Tooth Loss Can Limit Your Diet – Dental Implants Can Help

As if an embarrassing change to your smile wasn’t frustrating enough, tooth loss can create problems for your ability to enjoy certain foods! The degree of change to your bite function can depend on the number of teeth you have lost, and the locations of those teeth.

We Can Help You Understand The Value Of Dental Implants

What role can dental implants play in helping a person restore their full smile? Why do patients elect to have them put in place in order to hold a restoration? At our Londonderry, NH dental practice, we have helped many patients bring back their full smile, and also improve their dental function, with implant-held restorations! With an implant put in place, it is possible to keep a prosthetic secured permanently to your jawbone. This imitates the kind of support that natural teeth receive from their roots, and it allows for a comfortable experience while biting, chewing, and speaking. Implants also help you by keeping your jawbone from deteriorating, which is something that affects people who have suffered tooth loss. (more…)

My Dentures No Longer Feel Comfortable – What Can I Do?

Over time, a person with dentures may feel that their prosthetic is less secure than it used to be. Is this because the denture itself is in poor shape? If you have a denture supported by epoxies or suction, this change in your comfort could actually be traced back to issues with your jawbone. Tooth loss robs the bone of support from teeth roots, which create stimulation that tell your body to deliver nutrients to your jaw. In the absence of that stimulation, you can lose jawbone mass, which can affect your oral health and appearance. At our Londonderry, NH dental practice, we can provide dental implant-supported dentures that stimulate your jawbone, and ensure that the bone stays healthy. (more…)

Rely On A Fixed Bridge To Restore Your Dental Function

When you have a gap in your smile because of tooth loss, you can quickly learn to adjust the way you bite and chew to avoid that space. This can feel like a necessary adjustment, but it may not feel natural even after an extended period of time. When a person’s jaw function is compromised, the stress created by the change can lead to painful issues with TMJ dysfunction. Limiting your biting and chewing to a portion of your smile can also lead to certain teeth wearing down more quickly, and requiring restorative dental work. A fixed dental bridge can give you back the ability to bite and chew comfortably. This appliance can be secured permanently without oral surgery, making it a convenient way to permanently address tooth loss. (more…)
