When tooth loss occurs, you are affected by more than just a superficial smile change. The roots of our teeth play an important role in protecting our jawbone against deterioration. Over time, someone who has lost teeth will lose mass because their roots are no longer in place to stimulate the bone and move nutrients to it. Dental implants address this issue, and they also provide remarkable bite support and more comfort with your restoration. At our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office, we are prepared to take on tooth loss. We use advanced digital imaging tools to determine just the right angle and placement for these posts, which will help them keep restorations secure and stable.
Why Dental Implants Are Recommended For People Affected By Tooth Loss
With dental implants to support dental restorations, patients can have an easier time biting, chewing, and speaking. Implants act like artificial roots as they hold restorations in place, anchoring them to your jawbone so that they do not become loose or interfere with neighboring teeth. This stability helps you bite and chew the way you used to. Doing so is more than just comfortable – by making use of an implant-held restoration, you once again produce stimulation in the bone that encourages helpful nutrient flow.
How Imaging Technology Helps Us Plan Your Procedure
Through the right use of digital imaging technology, we can create detailed plans for the angle and placement of your implants. CBCT scanning produces 3D images that we can use to determine just how we should proceed with your placement. Early evaluations also provide important warnings if there are issues that interfere with plans for placement. When these problems are identified, we can plan the appropriate restorative dental services to prepare you to move forward with your care.
What To Expect When Your Restorative Work Is Completed
At the end of a procedure to fully restore your smile, you can be impressed at just how much support you have from your implant-held restoration. Just as you should maintain good daily habits to protect your natural teeth, you should practice smart care at home to protect implant-held restorations. At regular dental checkups, you will receive helpful updates about the condition of your work, or an early warning if there are signs of trouble that you should know about.
