Have you recently lost one or more of your teeth? If so, you know the frustration of adjusting to life with this condition. As you lose your teeth, everyday activities like speaking and eating become more difficult. Your appearance can change radically as well, as our facial muscles rely on our teeth to maintain their proper volume. You may lose height in your face as your cheeks sink inward giving a more aged look.
At your Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office, we can help you secure a restoration for your advanced tooth loss. Modern techniques allow us to restore multiple teeth at once to provide valuable support to your bite. From an individual implant to a set of full dentures, we customize your treatment to best enhance your smile and return the capabilities you enjoyed before tooth loss.
The Consequences Of Losing Your Teeth
Whenever you lose a single tooth, you increase the odds of losing additional teeth as your open socket removes stability holding neighboring teeth in place. Left untreated, your teeth begin to drift and misalign your smile. Problems with your alignment can increase the wear and tear on your remaining teeth and cause the onset of TMJ disorder. As you lose additional teeth, the problem may appear insurmountable and cause you to feel helpless towards the difficulties of dental loss.
By seeking the placement of dental implant support, you can enjoy the benefits of larger appliances that restore multiple teeth after experiencing advanced loss. With the right type of implants, you may even place a full set of dentures to return your smile!
How Dental Implants Hold Your Denture In Place
Your dentist can provide implants to treat the loss of a single tooth all the way to your entire mouth. By inserting a set of titanium rods into your jawbone, you can attach a restorative appliance to recreate the appearance and function of a natural tooth. While dental crowns replace a single missing tooth, we can also place a dental arch when replacing an entire row of teeth. We place your prosthetic after you heal from implantation. During this process, the tissues of your jaw fuse to the titanium rod to secure it in place for years to come. When you properly care for your implant, you can expect it to last your entire lifetime!
