It can be difficult to find the benefits of tooth loss. With that said, it is sometimes important to fully remove an unhealthy tooth, as this can lead to treatment that preserves your full smile. When you need to do something about an extracted or missing tooth, consider the benefits of implant dentistry! Through this approach to care, our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office can provide you with a secure restoration that actually supports your ability to bite and chew. It also prevents a problem that people often have after they lose teeth. The implant’s placement directly into your jawbone can lead to a stimulation of the tissues that will help you preserve its health and density.

Is It Time For You To Replace A Lost Tooth?

The longer you wait to address a gap from a missing tooth, the more likely you are to experience the complications that occur when tooth loss is not managed. A single missing tooth can make it difficult for you to bite and chew, which can lead to more discomfort that affects you on a daily basis. You also need to watch out for movement in your neighboring teeth, as they will have less stability. As you continue to ignore tooth loss, a change in jawbone density can negatively affect your appearance and oral health.

Making Plans To Receive A Dental Implant-Held Restoration

Dental implants hold restorations in a way that mimics the way roots hold teeth in position. Through a form of oral surgery, implant posts are actually set in the sockets where teeth roots were housed. We do this after carefully determining just where your implant post should go. Once you heal properly, you can return to our practice to receive a custom restoration.

What Can I Do To Avoid Losing Another Tooth?

Losing one tooth is certainly a problem. Unfortunately, many people will lose several over time, a problem that they are more likely to encounter if they do not address the gap that is already present because of tooth loss. The teeth at either side of this space can loosen gradually, as they have less support than they are supposed to. Because of this, you should think of promptly addressing your incomplete smile as one way to avoid future problems. Another way to protect yourself involves scheduling regular dental exams to receive early warnings about the state of your oral health.
