The Role Dental Implants Play In Prosthetic Dental Work
Posted November 21, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
What role do dental implants play in prosthetic dental work? The implant by itself is not your restoration. What they actually provide is support, so that your restoration is more comfortable, while also offering more functional benefits. Dental implants help patients feel more confident in their smile after suffering tooth loss. They can help with isolated, individual losses, but they are effective at restoring more serious losses, too. If you are ready to do something about gaps in your smile, you can set up a consultation to learn if you qualify for implants. In addition to securing restorations, implants benefit you by limiting any shifting that may occur with remaining teeth, while also helping to prevent jawbone resorption.
It is possible to support a set of dentures with dental implants. Sometimes referred to as hybrid dentures, implant-supported dentures can make your prosthetic experience a more comfortable one. This will help you avoid issues with poor support for your dentures, and make them more effective as you bite and chew food.
A single lost tooth can have a serious effect on your oral health. The problems can start almost immediately – a missing tooth can compromise how you bite and chew food. Over time, this can lead to jaw problems, and excess wear and tear on remaining teeth. You are also more vulnerable to further tooth loss, meaning the problem can grow more severe over time, and require more consequential prosthetic care.
