Losing a tooth quickly leads to various health problems. The jawbone begins to deteriorate, and you have a higher likelihood of developing gum disease. Plenty of people end up losing most or all of their teeth, and in this situation, TeethXpress® is the best course of action. This treatment consists of full arch dental implants that replace all of your teeth with implants fused directly to the jawbone. Since the surgery is highly intensive, it is vital for the patient to have sufficient bone tissue to support the restorations.
Reason for Adequate Bone Tissue
It is paramount to seek out implants as soon as you lose your teeth. The roots of your teeth provide stimulation to the underlying bone tissue, allowing it to remain resilient. When teeth go missing and that stimulation becomes lost, the tissue lacks necessary stimulation. Without it, the body will resorb the tissue, causing it to deteriorate. Therefore, if you wait too long to get dental implants, then the jawbone may not be strong enough to support the restorations.
Once your implants are in place, you can rest assured your jawbone will remain durable for some time to come. Unlike other restorations that only replace the visible portion of the tooth, TeethXpress® replaces every part of the tooth, including the root. This security also means you will not have to worry about your implants moving out of position or coming loose from eating something sticky. You will enjoy a full, natural facial appearance for years to come.
