Is your oral health being negatively affected by tooth loss? Is there a problem tooth currently present in your smile that cannot be saved? When your dental needs center around prosthetic dental work, or dental extraction, oral health care can start to feel intimidating. What you should know is that at our Katy, TX dental practice, we can make significant smile work attainable by working with you to understand your full needs, and making necessary services attainable. When it comes to missing or significantly unhealthy teeth, we can include plans that feature dental implant-held restorations that can improve your appearance, and help you regain better dental function.
How Serious Are Your Tooth Problems?
If you have already lost teeth, or if you face the need for a tooth extraction, your oral health issues can be significant. These problems can affect your ability to bite and chew food, which can lead to additional concerns about pain, and wear and tear on remaining teeth. A compromised bite function can also lead to TMJ dysfunction! Taking action against these issues can help you improve your smile, and improve your quality of life.
Arranging A Full Mouth Reconstruction
For serious dental issues, you and your dentist can discuss a full mouth reconstruction, which can include all work needed to restore your oral health. The most serious issues can be identified and addressed first, before taking time to address problems that call for dental crowns, or dental fillings. While tooth replacement and restoration can be a big part of your reconstruction, you and your dentist can also devise plans to improve your bite function, and take on any problems you might have with TMJ dysfunction.
Your Implant-Held Restoration Can Support Better Dental Function
When prosthetic dental work is performed, you can learn about the benefits of having dental implants placed to hold your restorations. Why should implants be included in your plans to restore your smile? These titanium posts keep prosthetic appliances permanently in place, so that they offer better support, and feel more comfortable. The right sequence of implants can offer a remarkable degree of support, and you can even count on them to permanently support dentures!
