Restorative dental work addresses problems that affect your health and often negatively affect your appearance, too. One serious issue that we can help you address is a problem with tooth loss, something that can seriously impact your smile, oral health, and bite function. You can come to our Irving, TX dental office to learn what role dental implants can play in replacing a lost tooth, or lost teeth. Implant dentistry makes it possible for us to provide permanent restorations, as well as better support for neighboring teeth and your jawbone. Remember that the longer you wait to address this issue, the more likely you are to experience oral health complications.

Tooth Loss Can Have A Big Impact On Your Smile And Oral Health

A visible gap in your smile can be a significant source of embarrassment for you, and it can be the reason you no longer feel comfortable biting and chewing certain foods. A missing tooth also makes you more vulnerable to new problems, as neighboring teeth enjoy less support, so they can loosen or become lost over time. Another concern is that tooth loss robs your jawbone of support. When you bite and chew, you create stimulation that triggers the movement of nutrients to the bone, keeping it healthy over time.

Discussing The Benefits Of Dental Implants

As you start to review your options for restoring your full smile, you can find yourself intrigued by what dental implants add to your treatment experience. The implants themselves are not the replacement teeth. These small titanium posts act more like artificial roots, as they keep restorations held securely against the bone. This mimics the kind of support that your natural teeth have thanks to their roots. Over time, using your prosthetic for support when you bite and chew will actually benefit your jaw health in addition to making these actions more comfortable, as an implant provides the stimulation you lose when a tooth is lost.

What If I Need To Replace Multiple Teeth?

We can discuss implant dentistry and its ability to help you if you need to replace multiple teeth. We can discuss the benefit of using multiple implants to hold several restorations, or one larger appliance. This approach can lead to a stunning smile transformation in less time than you anticipate, and it can also produce important benefits for your bite function.
