A concern that many individuals face when receiving dental implants involves how realistic they will appear. Indeed, nobody wants to lose a natural tooth, but receiving treatment that is noticeable and distracting, such as a solid metal artificial tooth, can be enough to discourage patients from seeking treatment in the first place. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon details the science behind creating your custom crown restoration, and how our in-house lab and equipment can help make your restoration in a highly-lifelike and realistic manner.
Why Implants are Necessary
It goes without saying that a lost structure can significantly impact your self-confidence, as the gap left behind is extremely noticeable. What’s more? The functional complications that arise from one or more missing teeth will lead to troubles performing day-to-day tasks, including biting, chewing, and eating.
Your smile consists of more than just teeth, and in fact, your structures work together with your jaw in order to properly absorb the pressure of your bite. When as little as one structure is no longer present, the rest of your structures must strain to accommodate the missing tooth. This can lead to unnecessary tension, stress, and even impacts your smile’s function. Because of this, an implant can offer a functional solution.
Another complication that arises from lost teeth involves the gradual degradation of your jaw. You see, the tooth root is embedded in the jaw securely to help your structure absorb the pressure of your bite. Simultaneously the root helps stimulate the bone and helps keep it strong. Without a present root, your bone is no longer stimulated and can gradually wear with time. To learn more about this process, reach out to our team today.
