If you have experienced tooth loss, and you have yet to start planning prosthetic dental work, you continue to miss out on important smile and oral health improvements. Tooth loss can be a big problem for the way a person looks. After all, depending on the teeth that are missing, it can be difficult to smile or even speak without betraying those unfortunate gaps. You should know that in addition to being an issue for the way you look, tooth loss creates problems for your dental function – if you allow those problems to go unchecked, the situation can even worsen over time. Your Rapid City, SD dentist’s office can talk to you about the effects that tooth loss can continue to have on your life, and talk with you about using dental implants to bring back your full smile.
Waiting To Restore Your Smile Can Create Problems For Your Oral Health
Without a full set of teeth, you can be forced to give up certain foods that have become difficult to eat, and change the way you go about biting and chewing. The loss of a favorite food can be understandably frustrating. That change in your dental function can create problems with TMJ dysfunction. It can also leave your remaining teeth in a situation where they have to absorb more friction. That extra work, along with the lack of support for teeth around a gap, create problems that can increase your need for restorative dental procedures over time.
Learning About The Benefits Of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer impressive benefits that can positively change the quality of your life. With a restoration held in place with a dental implant, you can find biting and chewing to be easier. This means returning to those foods you had to relinquish as part of your diet, and it means you can go back to a more natural bite function. Implants also help with a long-term problem of jawbone deterioration, which affects people over time after losing teeth. Implants help in this situation by stimulating the bone, which keeps nutrients flowing to it. In the absence of that stimulation, a person’s jaw can lose mass, and weaken.
Can You Qualify To Receive A Same-Day Implant?
Unlike a typical dental implant placement, the placement of a same-day implant gives you the chance to show off smile improvements without delay! The same-day implant includes a restoration that can add to the value of your appearance by making your smile complete again. This restoration can stay until you are approved to undergo your official implant restoration. If you want to qualify for this approach to restoring your smile, you should know that jawbone deterioration over time lowers your chances for being approved.
