Fortunately, advances in dental technology and processes have been able to make the experience much more straight-forward and comfortable to endure. Indeed, implant dentistry can address a wide array of loss, and our team is ready to help. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon would like to discuss the many ways implants can complete your smile, whether you are experiencing a single missing structure or several.

Restoring Your Function

One of the major hindrances that a missing structure can cause is a decrease in your oral function. Take, for instance, the versatility of a tooth. Each one is comprised of a crown that works to help you perform tasks such as biting, chewing, and eating, as well as a root that is embedded into the jaw bone with a secure connection, allowing your crown to absorb the pressure of your bite.

If even a single tooth is compromised, your entire function is impacted. The pressure of your bite is evenly distributed among teeth, and if one fails to perform as needed, your bite will readjust to accommodate the gap. This inevitably leads to strain, difficulty in biting, chewing, and eating, and even issues with enunciation. To combat this, an implant can help!

Varying Degrees of Tooth Loss

A dental implant consists of a biocompatible titanium post that is inserted into the jaw. Here, it can function as an artificial root that allows your new restoration to once again absorb the pressure of your bite. What’s more, the material used to create the crown is highly lifelike, meaning you can enjoy a full and complete smile.

In addition to addressing a single structure, our team can create an implant-retained bridge or even partial or full denture to help not only complete your appearance, but provide full-coverage and functional rehabilitation as well. Contact our office for a free consultation to learn more about the process and what your options are moving forward.

Completing Your Appearance

In the past, anxiety often accompanied the placement of a dental implant for fear that the process would be painful or traumatizing, and that the restoration would be entirely noticeable. Fortunately, you will not have to worry about these concerns at our office. We utilize an advanced method to make your procedure as minimally invasive as possible. What’s more, your custom crown is crafted in-office to closely mimic your teeth’s natural shape, texture, and even hue.
