If you have lost just one tooth, you can have problems with your smile and oral health that can feel unfixable. While you may have permanently lost that tooth, there are restorative procedures that can give you back your confidence in the way you look, and even in the way you bite and chew. Our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office is here to help you if you want to look into implant dentistry. Through this approach to prosthetic treatment, you can enjoy permanent stability for a restoration that will help improve your smile as well as your oral health. Over time, the presence of your implant can actually support your jaw health, as it can stimulate the bone and keep it from deteriorating.

The Impact Of Tooth Loss Can Be Difficult To Ignore

After losing teeth, you can quickly discover just how important your full smile is for your bite function. When you have a compromised ability to bite and chew, you can overwork certain teeth, and you can cause mounting stress that leads to jaw pain and stiffness over time. Eventually, this can turn into an ongoing problem with TMJ disorder to discuss with your dentist. Of course, you can also have concerns about your appearance, as gaps in your smile can make you feel less attractive, and they can make you appear older and less healthy.

How Dental Implants Help You Regain Your Smile And Bite Function

Through implant dentistry, we can secure permanent prosthetic restorations that let you smile, bite, and chew, with renewed confidence. A single implant can hold a custom dental crown, or you can use several to hold a larger appliance. Their role in restoring your smile mimics that of your natural teeth roots. They keep prosthetic appliances secured to your jawbone and help stabilize neighboring teeth. They also stimulate the surrounding bone, which keeps it from losing density over time.

Maintaining Your Appearance And Oral Health After Your Smile Is Restored

Once your prosthetic dental work is complete, you can have renewed confidence in your dental health, as well as in your appearance. With the right approach to oral hygiene, you can stop issues from occurring and preserve the results you enjoy. Regular dental exams can provide important feedback and help you keep up with your results.
