After the loss of just one tooth, you can experience significant problems with your oral health and appearance. That lone gap in your smile is enough to permanently alter your bite. An absence also makes you more likely to lose more teeth, and it can result in problems with your jaw health. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office is prepared to help you take on issues with poor dental health linked to tooth loss. By making plans to restore your smile through implant dentistry, we can offer important cosmetic and functional benefits. We can also provide continued support so that you can defend yourself against future threats and remain confident in the way you look.
Reasons To Take Action And Replace A Lost Tooth
If you put off treatment to restore your incomplete smile, you can actually leave yourself vulnerable to more difficulties than you realize. The extra effort to work around applying bite pressure at the site where tooth loss occurred can tax your jaw joints and muscles. Your change can also hurt you by making you overuse remaining teeth, which can cause them to wear down and be more vulnerable to problems. Another concern is that any teeth next to a gap have less support, which means they are more likely to loosen and become lost themselves.
Planning Work That Involves The Placement And Restoration Of A Dental Implant
We can work closely with an oral surgeon to ensure your dental implant is successfully placed. When the implant itself is set in its appropriate position, your surrounding bone tissues will fuse to it while healing. When you are recovered, you can return to our practice to have your permanent dental crown or larger appliance set in place.
Before moving forward with the work of replacing your lost tooth, we will provide an important preliminary review. Beyond confirming that you are ready to move forward with care, this enables us to determine the specific location and angle for your implant.
Keeping Up With Smile Care After Prosthetic Dental Work Takes Place
Whether you have gone through prosthetic dental work, cosmetic dental services, or have no history of professional treatment for your smile, you should keep up with regular exams. Preventive dental care will help you preserve your teeth as well as any restorations that you have received. Without these appointments, you are more vulnerable to the onset of problems and more likely to have them grow in severity before you are able to receive treatment.
