While you may find yourself adjusting to biting, chewing, and speaking in ways that feel natural after losing a tooth, will this problem actually become easier to manage? Unfortunately, the impact of tooth loss can actually worsen as time passes, as it makes you more likely to experience new problems, and more likely to lose more teeth. The good news is that these issues can be managed effectively when you have the right prosthetic dental work done. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can meet with patients who need to restore their incomplete smiles. Implant dentistry makes permanent support for restorations possible. Upon placing a prosthetic tooth on your implant, we can increase your confidence in your smile, improve your bite function, and help you avoid future oral health issues.
Has Poor Periodontal Health Led To Your Tooth Loss Issues?
Problems with your periodontal health lead to different threats for your smile, and for your general health. You can have a harder time avoiding problems because an infection causes damage to the tissues that support your teeth. In time, the loss of support can make extractions necessary, or cause them to fall out on their own. There are other concerns—for instance, bacteria that move through your bloodstream can create trouble for your overall health in different parts of your body. In addition to helping you control problems with your gums, we can offer solutions when poor health has already led to issues with tooth loss.
Implant Dentistry And The Restoration Of Your Complete Smile
Through implant dentistry, it is possible to restore your smile and oral health by providing stable, dependable dental restorations. Your implant is set directly into your jawbone, imitating a kind of support for a restoration that matches what your teeth naturally receive from their roots. Once an implant is placed and time passes to allow for your recovery, a permanent prosthetic tooth can be put in place to provide cosmetic and oral health benefits.
Other Services That Help Manage Periodontal Problems
There are different services that your periodontist may need to provide to help with your candidacy for prosthetic treatment. These services include laser jawbone grafting work, which helps you support your implant and successfully hold a restoration in place. We can also provide treatment to fight bacteria and remove unhealthy tissues through laser periodontal treatment, which helps to prevent possible complications.
