An individual who hopes to simply ignore the way tooth loss affects their life can quickly learn just how frustrating this problem is. In addition to finding yourself shy about showing off your smile, you can grow uncomfortable with the way your incomplete smile requires you to change your approach to biting and chewing food, or even the way you speak. At our Katy, TX dentist’s office, we can meet with you to discuss the benefits that come with using dental implants to help restore your smile. When dental implants are involved, restorative dental treatment can lead to cosmetic benefits as well as functional support for individuals who have suffered tooth loss. In addition to using dental implants to hold individual restorations, these posts can be effective at holding larger appliances.
Dental Implants Can Provide Permanent Support For A Prosthetic Appliance
Dental implants make it possible to maintain permanent support for a restoration meant to act in place of your lost tooth, or lost teeth. When you have implant support for a restoration, you can find it easier to trust that your restored smile will remain in good condition, and that it can provide you with enough functional support to return to natural biting and chewing.
What Kind Of Restoration Can A Dental Implant Hold?
Our practice can help you restore a single missing tooth with implant support, or we can discuss providing you with a dental implant-held denture. A single tooth held by an implant can deliver better support to neighboring teeth, offer more stability when you bite and chew, and offer up support without requiring work on neighboring teeth. An implant-held denture can be more reliable for biting and chewing, giving them an exciting practical advantage, and they can also be more comfortable while you bite and chew. In order to make your smile care more convenient, we can provide All-On-4 implant dentures, which limit the number of implants needed to hold a full dental arch replacement.
Restoring Your Smile Can Help With More Than Just Your Appearance
Did you know that tooth loss can create a problem for your jawbone? Without the roots of teeth providing stimulation, the bone can deteriorate over time, which can change both your appearance and oral health for the worse. When dental implants are used for restorative care, a person’s prosthetic appliances can create stimulation that once again protects your jaw from deterioration.
