Did you have to give up your favorite meal of steak and potatoes when you lost a tooth? Are even apples difficult to consume, now that you are dealing with an incomplete smile? If so, don’t continue to settle for a smile that no longer functions as well as it should, much less one that can be embarrassing to show off. Modern dental prostheses make it possible to complete a smile securely, restoring not only the comfort of a healthy smile, but the confidence that comes with a beautiful one, as well.
Enjoy Confidence with a Stable Prostheses
While there are a number of prostheses available to help complete a smile, a dental implant is considered the most stable and secure. That is because it is the only prostheses that helps to replace both a missing tooth and its corresponding root. This helps to hold a replacement tooth firmly in place, but it also helps to nourish the jaw as you chew.
In this way, an implant can help to prevent shrinkage of the jaw, which often occurs after tooth loss.
Consider Updating an Existing Prostheses
Recent loss of a tooth isn’t the only reason to consider getting a modern dental prostheses like an implant. If you are unhappy with an existing prostheses you should also consider how a dental implant could offer you more stability.
Just keep in mind that dental implants require oral surgery to place the mimic tooth root, so your mouth must be healthy enough to support this procedure. A consultation with your restorative dentist is the best way to determine if your smile can support a dental implant.
