Are Implants Effective At Addressing Advanced Tooth Loss?

When a person arranges prosthetic work to address the loss of one tooth, they may plan to have their restoration secured by a dental implant. Implants offer impressive benefits for patients who require prosthetic dental work, as they effectively take on roles that a natural tooth root performs, and improve the stability of your replacement tooth. What you should know is that implants are also effective at holding larger restorations in place. In fact, your Katy, TX dentist can even arrange for you to enjoy implant support for your denture, thanks to All-On-4 dental implants. With four strategically placed implants, you can count on great support for a full prosthetic arch!

All-On-4 Implant Dentures Allow You To Keep Your Denture Stable

Without implant support, patients with dentures can find that their appliance offers less support for biting and chewing than they might like. They can also experience issues with their denture feeling insecure, particularly after dealing with the loss of mass in their jawbone, something that will occur after tooth loss. With All-On-4 dental implants, you can have a permanently secured denture. You can find this arrangement more comfortable, and you can preserve the health of your jaw over time thanks to the stimulation created by these implants.

What Should I Know About Dental Implants?

Implants give people with tooth loss more support for their restorations, which will allow them to bite, chew, and speak with more comfort. While people often use implants to hold individual crowns, it is possible to use them to hold larger restorations, including dentures. In addition to improving your dental function, your implants can stimulate your jawbone when you bite and chew. This stimulation, also created by the roots of teeth, sustains a flow of nutrients needed to keep the bone in good health.

Life With Your Restored Smile

The goal when a patient undergoes restorative dental work of any kind is to give them renewed confidence in their smile, and their dental function. Your lifelike, implant-held restoration can make you appear younger and healthier, while giving you back the smile you remember from before you experienced tooth loss. They also keep prosthetic appliances stable enough to let you bite and chew with more confidence, so you can enjoy a wider variety of foods.
