McKinney Dentist | Trusting Dental Implants To Support Larger Restorations

At our McKinney, TX dentist’s office, we have experience providing custom restorations for individuals who have lost multiple teeth, or even an entire row of teeth. In order to enjoy better functional support, and a surprising degree of comfort, you can have a restoration held securely by dental implants. Replacing missing teeth with a fixed prosthetic can give you a renewed feeling of confidence in your smile, and it can have important benefits when it comes to your oral health. In many cases, our practice can take care of every step of your implant-based prosthetic work, which means you can avoid moving between multiple practices in order to have your smile fully restored.

How A Dental Implant Holds A Prosthetic Appliance In Place

Dental implants are small posts made of biocompatible titanium that can be set in your jawbone. After placement, the bone will actually fuse with the implant to provide lasting stability for both the post and the restoration. The support this arrangement delivers can actually mimic the type of support a regular tooth receives from its roots, which means you can feel comfortable biting, chewing, and speaking.

Planning Restorative Work To Address Significant Tooth Loss

While a dental implant can be employed as a means of holding a dental crown as a single-tooth restoration, a few selectively placed implants are able to hold larger restorations, including full dentures. When restoring your smile, your dentist will first work on having your implant placement scheduled and performed. Once an appropriate healing period passes, you can have your prosthetic appliance restored, meaning it will be fixed in place to your implants. Once this work is complete, you can trust your prosthetic to stay in place while you bite, chew, speak, and laugh.

Enjoying Life With Your Restored Smile

After having your smile fully restored, you can enjoy support that is similar to what you enjoyed with your natural teeth. Implant-held restorations can be trusted to absorb biting and chewing pressure. In fact, when you use these restorations, you  stimulate the implants that are in place, which can help sustain the health of your jawbone. At regular dental checkups, we can make sure that your prosthetic appliance remains in good health, and that no issues have affected your implants. It is important to keep up with smart preventive dental care after treatment, as your restored smile, like your natural smile, can be negatively affected by accumulating oral bacteria.
