle of understanding now bonds with the team.
When you’re happy you place your body in a state of greater confront of the unknown.
The public becomes better informed when the role of a knowledgeable patient is understood.
Knowledgeable patients become a greater part of the healing process.
It becomes very difficult seeing patients drop out of their social affairs because of missing teeth.
Life requires a healthy smile to advance in all levels of social structure, business and personal.
When you’re happy a smile is worn on your face even if appreciated only by you and your dentist.
