Don’t ignore missing teeth
The benefits of replacing missing teeth go so far beyond cosmetics. When teeth are allowed to remain missing, not only do your smile and confidence suffer, but your oral health and bone structure will be in danger as well.
When you have a gap in your smile, the surrounding teeth will begin to shift and rotate, which can cause problems for your oral hygiene, and your bite which can lead to jaw joint or TMJ problems. Without the supporting tooth root, the jawbone actually begins to deteriorate, or atrophy, which is what causes the “sunken face” appearance you may have noticed in some patients who are missing teeth. Dental implants help maintain your oral health and facial structure.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the gums and allowed to fuse with the jawbone. Implants are tooth root replacements that preserve your oral health, and serve as anchors for restorations like crowns and dentures. Benefits of dental implants include:
- Preserve integrity of surrounding teeth
- Prevent jawbone atrophy or “sunken face”
- Secure restorations like crowns & dentures
- Enjoy your favorite foods
- Speak, laugh, & smile with confidence
