Because they can give you a natural-looking smile restoration, you can safely assume that your experience with prosthetic dental work will be a positive one. However, you might not be aware of how much support you should expect from this restorative dental work. After all, tooth loss harms more than just your smile. You can find it harder to eat your favorite foods, and it may lead to the losses of more teeth. With dental implant support, you can enjoy a recovery from tooth loss that sees you benefiting from improved bite function, more comfort, and even support for your jawbone, which can deteriorate after teeth have been lost.
Our Practice Is Ready To Address Different Degrees Of Tooth Loss
Prosthetic work may involve replacing a single tooth, or a complete replacement of your upper or lower row of teeth. Fortunately, dental implants are able to hold different types of restorations, so the degree of tooth loss you suffer will not interfere with your prosthetic experience. While a single implant is needed to hold an isolated replacement tooth, multiple implants need to be set if you need to have a larger restoration, like a set of dentures, secured.
How Dental Implants Protect Your Jaw From Problems
Dental implants can make restorations more stable, so you can confidently bite and chew food. They can also feel more secure when you speak, making you more comfortable throughout your day. One big advantage to having implants in place to hold your restoration concerns the health of your jaw. Without the roots of teeth to stimulate the bone, your jaw can deteriorate over time. Implant-held prosthetics are able to reproduce that stimulation, and keep your jawbone in good condition. Jawbone deterioration can rob people of valuable oral health support, and negatively affect how they look.
