How Do Dental Implants Help People?

When you want to take on problems with tooth loss, how much can you realistically expect prosthetic treatment to do for you? Will you be able to restore more than just your smile? How comfortable will you feel when you bite and chew with your restoration? At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we are ready to help you recover your complete smile by addressing tooth loss. One way we can do this is by providing a dental implant-held restoration. Through this work, we provide durable restorations that kind of lasting support that can make them feel more natural and give you more confidence in biting and chewing tougher foods.

See Real Benefits From Prosthetic Dentistry

You should see lasting benefits from prosthetic dental work. When you arrange treatment to restore your incomplete smile, you can regain confidence in your ability to bite and chew without the need to work around your gap. Regaining better bite movement puts less strain on your jaw joints and muscles, and it will help you more evenly distribute the friction that is created when you bite and chew. You can also offer more stability to teeth at either side of a gap. What this means is that you effectively lower your risk for losing these teeth and more over time.

Using An Implant-Held Appliance To Restore Your Full Smile

An implant-held dental restoration will be permanently secured. The arrangement can actually mimic the support afforded to teeth by their roots—just as the roots keep a natural tooth held to the jawbone, the implant offers a secure and stable hold against the bone. It can even take on the responsibility of stimulating the bone when you bite and chew, something that will help you preserve it and avoid losing density in the bone. To make sure you have the right support over time, we will take close measurements to ensure that your implant is in just the right position to offer the most security possible.

We Can Also Arrange Treatment With A Dental Bridge

You have another option if you want to permanently support a restoration. With a dental bridge, we can keep a smile gap closed without the need to perform oral surgery. Bridges stay in place thanks to a pair of dental crowns that cap teeth at either side of your gap.
