In fact, an implant means much more than just completing your smile, but takes into consideration your oral function and structural integrity as well. Indeed, when a person loses one or more teeth, his or her smile is affected in a number of ways. Fortunately, prosthodontics can offer a lifelike solution. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon explores the benefits of implant-secured dentures, and how you can enjoy much more than just a complete smile.

Why Replace Lost Teeth?

For many adults, tooth loss is a phenomenon that is not readily at the top of their list of concerns. Indeed, other factors such as picking up the kids from school, making it to work, and ensuring their family is fed take precedent. Throughout the busy hustle and bustle of everyday life, important considerations such as oral health can take a backseat too easily, and it is at this point when major complications start to arise.

When you fall short on your preventive dental routine, this opens the door for infection, decay, and a myriad of other concerns to come to wreak havoc on your grin. What’s more? Once a tooth becomes infected to the point it is compromised, you may have to face the possibility of having one or more structures extracted in order to prioritize your overall oral health.

Another issue that arises is that once you have lost a tooth to infection, your chances of losing other surrounding structures increase exponentially. For this reason and others, your dentist may recommend replacement via a dental implant. For more information about this process, reach out to our team today.

Functional Stability

Losing even one tooth is enough to impact your oral function. You see, your teeth are housed within the gums, and your roots are embedded in your jawbone. This allows your teeth to properly absorb the pressure of your bite. When one or more teeth are missing, your bite must adjust in order to accommodate the missing structures, and complications such as strain and difficulty in function arise.

To combat this concern, a dental bridge or denture set may help. This process involves strategically placing biocompatible implants so that once your partial or full denture is secured, it will be able to withstand the pressure of your bite.

Realistic Results

One major benefit that arises from custom implant-retained dentures is their ability to mimic natural teeth. Indeed, there is nothing worse than receiving treatment that is noticeable and bulky, and our team takes care to ensure quality treatment.
