There can be be little difficulty in recognizing how tooth loss affects you. Over time, this is a problem that can rob you of confidence in your smile, and it can make it harder for you to maintain a bite function that is comfortable. At our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office, we can recommend prosthetic dental work that will give you back your confidence in the way you look as well as restore your bite. Dental implants can provide meaningful support to custom restorations that close the gaps left by missing teeth. This arrangement makes it easier to support your bite health as it also gives you renewed confidence in the way you look. Over time, it can even help you maintain your health by preserving your jawbone density and well-being.

Is It Time For You To Do Something About Tooth Loss?

The sooner you act to address tooth loss, the less likely you are to experience complications associated with this issue. A prompt response to this problem can also make it easier to proceed with treatment that relies on implant support. Through implant dentistry, we can permanently hold a replacement tooth in place, giving you the means to enjoy renewed bite support as well as welcome changes to your appearance. We can discuss the role this approach can play in giving you back a single missing tooth, or we can make plans to take on more advanced issues with tooth loss.

Using A Dental Implant To Hold Your Replacement Tooth

A dental implant is carefully set into your jawbone—to make sure it is in just the right space and at the right angle, we can perform a thorough review of your jaw structure. The post sits in the same area where teeth roots previously enjoyed support. Over time, your jawbone will fuse with the implant as you heal. Once you are ready, your dentist will affix a permanent dental restoration to close your smile gap! This gives it the kind of stability that makes biting and chewing easier. It can even help support neighboring teeth so that they are less likely to shift.

Life After Fully Restoring Your Smile

Once you complete treatment to regain your full smile, you can enjoy a renewed feeling of confidence, and you can look forward to biting and chewing foods that were previously difficult to eat. The act of biting and chewing will stimulate your jawbone, creating signals for your body to move nutrients to the bone and keep it from deteriorating. This restorative dental work will also help you support neighboring teeth, as the post provides extra security for neighboring roots.
