Do You Need a Modern Dental Prostheses?
Posted on April 11th, 2017
Are you tired of trying, in vain, to hide your smile because of the insecurity adult tooth loss has caused? Tired of avoiding some of your favorite foods, because you know they will be difficult to chew while missing teeth, or even with an ill-fitting denture? Prosthetic dentistry makes it possible to address tooth loss with beautiful and restorative results, so if you find yourself in need of a replacement tooth or even several, why not talk to your dentist about how a modern prostheses could help improve your smile?
Don’t Settle for An Incomplete or Poorly Functioning Smile
While missing teeth might initially seem like a purely cosmetic problem, they can actually create a number of functional issues, as well. Not only is it harder to chew when teeth are missing, but it can also create problems for the remaining teeth. When a gap is created by tooth loss or extraction, remaining teeth often try to shift to fill the gap that was created. A prosthetic tooth can help to prevent this.
Enjoy Security and Confidence with a Prostheses
Modern prosthetic options focus on completing the smile cosmetically and functionally, with natural-looking and comfortable results. Dental bridges, for instance, use crowns affixed to remaining teeth in order to hold replacement tooth firmly in place. Dental implants are even more secure and permanent solutions, thanks to the mimic tooth root, which is surgically placed into the jaw. Both can be used with single replacement teeth, partial or full dentures, to create added security.
