Missing teeth is never ideal. From the lack of confidence, you start feeling to not being able to eat your favorite foods, failing or missing dentition cause major issues. If you have ever noticed a jaw or facial structure with the appearance of being sunken in, this is another issue that arises with missing teeth. Not reconstructing your smile and continuing to suffer allows your jaw bone to begin diminishing, no longer keeping structure or strength to the face. Many people do not realize that when you lose teeth and do not fix the issue, the jaw begins to deteriorate. When you stop having teeth, pressure is no longer applied by eating or talking, making the jawbone not in use. This begins to cause the jaw to whither and eventually other teeth begin to fall out because of the lack of oral strength.
Dental implants are a solution to fix missing teeth and keep your jawbone density. The dental implant process relies on titanium rods that are inserted into the jawbone, which then have an abutment and crown placed on top. The implant itself going into the jawbone strengthens the jaw, because it is acting as your new teeth roots. Dental implants are a great option for those who are missing teeth because of the jawbone strength, and teeth permanency. Implants are the only solution that allow a permanent dental solution, that also provides durability and strength to eating and speaking. With dental implants, you no longer have to worry about the feeling of embarrassment when you are going to a restaurant with friends or having a conversation with coworkers. They are a stable option that allow a patient to have the strength of chewing, more than natural teeth. Implants also look and feel like natural teeth, so you never have to worry about somebody suspecting your teeth are false.
