Part of protecting your health and smile includes replacing missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures. Permanent tooth replacement with dental implants creates a natural-looking beautiful smile. Plus, dental implants help protect your overall health.
If you’ve lost one, two or multiple teeth, you’re not alone. According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, 69% of adults 35-44 have lost at least one tooth. Beyond causing feelings of embarrassment, missing teeth can lead to pain, difficulty eating and a less active lifestyle. The longer you wait to address missing teeth, the harder they can be to replace.
If you delay replacing missing teeth, it can lead to a variety of health problems, such as missing nutrition, shifting bite, sagging jaw or jaw pain. Teeth may shift to compensate for the missing ones, trapping plaque in hard-to-reach places. Missing teeth may also impact your speech.
Choosing a dental implant to replace a missing tooth can be advantageous for a number of reasons, including an increase in the esthetics of your smile and facial structure. When you loose an entire tooth, the missing root structure can cause shrinkage of the jawbone, which may cause your face to look older. Dental implants can prevent the process of bone reabsorption or shrinkage from ever starting.
