woman with full smileWhen you lose teeth, you can expect problems with your bite function, as well as an increased discomfort in the way you look. However, you may be less sure of what to expect after you undergo treatment to restore gaps caused by tooth loss. Will you have an easier time biting and chewing? Will your restorations look natural when placed? Patients at our Baxter, MN dentist’s office can feel excited to hear about the benefits of prosthetic treatment. Your custom appliance can lead to more comfort with the way you look, and it can give you fewer difficulties with your routine dental function!

Why You Should Do Something About Your Incomplete Smile

Losing teeth can hurt your appearance, and it can also negatively impact your ability to eat due to problems with biting and chewing. Over time, you can experience jaw pain and sensitivity from those changes. You can also have a greater risk for tooth loss because of this issue! Through the right treatment with a prosthetic dental restoration, you can resolve these troubles and once again show off a smile that looks confident and healthy.

Scheduling Treatment To Receive A Dental Prosthetic

We use different appliances when providing restorative dental work for someone who has missing teeth. A dental bridge will close a space where one tooth is missing, or where you need to replace several adjacent missing teeth. If you have more significant losses to deal with, you can receive partial or full dentures. These appliances can restore your appearance by imitating healthy teeth effectively. Because a dental bridge is secured permanently, it can help you bite and chew without problems.

Maintaining Your Oral Health After Recovering Your Full Smile

Whether you have replaced one tooth, you have received a restoration to replace several, or needed a full denture to restore an entire row, you should keep up with good habits after treatment to preserve your smile. In addition to following your dentist’s guidance for protecting your natural teeth and restoration, you should continue to schedule routine dental exams so that you can receive important feedback about your dental well-being, and so you can receive early warnings about problems.
