Restoring your smile after tooth loss may seem daunting. If you have lost multiple teeth, or if you have concerns about the stability of a dental prosthetic, you may feel that you can only hope for a cosmetic improvement after addressing smile gaps. What you should know is that dental implants can help you enjoy more benefits from prosthetic work. Your Prairie Village, KS dentist can talk to you about holding your restoration more securely by affixing it to an implant that has been set in your jawbone. This arrangement means you can enjoy functional and cosmetic advantages. You can also go on to enjoy lasting support for the health of your jaw, which can be vulnerable to deterioration when you lose teeth.
How Extra Support For Your Prosthetic Restoration Can Improve Your Dental Health
Trying to bite and chew food with an incomplete set of teeth can become an exercise in frustration, especially if you have multiple gaps. In time, this can lead to a reduction in your variety of food options, and put a strain on your jaw joints. With dental implants in place to hold individual dental crowns, or to secure a dental bridge or denture, you can have an easier time practicing dental functions like biting, chewing, and speaking.
What Can I Do To Restore The Look Of My Smile If I Have Oral Health Issues?
With a modern restoration, you can address the visible effects of tooth loss. Your prosthetic can mimic the look of your natural teeth, and provide you with more confidence in your smile. Dental implants offer more than just a chance to fill in a smile that has been incomplete. This arrangement can also help you maintain the health of your jawbone, so that it does not deteriorate over time due to tooth loss.
