When was the last time you sat down with family, to enjoy a meal, and were actually able to chew comfortably and confidently there at the table with them? Have you started to avoid meals, altogether, because of the discomfort or embarrassment you feel, all because of an incomplete smile or an awkward dental prostheses? Adult tooth loss can be a frightening and frustrating experience, but it doesn’t have to be the end of your smile as you knew it. Modern dental prostheses make it possible to complete your smile both functionally and cosmetically. And that means you can do more than cope with tooth loss; you can rebound from it, beautifully!
Don’t Settle for an Incomplete Smile, or an Ill-fitting Denture
Whether you have lost a single tooth or several, there is no reason to settle where your smile is concerned. Missing teeth can lead to alignment problems, difficulty chewing, jaw pain, and other issues. This is why dentists urge patients to schedule a prosthetic consultation after tooth loss or an extraction.
Enjoy the Comfort and Confidence an Implant Can Bring
While dentures are one way to address tooth loss, many patients find that they can shift uncomfortably, particularly during chewing. Dental bridges help to address this, by using dental crowns affixed to remaining teeth to provided added stability to the prostheses.
That said, dental implants are considered the most permanent and secure option for completing a smile, because they are the only prostheses that involves surgically placing a base, that acts to mimic the role of a healthy tooth root.
