Living with an incomplete smile means living with an appearance that gives you less confidence. It also means living with a problem that makes it harder for you to bite and chew comfortably, and in the long term it can mean experiencing issues like TMJ disorder, more losses, and even problems with jawbone deterioration. At our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office, we can offer an effective solution for this problem. By having your incomplete smile restored with a dental implant-held restoration, we can help you regain confidence in your appearance, dental health, and bite function! This work relies on the placement of a small implant post that will permanently secure a restoration in a way that lets you bite, chew, and speak without difficulties.
Are You Ready To Do Something About Your Incomplete Smile?
If you keep trying to ignore the problems that stem from your incomplete smile, you can find that you are regularly enduring issues that undermine your confidence as well as concerns about your oral health. Beyond making your smile less attractive, this is a problem that will leave you with a weakened bite, as you will need to work around the gap left by your lost tooth. Over time, this can lead to an awkward change in your jaw movement that increases discomfort, and eventually results in TMJ disorder. You also need to worry that your teeth will loosen if they are next to that empty space, as they have less support. In time, you can even experience issues with unwelcome changes in your face and oral health due to jawbone deterioration!
What To Expect From Implant Dentistry
Implant dentistry gives you the means to secure a permanent prosthetic appliance without modifying other teeth. The role the implant plays in restoring your smile is important, though it is not the prosthetic itself. It will act the way your natural teeth roots do for teeth by holding it to your jawbone. The implant also helps by keeping neighboring roots secure and stimulating your jawbone. After it is placed and you go through an appropriate recovery period, you can have your permanent restoration put in place so that your smile is fully restored!
Maintaining Your Restored Smile
When you undergo prosthetic treatment, you can enjoy improvements in your bite function, oral health, and appearance. To make sure those benefits last, you should stay consistent with your regular dental visits as well as smile care at home. When you do so, you avoid new issues with healthy teeth and problems with the implant and restoration.
