Is Tooth Loss Going To Affect My Daily Life?

How will your daily life be affected when you lose teeth? One problem will be how you can be self-conscious about your appearance. You can also suffer difficulties when you attempt to bite and chew. Of course, over time, there are problems that can build up and create major oral health difficulties. You may lose more teeth, and experience problems with your jaw joints. Patients who do not take care of tooth loss can suffer jawbone resorption, which will create problems with your appearance, and jaw support. The sooner you take action against tooth loss, the sooner you can avoid these difficulties. With a dental implant, you can enjoy great support for your restoration, and prevent jawbone resorption.

The Right Prosthetic Solution Can Improve Dental Function, And Your Smile

One thing you can look forward to with your prosthetic is the confidence you regain in your smile. With dental implants, you can also count on your restoration to help you bite and chew with greater ease. Patients without implants can lose support in their jawbone due to a deterioration of the bone. When they are in place, implants can create stimulation that sustains proper blood flow to your jaw.

What If I Am Not Approved For Dental Implants?

Many patients are approved for dental implants to hold their prosthetic in place. They offer versatile support, as they will be able to support single tooth restorations, and larger prosthetics, including dentures. Your age will not necessarily prevent you from receiving implants, but issues that make you a risk for surgery will impact your candidacy. The condition of your jaw is also a problem, but you can receive treatment to help create more support if you have suffered deterioration. Active gum disease will have to be treated before you can have your implants placed.
