If your smile is missing just one tooth, you can have problems with your oral health and appearance that are difficult to ignore. Dealing with tooth loss effectively calls for treatment that can address the impact of this issue on your bite function, your smile, and your overall oral health. Fortunately, these different concerns can be addressed effectively with a dental implant-held restoration. At our West Allis, WI dental practice, we can make arrangements to restore an implant and give you back your complete smile. With this work complete, you can marvel at how comfortable you feel with your prosthetic, how much it improves your dental function, and how it positively changes your quality of life.
The Issues Created By Tooth Loss
Ignoring tooth loss means more than just ignoring a glaring smile flaw. Your gap will leave you with less confidence in your bite function. What this means is that you can have a more difficult time biting and chewing certain foods, and that you will be more likely to change your jaw movement in a way that raises your risk for TMJ problems. You also need to worry about jawbone deterioration and further tooth loss as a result of your problem. The good news is that these are concerns that can be managed—by having a prosthetic restoration secured with an implant, you can improve your oral health, bite support, and appearance!
Have Your Dental Implant Restored With A Durable And Lifelike Prosthetic
We can meet with you to confirm your eligibility for implant placement and help you set up your placement procedure. Our practice is here to help when you need a restoration secured on one post (or several). By securing your dental crown, bridge, or denture, we can officially close the empty space left in your smile. What this also does is provide renewed bite support, which helps you once again apply and release pressure in a natural and even fashion. Over time, there are added advantages, as your implant will help support neighboring teeth and also stimulate your jawbone to keep it healthy.
Keeping Up With Smile Care After Your Dental Work Is Complete
Through the completion of your prosthetic dental work, we can give you back your confidence in the way you look. Once this is done, we can provide continued support for your oral health by regularly reviewing your teeth, gums, and appliance during routine dental exams. Just as you should take care to protect your natural teeth, you should put in the work to ensure that your smile remains healthy by protecting prosthetic appliances.
