Discovering The Benefits Of Implant Dentistry

After you lose teeth, you may assume that there are certain issues that you will not be able to resolve. Even if you receive a dental prosthetic, will you feel comfortable using it to bite and chew? Can you rely on it to keep neighboring teeth safe? What can prosthetic work really do for your oral health? At our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office, we can talk to you about using a dental implant, or multiple implants to hold a larger restoration, Through the use of implants in restorative treatment, we can make it easier for you to rely on a prosthetic appliance to support your bite, and you can count on it to support your overall oral health.

Are You Ready To Do Something About Tooth Loss?

Whether you lose one tooth or have an entire row missing, your incomplete smile can affect more than just the way you look. We rely on all of our teeth to contribute to our biting and chewing practices. Just a single gap can make it more difficult for you to maintain a natural bite. In time, you can put stress on your jaw, and you can overwork certain teeth and experience more issues with them. Another concern is jawbone deterioration, which can occur when teeth roots are absent. With implant dentistry, we can address these different concerns. We can even recommend this service as a way to prevent jawbone deterioration, something that other treatment approaches cannot address.

What To Expect From Implant Placement And Restoration

An implant is placed directly in your jawbone, where it will take up the space where a tooth’s roots were once held. To make sure yours is put in the right place, we will do detailed preparatory work. After the placement takes place, you will wait to receive your restoration while you recover. The healing process is important—because your implant is made from biocompatible titanium, your surrounding jawbone tissues will fuse to it. After this process concludes, you will have your permanent appliance put in place!

What You Can Look Forward To After Treatment

After you finish treatment to fully restore your smile, you can marvel at how dependable your implant-held restoration is. It can absorb bite pressure, and it can help keep neighboring teeth stable. The stimulation created when you use your prosthetic can even help you prevent difficulties with lost jawbone mass! During regular dental exams, we can keep you updated about the state of your restoration, and about your overall oral health.
