Dental Implants: Revitalize Your Smile!
If you’re missing teeth or have adult teeth that need to be removed, you might be nervous about what’s next. Do you just live with a gap in your smile for the rest of your life? Is it healthy to do that?
The truth is that missing teeth cause significant problems with your mouth, jaw, and even your face. The good news is that you don’t have to live with gaps. Dental implants can give you natural-looking teeth that help protect surrounding teeth and keep your mouth and jaw healthy.
If you have a gap from a missing tooth, your jaw in that area will lose 25% of its volume in just the first year. Bone loss will continue over time if you don’t take action. This not only weakens your jaw but can also cause your face to sag.
An implant strengthens the bone by giving it something to adhere to and grow around, just like a normal tooth. This stops bone loss and restores your normal face structure.
