Addiction to drugs or alcohol is a real disease that affects many lives. Most of these substances will cause significant damage to the teeth in addition to overall health. However, while the addiction can be overcome, the damage to your teeth and smile may persist.
It’s important to many former addicts that they can restore their healthly, beautiful smiles after overcoming their addictions. After such a long, difficult process like addiction recovery, you deserve to have a smile that you can show off proudly.
How Dental Professionals Can Help
There are many restorative procedures that can be performed to get your teeth and gums back to their former function, health, and beauty. These restorative procedures can include:
- Dental Crowns
- Dental veneers
- Dental implants
In addition to the teeth, drugs can also damage gum tissue causing gum disease. If you have recently gone through a rehabilitation program to quit drugs and are looking for a fresh start, it’s important to have your gum health evaluated. Healthy gums are the base of any healthy smile. To make an appointment, please contact Littleton Implants & Periodontics today. Our office is located here in Littleton, Colorado.
