Will tooth loss permanently rob you of the ability to bite and chew comfortably? Just one missing tooth can interfere with your dental function, and that can lead to frustration as well as potential dental problems. Fortunately, the right dental prosthetic can give you better bite support so that you can avoid these difficulties! At our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office, we are ready to talk patients through the benefits of implant dentistry, as well as the process of placing and restoring an implant. In addition to being used as a way to address the loss of one tooth, implants are effective at holding larger restorations that replace multiple teeth!
Tooth Loss Can Take A Serious Toll On Your Appearance And Oral Health
Losing even one tooth can lead to serious problems and frustrations. Depending on which tooth was lost, you may find that the problem has permanently changed your smile. Even if you are able to keep a missing tooth hidden, you can grow concerned about how your ability to bite and chew has been compromised by a gap. Unfortunately, a change in your bite function can be more than just an irritant while you eat. If you change your jaw movement to accommodate this loss, you can unknowingly create stress on the joints and muscles, which can lead to issues with TMJ disorder.
Why Patients Choose To Have Their Restorations Held With Dental Implants
Through the placement of dental implants, it becomes possible to permanently secure dental restorations that benefit your smile and bite function. The placement process will involve the setting of the implant in your jawbone – the angle and location of placement will be determined at an appointment at our practice. When you have healed, you will have a custom dental crown, denture, or dental bridge secured!
The Long-Term Benefits Of A Restored Smile
With your bite function restored, you are less likely to experience problems with jaw pain or sensitivity. Because your implant can hold a lifelike restoration, you can feel comfortable smiling. In addition to providing these benefits, implants also help patients protect their health by protecting their jawbone against deterioration. They provide this protection by stimulating the bone – over time, that stimulation will keep nutrients flowing to your jaw so that the loss of density does not occur.
