If you are fed up with your incomplete smile, bothered by a loose dental prosthetic, or preparing to undergo a tooth extraction, you should take the time to learn about implant dentistry. When dental implants are made a part of your planned smile restoration, you can enjoy functional support as well as an improved appearance. Our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office can help you take care of your appearance and oral health by arranging your treatment. In addition to helping patients with a single missing tooth, we can discuss the benefits of having multiple implants placed to hold a full denture in position.

How Dental Implants Help Patients With Incomplete Smiles

Dental implants play an important role in helping a patient recover from the effects of tooth loss. While the implant is not the prosthetic itself, it does effectively act like a tooth root for a restoration. While it serves in that role, it will keep a replacement tooth stable enough to let you use it comfortably while biting and chewing. Your implant will also help you maintain your jaw health by stimulating the bone and protecting it against deterioration.

Making Plans To Use Implants As Part Of Your Smile Restoration

The advanced digital imaging technology in our office will be used to determine just the right angle and position for your dental implant (or implants). That placement is important, as it will affect just how stable your restoration is. Once the optimal positioning is determined, and we confirm that there are no oral health issues that need to be addressed first, we can move forward with planning your implant placement. Once this is done, you will go through a recovery period so that your jaw can heal. After this, you will return to have a custom restoration put in place. In addition to making sure that your restoration fits properly, we can confirm that it helps to restore the quality of your smile!

We Can Use Dental Implants To Hold Dentures

When patients lose an entire row of teeth, they can expect to receive dentures that are removable. While dentures that can be removed are effective at giving a person back their full smile, they can feature a frustrating lack of stability. With dental implants to hold them in place, they can provide better practical support while also feeling more comfortable!
