How have changes in the field of prosthetic dentistry benefited patients? If you have looked into replacing a lost tooth – of if you have started to look into replacing several – you may have developed an interest in dental implants. With dental implants, it becomes possible to restore your smile with a permanent dental prosthetic. Having this additional support can make it easier to bite and chew food, while also being more comfortable in general. There are also benefits to the condition of your jawbone, as dental implants can take on important functions provided by the roots of your teeth.
Receiving Dental Implants To Hold Your Restoration
Dental implants are surgically implanted directly into your jawbone. This security allows the implant to hold a restoration securely, to the point that you can count on it to stay stable when you bite and chew.
A single implant is effective at holding an isolated prosthetic. If you need to address more significant tooth loss, a set of hybrid dentures can help. A sequence of mini-implants can be used to hold your denture, making them more comfortable, and more functional than if they were supported by suction or epoxies.
How Can Your Oral Health Be Affected By Tooth Loss?
You can be well aware of how tooth loss might impact your appearance. Any conspicuous gaps in your upper or lower teeth may make you feel decidedly self-conscious, and less willing to smile in public. What you should know is that missing teeth can lead to further losses, and allow remaining teeth to shift out of place. Absences can also make it harder to bite and chew – this can lead to jaw joint problems, and a limited diet.
Making Cosmetic Improvements By Restoring Your Incomplete Smile
An implant-supported modern restoration will offer a life-like appearance. When you couple their attractive look with their functional value, implant-supported prosthetic work can provide an amazing smile recovery.
