Despite the stigma, adult tooth loss should not be as traumatic of an experience as many make it out to be. In fact, advanced dental technology and innovative practices have been utilized to make the process much more straight-forward and convenient for recovery time, overall function, and more. With an experienced team that has access to a fully-functional lab in-house, the process has become much more streamlined to the point of even providing extractions or post placements in a single day. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX dentist will discuss how strategic placement can make for optimal results when it comes to your new restoration.
Restoring Function More Realistically
For some time, the only option to replace your teeth consisted of dentures that were secured with an adhesive paste, and while it worked for purposes of eating, it certainly was not the most optimal option. The reason behind this, is because adhesive-secured dentures are missing a major factor that contributes to overall bite function, and that is the utilization of a root.
Every tooth is comprised of two main parts – the crown and the root. The root functions as an anchor, embedded securely beneath the gum line in the jaw bone and allowing your crown to absorb the pressure of your bite. Without a root, your bite will perform sub-optimally at best, making tasks such as biting, chewing, and even enunciating difficult. A dental implant, however, is the only restorative solution to missing teeth that takes this concern into account by functioning as an artificial root itself. This not only allows function to resume almost as good as normal, but allows the restoration to absorb the pressure of a standard bite, offering a permanent solution.
A More Efficient Process
In addition to restored function, dental implant placements have come a long way as far as extensive treatment goes. Indeed, advanced technology has made to process of placing a biocompatible post much more strategic so as to optimize function, comfort, recovery, and more. Close attention is paid to the area and angle at which the post will be placed, and consideration of jaw bone structure and density, tooth migration, and more must be taken into account. With advanced digital imaging and diagnostics, your new restoration can be placed in such a way to increase levels of comfort, especially during recovery, and function.
