When was the last time you were actually able to sit down with your family, and enjoy your meal, without worrying about how you would chew effectively or even comfortably? For adults who have suffered from tooth loss, even simple acts like sitting down to dinner, can begin to cause increasing anxiety. Fortunately, modern prostheses like dental implants are designed to help bring comfort, both physical and emotional, to patients who are suffering from incomplete smiles. Could a dental implant be a great solution for you?
Struggling with an Incomplete Smile, or an Ill-fitting Dental Prostheses?
Incomplete smiles are not the only reason people find themselves struggling to chew confidently after tooth loss. In many cases, ill-fitting or uncomfortable dental prostheses can be just as frustrating.
Implants can help patients suffering from incomplete smiles, or those with ill-fitting dentures, by providing a more stable and secure smile solution.
Enjoy Comfort and Confidence with a Dental Implant
Dental implants are unique in that they are the only form of prostheses that can help to replace a missing tooth and the root that once held it in place. They accomplish this through the use of mimic tooth roots, which are made from biocompatible titanium. Once placed within the jaw, this mimic root can then act as a permanent and stable base on which a replacement tooth, even a dental bridge, can be permanently affixed.
This mimic root does more than just provide stability for the replacement tooth, though. It also acts to supply nutrients to the jaw, as one chews, which can help to prevent shrinkage of the jaw over time, one of the common and troubling side effects of tooth loss.
