Losing a tooth can mean losing the ability to comfortably smile, bite, and chew. The experience can be a frustrating one, and it can lead to embarrassment. While the experience of losing teeth can be difficult, you should know that your Katy, TX dentist is able to help you regain your full smile while also improving your dental function. Our practice can work with you on restoring missing teeth with restorations held in place by dental implants. With implants in place, you can enjoy prosthetic work that remains permanently in place, supports better biting and chewing, and helps to sustain the health of your jawbone.
An Incomplete Smile Can Be A Functional And Cosmetic Concern
There are several issues that can affect you after losing a tooth. When it comes to the cosmetic impact of this experience, placement certainly is a factor. While a molar’s absence can be difficult to notice, a visible gap at the front of your smile can be difficult to hide. With that said, the loss of any tooth can create certain difficulties that you should know about. Neighboring teeth around a gap are more vulnerable to being lost because they have less support. You can find it difficult to bite and chew in a way that feels natural, which can lead to daily discomforts. Without the ability to practice a natural, even bite, you may start to experience pain from TMJ disorder.
Planning A Procedure To Restore Your Full Smile
By placing a dental implant-held crown in a space where your tooth was lost, we can give you important cosmetic and functional support. The implant-held dental crown can close a gap in your smile, giving you renewed confidence in your appearance. The implant itself acts the way a tooth root would to keep your restoration in position, and to support neighboring roots. It can also create stimulation in your jawbone to signal for the delivery of nutrients to the bone, which helps you avoid density loss over time.
