Is it time for you to do something about tooth loss? The longer you wait to address problems with a missing tooth, or with multiple missing teeth, the more likely you are to start dealing with complications from tooth loss. A single missing tooth makes you more likely to suffer more losses. You also have to worry about problems like jawbone deterioration and issues with your bite function if your smile is not complete. Our Riverside, CA dental office is ready to meet with you and discuss the benefits of implant dentistry for those impacted by tooth loss. We can arrange the necessary oral surgery to place an implant (or implants), an important step in a larger plan to make your smile full again!
Ignoring Tooth Loss Can Lead To Serious Consequences
There are several issues with tooth loss that you have to worry about. One of the first and most noticeable issues is the effect on your smile. Simply put, it can be difficult to feel confident when you have a visible gap between teeth. You can also struggle with issues that impact your bite function if your smile is incomplete. If you are missing several teeth, you can reach a point where your diet is limited, which can lead to more health risks. Losing more teeth also leads to more serious concerns about jawbone deterioration.
How Dental Implants Fit Into Restorative Treatment Plans
With dental implants, we can give you more confidence in your bite, provide more comfortable restorations, and even protect you against jawbone deterioration! We can bring patients with missing teeth to our practice to undergo an evaluation and start planning their prosthetic dental work. We can make plans to place a single implant, or use multiple implants if we need to support a denture, or another larger restoration. After your implants are placed, and you have time to heal, you can see us against to have a restoration set in position.
Long-Term Benefits Of A Fully Restored Smile
Being able to bite and chew without discomfort means enjoying a wider and healthier range of foods. It also means receiving support against jawbone deterioration, as your implants will stimulate the surrounding bone tissues, sending nutrients to the area to provide support. Of course, there is another exciting benefit to implant-held restorations – they can make your smile appear more youthful and attractive!
