How much of an effect will the loss of teeth have on a patient? This issue can pose considerable oral health problems – even the loss of one tooth is enough to interfere with your smile, and dental function. Fortunately, patients can now look forward to a great smile recovery thanks to modern prosthetic dental care. You can receive a restoration to replace a single tooth, or a larger prosthetic to address the loss of many teeth. For superior functional benefits, and a more comfortable experience, you can have your restoration supported by a dental implant. Patients who receive implant support can have a prosthetic that addresses the absence of a tooth’s root, in addition to the crown (the portion of the tooth above your gum line).
Planning To Fully Restore Your Incomplete Smile
Why should you make a full restoration of your smile a priority? Even a single missing tooth puts you in jeopardy of problems like TMJ dysfunction, as your ability to bite, chew, and speak can be compromised. You can also suffer additional losses, as teeth around a gap have less support. Partial and full dentures make it possible to address all absences in your upper or lower jaw with a single prosthetic.
Using Dental Implants To Support Your Prosthetic
Dental implant support essentially acts like a tooth root in several key ways. Your implant will support your prosthetic by linking it to your jawbone, giving it the kind of stability natural teeth receive from their roots. Implants also take on the functions of tooth roots by stimulating your jaw when you bite and chew. That stimulation is key to sustaining the health of your jawbone. Patients without implant support can suffer a deterioration in their jaw that creates additional troubles.
