There are restorative procedures that can permanently replace teeth that are already lost, or teeth that need to be extracted. If you are someone who has an incomplete smile, you should know that implant dentistry makes it possible for you to enjoy support from prosthetic appliances that are permanently held in place. Implants act like artificial roots for the replacement teeth that close smile gaps. They offer functional support, and they also offer support to preserve your jawbone health and density. At our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office, we are ready to discuss the benefits of implant dentistry with you, and help you regain a truly healthy smile.

Treatment For Tooth Loss Should Be A Priority

Why should you be careful not to put off treatment if you lose a tooth, or if you have already lost several? One problem is that when just one tooth is missing, you can struggle with bite difficulties as well as a higher risk for tooth loss. You also need to worry about the deterioration of your jawbone, something that can negatively impact your well-being and interfere with prosthetic treatment. The sooner you can see your dentist to discuss care, the sooner we can start the process of restoring your oral health with a dental implant-held restoration.

Planning Your Prosthetic Treatment

Dental implants are placed directly into your jawbone. To ensure that your procedure is a success, we need to identify just the right location and angle for the implant (or implants) you will receive, and we need to take measurements to ensure gaps are filled properly. We can make this process easier for you thanks to the digital technology in our office. With our 3D imaging technology, we can carefully plan out the different steps in your care, then start you n a process that will improve your appearance, dental health, and bite function.

What To Expect After Your Smile Is Restored

Implant-held dental crowns offer cosmetic and functional support that can give you back your full confidence in your smile! With the aid of the implant anchoring it to your jawbone, a prosthetic crown can absorb bite pressure and help you bite and chew foods that you previously gave up on. Restorative work also helps to stabilize teeth around a gap, which means you are less likely to lose them. Because the implant stimulates the surrounding jawbone tissue, it is easier for you to avoid difficulties with density loss that can occur over time.
