How Missing Teeth Impact Your Health
Tooth loss is a major problem that affects more than just your appearance. It’s a far more common issue than most people realize. In fact, 120 million Americans are suffering from tooth loss.
Having gaps in your smile can have a significant impact on your physical and mental well-being. Discover the consequences of tooth loss and how dental implants can improve your health.
Loss of functionality.
Having missing teeth can cause you to slur your words, interfering with your ability to communicate effectively. Tooth loss can also weaken your bite, making it difficult to eat some of your favorite foods. This can potentially lead to poor nutrition.
Dental implants fuse directly with your jawbone to replace your natural tooth root in a process called osseointegration. Once they’re topped with a durable porcelain crown, the implants can completely restore your ability to eat and speak.
You’ll be able to indulge in all of your favorite foods and speak confidently again.
Weakening of the jawbone.
When you lose a tooth, the connected area of your jawbone no longer receives stimulation. This leads to rapid bone deterioration, which causes your surrounding teeth to shift and facial structure to collapse.
Dental implants are the only tooth restoration option that stimulates healthy jawbone growth and prevents further damage. The implant is made of titanium, which acts like a natural tooth root and protects your long-term oral health.
Having one or more missing teeth can make you feel embarrassed and want to hide your smile. This can affect your self-esteem, social life, and how you interact with people.
Everyone deserves a smile to be proud of, which is why we offer dental implants as a seamless solution to restore your smile. They look and function like natural teeth so you can smile with confidence again. Best of all, your stunning smile will last a lifetime with good dental hygiene care.
Anxiety and unhappiness.
