When a person starts to lose teeth, their confidence, bite function, and overall oral health can suffer negative consequences. Fortunately, the right restorative dental work can address all of these concerns! At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, patients who want to replace missing teeth can learn about the benefits that dental implants provide. Implants act as artificial roots to hold lifelike restorations in position. While one implant can hold one dental crown to address an isolated problem with tooth loss, multiple implants can be put in place to hold larger restorations. In addition to helping you bite, chew, and smile with more confidence, implants can protect you by stimulating your jawbone and keeping it safe from deterioration.

Your Prosthetic Work Can Change More Than Your Smile

Tooth loss can affect your appearance dramatically, and that can lead to a sizable dip in your overall confidence. As concerning as this can be, it is only one of several issues created by this particular dental problem. Your ability to bite and chew can be negatively affected by a single missing tooth. Over time, this can lead to the overuse of your teeth that remain. It can also create problems with jaw pain and stiffness.

One problem that can develop gradually after tooth loss is jawbone deterioration. This occurs because when the roots of teeth are no longer present to provide stimulation. This can hurt the quality of your smile, and it can also have an unwelcome impact on your oral health.

The Role Dental Implants Play In Restoring Your Oral Health

Dental implants help to hold a replacement tooth in position, plus they provide stability for teeth on either side of that restoration. The implant is set directly into your jawbone, and it will give a form of support that imitates the stability a natural tooth’s roots provide. Through proper planning, we can make arrangements to secure a larger restoration with a series of carefully arranged implant posts.

How Implants Help With The Loss Of Multiple Teeth

After losing multiple teeth, you may worry that your options for restorative dentistry are either limited, or likely to be a lengthy process. With our ability to hold a larger restoration with a series of implants, we can reduce the time and work required to give you back your full smile! These options include the placement of all-on-4 implant dentures. A full denture can be set in position permanently with just four posts, limiting the work needed and the amount of support demanded from your jawbone.
