Bringing Your Smile Back After Significant Tooth Loss

If you have suffered the loss of several teeth, or if you have experienced a total loss of your upper or lower row of teeth, it can feel like your smile is permanently lost. What you should know is that you can see a big improvement in your appearance, and in your dental function, with the right dental prosthetic. A custom set of partial dentures can be made to fill in gaps between your remaining teeth. A full denture can be constructed if you need to replace a full row of teeth. Many patients will have these prosthetics secured thanks to dental implants, which will allow you to keep your restoration permanently supported.

What Can Happen If Tooth Loss Remains Unaddressed?

Your smile is not the only thing you have to worry about when you have unaddressed tooth loss. Depending on the nature of your tooth loss, you may already be well aware of how difficult standard jaw functions can be. You should know that any tooth next to a gap will face greater odds of being lost. You also need to be concerned with jaw problems created by a compromised bite. Over time, a person with missing teeth can experience a deterioration of their jawbone. This takes place because the roots of your teeth are responsible for creating stimulation that encourages the flow of blood, which delivers needed nutrients.

Having Dental Implants Put In Place To Hold Dentures

Many patients will choose to have implants placed, so that they have lasting support for the prosthetic they receive. If you elect to have implants placed, it can increase the comfort and function of your partial or full dentures. Implants also offer support that can prevent jawbone deterioration.
