Saving Your Smile, Even If You Lose A Tooth To Injury

If your dental emergency leaves you with a lost tooth, or a tooth that feels alarmingly loose, your Prairie Village, KS dentist can take care to save it, and preserve your complete smile. Unfortunately, even when the proper care is taken to safely transport the tooth, the damage may make it beyond the point where your dentist can return it to its proper place. While this may be a worrying thought, you can be comforted by the knowledge that modern prosthetic dental care can offer a better, more attractive solution than you may expect. A dental implant can act as a replacement tooth root to hold your prosthetic, making it dependable for biting and chewing, and helping it fit in naturally with surrounding teeth.

When You Respond Quickly To An Emergency, Your Dentist Can Try To Save Your Tooth

Prompt treatment is always advisable when you are suffering from a dental emergency. With that said, timing can be particularly sensitive when you have a tooth that is lost. If the tooth can be saved, your dentist can work with you to return it, and allow you to preserve your natural, full smile. If this is not possible, you can learn more about the options open to you for replacing the tooth (or teeth) you have lost.

Understanding What A Modern Prosthetic Restoration Offers Patients

Modern prosthetic support from a dental implant does more than just make daily life easier with your restoration. Over time, your oral health can benefit because your implant provides stimulation that keeps the surrounding jawbone tissue in good shape. An implant can also limit the movement of neighboring teeth, so you have fewer issues with them over time.
