How Do Implants Give You a More Youthful Appearance
Posted on 8/20/2018 by Dr. Castellon
Losing teeth is something that we cannot avoid from time to time. Whether it's as a result of a degenerative disease, injury to the mouth and teeth or some other reason, we understand that it happens.
Just because you have missing teeth does not mean that you must get dentures, you do have other options. In addition to dentures and bridges, you have the option of getting dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implants
When you are missing teeth, it directly affects your appearance. It changes the shape of your face and over time, missing teeth can lead to jaw bone reabsorption and a collapse of your facial structure.
By replacing missing teeth with dental implants, this sends a signal to the body that the jaw bone is still being used and it stops the bone from being reabsorbed into the body. Additionally, the implants will help support the structure of your face, giving it a more youthful appearance.
Dental implants are different from dentures in that instead of fitting into your mouth and adhering to the surface of the gums, they are actually implanted into the jaw bone. Dental implants are effective and last for a very long time, which makes them a sought-after solution for restoration.
