How Dental Implants Impact Your Prosthetic Experience

Advancements in the field of restorative dentistry have helped individuals with significant oral health problems recover in impressive ways. You can be surprised by how modern prosthetic dental work can help you deal with tooth loss in a way that improves how you look, while also improving your dental function. Many patients have had great success with dental prostheses supported with dental implants. Implants provide a degree of stability that makes it easier to bite and chew with a restoration. Their presence also has benefits for your oral health because the stimulation they create in your jawbone can help you avoid a loss of bone mass. 

What To Expect When You Have Dental Implants Placed

Dental implants are inserted directly into your jawbone, where they will take up the space that was previously occupied by your tooth root. A specialist will provide this placement, as it requires oral surgery to complete. The healing process after your placement is important – while you recover, osseointegration takes place, meaning the bone fuses with the implant. Your dentist can then place your restoration, which will enjoy an outstanding degree of support.

The Functional Benefits Of Restoring Your Complete Smile

Restoring an incomplete smile with an implant-supported prosthetic (or a larger restoration supported by several dental implants) will help you feel more confident in your ability to bite and chew food. With superior stability, your prosthetic can be counted on to offer support when you bite and chew food. The presence of implant-supported restorations will also help because they keep neighboring teeth more secure, so you are less likely to lose additional teeth over time.

Feel Great About Your Appearance Thanks To A Life-Like Prosthetic

Dental implants make it easier to enjoy functional benefits from restorative work, but what will they do for your smile? An implant can hold a life-like dental crown in place, which will make your smile look natural. This means patients are enjoying great functional benefits, while also looking great!
