Are you struggling with tooth loss? Depending on the location of your missing tooth or teeth, your first concern may be cosmetic, but tooth loss can have functional and health consequences as well. If you’re missing many or all your teeth, you are most likely aware of how your condition has affected your ability to eat comfortably, socialize confidently, and smile openly. No matter how many teeth you have lost, whether due to advanced gum disease, facial trauma, or another situation, it is important to be aware of how much they affect your health and function, and why replacing teeth can restore your confidence and quality of life.
Why Replacing Teeth Is Important
Teeth are meant to last our lifetimes, so when they are lost or extracted and not replaced, it can affect everything from how effectively you can eat to the health of your remaining teeth and facial appearance. Tooth loss can affect your overall health as well. Without the ability to bite and chew, proper nutrition and digestion decreases. Similarly, extensive tooth loss is often the result of neglected oral health and gum disease, which has been linked to systemic complications. Without teeth, your jawbone will deteriorate as well, causing remaining teeth to shift and even altering your facial appearance as resorption leads to a “sunken in” appearance. Thankfully, permanent tooth replacements like dental implants are designed to restore not only the function and aesthetics of your smile but halt this resorption process, too.
Dental Implants = The Permanent Solution
We offer permanent tooth replacement with dental implants for one, several, or all missing teeth. Dental implants give you the confidence to enjoy a more active and social lifestyle by returning your smile to a functional, healthy, and attractive state. Dental implants are made from titanium, which naturally fuses with your jawbone when surgically placed by an oral surgeon. This provides both a strong foundation for new teeth and healthy stimulation to the bone like your natural teeth used to provide. With dental implants secured in your jaw and new teeth attached, you can enjoy the permanent benefits dental implants provide, including:
Eat all your favorite foods
Improve oral and overall health
Look and feel confident
Enjoy an attractive smile
Teeth that won’t stain or decay
Keep your smile healthy. Replace missing teeth today!
