Address Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

People who are missing teeth may smile less and even change the way they speak in order to cover up absences. For many, this will be enough to justify taking action through the placement of a dental prosthetic; however, tooth loss doesn’t only affect your smile. You can also struggle to bite and chew comfortably. Over time, you may experience problems with your jaw. Your compromised bite could lead to TMJ issues, which can hurt your quality of life. You can also begin to lose mass in your jawbone. To improve your smile, and protect your jaw, your dentist can talk to you about dental implants.

Using Implants Will Allow You To Stop Jawbone Resorption

Jawbone resorption refers to a loss of mass in your jawbone, a problem that will develop if you leave tooth loss unaddressed. Because the roots of your teeth are necessary for keeping your jaw stimulated and for ensuring proper blood flow, their absence means your oral health will suffer. Dental implants offer you a chance to fix this because they can actually stimulate your jawbone to return proper blood flow.

Other Benefits To Implant-Supported Dental Prosthetics

Implant-supported prosthetics are stable enough to be used for biting and chewing. The presence of implants can actually stop future movement of remaining teeth as they will occupy space near neighboring roots and keep them from shifting.

The Benefits of a CEREC Dental Crown

One big benefit to your dentist having CEREC technology is convenience. You will be able to have your permanent restoration placed on a problem tooth after just one visit! If you need treatment for a serious cavity, or if you come in with an injured tooth, you can have the permanent protection needed in less time. CEREC crowns are also popular for their appearance. Because they are made with life-like dental ceramic, so the crowns produced with this technology will look like natural teeth.

CEREC technology places everything needed to construct your crown in your dentist’s office. Every necessary step – the taking of measurements, the design of your crown, and its construction – can all be taken care of in one visit.

In addition to being more convenient for patients, CEREC crowns are also made to look like natural teeth. This helps you avoid any issues with your restoration negatively impacting how you look.

CEREC technology can also produce a permanent dental crown. This means you will have important dental support that can last for many years.
