When you lose a tooth, or several, then a series of complications could arise that impact the appearance, function, and health of your smile. To preserve not only your smile, but your facial structure as well, you may benefit from dental implant placement. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, dentist explains how we plan and guide the placement of one or more dental implants.
The Dangers of Tooth Loss and the Benefits of Implants
Tooth loss could mean substantial changes to the health and stability of your smile. Losing even one tooth could mean a higher risk of misalignment, and also bite imbalance and jaw joint strain. Losing several means that as the body suspends the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone, and the jawbone begins to lose mass and density. Over time, this complication means further tooth loss and a prematurely aged appearance. However, dental implants are inserted into the jawbone via oral surgery, where they act as new roots. Being created from titanium, a biocompatible material, they support one or more new teeth that can last decades, while also stimulating the growth of bone tissue.
Planning the Process
We use one-piece implant posts and guide the entire process with advanced technology. Choosing the right position for your new roots means ensuring they can stimulate the growth of bone tissue, while also supporting a tooth or prosthetic, and the daily bite forces these new teeth must endure. We carefully examine your smile with advanced digital technology, assessing the factors behind your tooth loss and the current state of your jawbone. From there, we can plan the process of returning your smile to optimal health, function, and beauty.
Guiding the Placement
We will offer IV sedation to help you enter a state of deep calm and relaxation. The next step involves employing advanced technology to guide the placement process, ensuring we insert your new roots with precision and accuracy. Afterward, we can move forward with the placement of a crown, bridge or denture to complete the process and help you on the road toward a whole and beautiful new smile. We then preserve your jawbone, reduce the risk of implant failure, and allow you to smile with confidence once more.
