There is more to tooth loss than the gap that is left in the smile. In fact, a domino effect occurs if even one tooth is lost. For the adult who has needed to have remaining natural teeth extracted, the effects are compounded. Of course the immediate concern with tooth loss is the smile. Then there is the issue of chewing function. The total effect of tooth loss may take several months if not years to realize.
When teeth are lost their roots are lost as well. Because we do not see our teeth roots every day, we can forget how vitally important they are to our level of function and wellbeing. The roots keep teeth stable for biting and chewing. They also transfer force from teeth into the jawbone. In the absence of roots, no artificial tooth will be as stable as it should. Additionally, bone tissue in the jaw will break down quickly without stimulation from the roots or a viable replacement.
How Implants Can Improve Health And Wellbeing
Implant technology has continued to advance in the several decades since this treatment first became available. Dental implants are essentially root replacements. In a simple procedure, these tiny posts are inserted into the jawbone and then covered with gum tissue. Over the course of months, bone tissue fuses around these posts and integrates them into the natural oral structure. With this new standard of care, the team at Esquire Dental Centres is able to address a number of concerns related to tooth loss.
