Replacing A Lost Tooth With A Single Tooth Implant

A person’s dental function can be compromised to a frustrating degree when a single tooth becomes sensitive or sore. The absence of a single tooth can lead to further frustration, as well as as issues with your appearance and dental function you can be eager to solve. In order to fully resolve the matter, you should consider having a dental prosthetic secured with a dental implant. Prosthetic work involving dental implants can give a person permanent support for their restoration. It can also make it easier for an individual to bite, chew, and speak the way they did before they experienced tooth loss. Our Katy, TX dental practice is prepared to restore your incomplete smile, and we can take further steps to address any additional problems with your oral health.

Dental Implants Offer Important Functional Benefits For Patients Who Lose Teeth

Implant dentistry has become popular because it allows people to experience more than just cosmetic improvements from replacing a lost tooth. Your dental implant can provide a degree of stability from a restoration that affords you the ability to bite, chew, and speak as if you still had all of your teeth in place. Over time, the implant also provides support for your jawbone, as the stimulation it creates can prevent problems from a lack of nutrient flow to the bone.

A Single Tooth Implant Can Enjoy Permanent Support Without Affecting Neighboring Teeth

A dental implant can provide support for a restoration without interfering with neighboring teeth. Dental bridges rely on a pair of dental crowns for permanent support, meaning you have to heave healthy teeth modified in order to keep the restoration secured. With a dental implant, you can hold your prosthetic without interfering with neighboring teeth. The implant actually provides benefits to neighboring teeth because it can stop their roots from shifting over time.

Lose Or Injure A Tooth In An Emergency? We Can Help!

Our practice is ready to help people deal with tooth loss in many different circumstances. We often perform prosthetic work as part of a larger plan to perform a full mouth reconstruction. With that said, we are prepared to address trouble with tooth loss during emergency dental treatment. If we are not able to save a dislodged tooth when you come in for urgent care, we can start the process of planning restorative work with an implant-held restoration. This kind of quick response can help you avoid the problems that tooth loss tends to create over time.
