The Effects of Tooth Loss

Obviously, tooth loss changes your appearance significantly. You may hide your smile more, and may even feel shy or down. But there’s more to tooth loss than aesthetic drawbacks.

When a tooth falls out, the root is lost too. Roots are essential to the proper function of the jawbone. When teeth are lost, the jaw may begin to deteriorate, making the bite less stable and giving the patient a prematurely aged appearance.

It is crucial to stop bone loss as soon as possible. Bone loss occurs in the first several months after tooth loss, and continues as long as no stimulation is provided. Fortunately, dental implants are the perfect replacements for tooth roots.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants are tiny posts made of titanium. One or more can be inserted into the jawbone to take the place of missing roots.

Over a few months, the dental implants fuse with the jawbone. They stimulate and protect the jawbone, and they serve as a stable foundation for replacement teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Why are so many patients choosing dental implants for smile replacement? Some of the advantages of dental implants include:

  • 95% success rate
  • Can replace one, several, or all missing teeth
  • Protects the jawbone in a way no other tooth replacement can
  • Ensures proper bite function
  • Protects youthful appearance
  • Restores natural-looking smile
  • Allows patient to chew and speak normally again
  • Easy to take care of
  • Last for a lifetime

Dental implants may be initially more expensive than bridgework or dentures, but the lifelong results and added benefits make dental implants a more valuable investment.
