5 Ways Dental Implants Can Change Your Life

 

Did You Know?
Dental Implants Can Change Your Life in Many Ways. Here are 5 of Them.

 

The American College of Prosthodontists reports that about more than 36 million American adults have lost all of their teeth and 120 million are missing at least one tooth.

Regardless of the cause, tooth loss can have serious consequences on oral health, nutrition, physical health, speech, appearance, and self-esteem. Dental implants can provide a long-term solution for tooth loss that can improve more than just your smile.

Here are 5 ways dental implant restorations can change your life:

1 ~ Improve Your Speech
Missing teeth can leave gaps that cause speech impediments. Dentures can be bulky or loose, leading to discomfort, slurred words, and embarrassment. Dental implants stay secure and do not take up additional space in the mouth, so you can speak naturally.

2 ~ Preserve Your Jawbone
The roots of teeth are naturally embedded in the jawbone. When the tooth and root are missing, your jaw’s bone structure can begin to deteriorate over time. Dental implants help to preserve and strengthen the bone, as natural teeth do.

3 ~ Keep Your Teeth in Place
When a tooth is lost, surrounding teeth can shift into the opening, distorting the shape of your smile and bite. Dental implants fill the gap and hold your surrounding teeth in their correct positions.

4 ~ Look Younger
When we are in early adulthood, our teeth and jawbone work together to support our facial features. When teeth are lost, your facial skin can crease or droop near gaps. Jaw bone loss can lead to further loss of support, causing a more aged appearance. Dental implants restore your facial support and help preserve jaw bone structure.

5 ~ Improve Your Smile
Gaps in your smile can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. Dental implants look like natural teeth, restoring the beauty of your smile. Studies show that feeling good about your smile boosts your confidence and self-esteem.
