You could have difficulty enjoying nutritious foods, you may not be able to speak as clearly as you would like, and you become more likely to develop gum disease. Dentures are a common solution for missing teeth, but they come with their own set of issues. Your dentist in Allen is here to explain why implants are the better option for many people.

Fortunately, your dentist in Allen offers a wonderful solution with implant dentistry. By surgically placing a sturdy foundation of dental implants, we can help you enjoy a stable smile for a lifetime to come.

We’d like to ask you a sensitive question—when was the last time you saw the dentist? Because the American Dental Association recommends biannual dental checkups and cleanings, the correct answer to that question is sometime in the last six months. However, there are many people who are simply too afraid to see the dentist. Estimates are that more than 30 percent of adults fall into this category. If you happen to be one of these people, we’d like to make a suggestion—see your dentist in Allen just to talk about sedation dentistry. Dr. Michael Ryan and Dr. Laura Ryan offer three types of sedation. The one that’s right for you will depend on your level of anxiety and what kind of dental procedure you need.

Avoiding the dentist for tooth pain is never a good choice for your dental health, but once you start seeing physical signs of tooth decay your oral health could really be in jeopardy. What options do you have once you’ve realized you have a dying tooth? Your dentist in Allen at St. Ryan Dental Group can help you to explore the best options to get your dental health back on track.
