Many people lose teeth at some point in their lives. Age often has something to do with the loss of teeth, often the result of years of wear and tear and the general weakening of the teeth and gums over time. But teeth may be lost for other reasons as well. Decay, disease and even injury may result with teeth missing. In any case, it is important that you replace teeth you have lost as soon as you can so as to restore your dental health as well as your general ability to speak and to eat with ease. Here at TruCare Dental or North Valley dentist can help provide you with the comprehensive care that you need when it comes to replacing teeth and may even be able to provide you with dental implants.
When you lose teeth, a lot of things can change. First off, your appearance will be different on many different accounts. You will have gaps in your smile and your face may appear gaunt and hollow without a full smile to support it. Eating may be a challenge as biting or chewing may become quite difficult. This can actually put a great deal of strain on your bite and it can be quite detrimental over time which is why it is so important that you have your dental health taken care of and have your missing teeth replaced. Here at TruCare Dental, our North Valley dentist can examine the current state of your dental health and determine whether you are eligible for dental implants. When it comes to cosmetic reconstruction, dental implants look, feel and perform the closest to real teeth. These artificial teeth are molded to specifically match any remaining teeth that you have and are anchored into your jaw with the use of titanium posts so that they remain firmly in place. These titanium posts meld with your jawbone as they heal so they become replacement tooth roots in the process, providing your teeth with the support they need. With dental implants you can eat and speak again with confidence.
Before going through with this procedure it is important to make sure that your bones are healthy enough to support implants. Our North Valley dentist here at TruCare Dental can provide you with the proper procedure and can help you through the surgery if everything checks out.
