How much can a dentist really do for you after you lose teeth? A single gap in your smile can have a significant impact on your appearance, dental health, and bite function. If it is not addressed, these issues can worsen, and you can actually lose more teeth over time! Fortunately, with the right prosthetic treatment, you can make positive changes and address these issues. Our Mansfield, TX dental practice can recommend that you receive a restoration held in place with a dental implant. Through this arrangement, we can provide a prosthetic solution that makes positive changes to your dental function, appearance, ad overall oral health!
Can Prosthetic Treatment Positively Change Your Dental Health And Smile?
If you need to arrange prosthetic treatment to regain your full smile, you may have doubts about the impact that treatment can have on your oral health. A lifelike appliance can certainly give you back your confidence in the way you look, but can it also help you bite and chew with more comfort? How much good will it do when it comes to supporting neighboring teeth, which lose support when their neighbor is lost? Prosthetic treatment that relies on dental implants can have many welcome benefits. In fact, this approach is even able to address jawbone deterioration, a problem after tooth loss that other approaches to treatment leave unresolved.
How Implants Provide Support For Permanent Restorations
Implant dentistry is able to help you support lifelike prosthetic appliances so that they can offer lasting bite support and stability for neighboring teeth. An implant is carefully placed in the space where teeth roots were formerly held. The placement of an implant (or implants to hold multiple prostheses) will take place at an initial appointment. After this service, you will wait for healing to take place. During this time, your jawbone will actually fuse to the implant to provide added stability. At a second appointment, restorations are secured so that you can enjoy a full, confident smile once again!
Life After Your Smile Is Completely Restored
After prosthetic treatment is completed, you can marvel at how comfortable you are with your appearance as well as your ability to bite and chew food. To make sure you remain happy with this work, keep up with good oral hygiene habits at home, and see your dentist for regular checkups. During these visits, we can check on your prosthetic treatment just as we can check on your natural teeth.
