If you continue to let that gap in your smile remain open, you can experience steadily worsening oral health issues that are linked to your tooth loss. You might not realize it, but your teeth roots play an important role in preserving the health and density of your jawbone. Losing teeth means losing out on stimulation that keeps the bone from losing mass. The absence of one tooth also makes further losses more likely because neighbors go without important support. At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, we can address the impact that loss of a tooth has on your smile and well-being. Through implant dentistry, we can help you enjoy better bite support and oral health while you also enjoy the cosmetic benefits of a secure, lifelike prosthetic restoration!
What Should You Expect From Dental Implant-Held Restorations?
By using a dental implant to hold a replacement tooth, you can have an easier time biting, chewing, and speaking without worrying that your restoration will loosen or fall out of place. This arrangement makes it possible for your restoration to stay in position without the need to modify neighboring teeth, a requirement during the placement of a dental bridge. The placement of a dental implant has several benefits that are not available with other approaches to prosthetic work. One advantage is that the implant itself helps stabilize neighboring teeth roots. Another is that it stimulates the surrounding jawbone tissues, which is necessary to sustain the flow of nutrients to the bone.
Arranging Treatment To Restore Your Incomplete Smile
Through treatment to restore your full smile, we can help you speak, eat, and smile with renewed confidence and comfort. An implant is surgically placed after care is taken to determine the right angle and location of placement. A preliminary review determines this and lets us confirm that you are a good candidate for treatment. Once you complete your recovery after placement, a custom dental crown is secured to the post, which closes the gap in your smile.
We Can Help You Keep Your Smile Healthy After Prosthetic Treatment
After you complete prosthetic dental work, you should feel comfortable with your appearance and oral health. Of course, you will need to keep up with good oral hygiene for your prosthetic as well as your remaining natural teeth. We can help with this by providing general dental appointments where your smile is cleaned and evaluated. This gives us opportunities to spot early signs of trouble and make sure that they are addressed.
