Learn How A Dental Implant-Supported Prosthetic Can Help You
Posted June 6, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
What can you gain when you have your dental prosthetic held in place with a dental implant? This modern approach to addressing an incomplete smile can offer the daily advantage of a more secure restoration, which can make it easier to bite and chew. An implant is set directly in your jawbone – because it is made from biocompatible titanium, your jawbone will actually fuse with when you heal. This can make your prosthetic more comfortable, because the support given by your implant mimics the kind of support teeth enjoy from their roots. With that said, comfort and functional advantages are not the only benefits to this treatment. You can actually prevent the loss of jawbone density, a problem that develops over the years when a person has lost teeth.
When you see your dentist about restoring your incomplete smile, they can examine your oral health to determine the best treatment course. There are cases where existing gum disease, or a weakened jawbone, will delay the implant placement procedure. With that said, after you are approved, and your implant has been placed, you can have your prosthetic secured. While an implant can support an individual restoration – essentially acting like an artificial tooth root – you can use a sequence of implants to hold dentures, too.
