Missing teeth can affect the appearance, function, and health of your smile. Whether your teeth are missing due to decay or damage, you may start to experience negative effects that interfere with your everyday life. Luckily, we offer dental implants to restore your smile and eliminate these consequences from your life.
Your teeth play a vital part in everyday functions, and many people don’t realize how crucial they are to your daily life. Not only are they used to chew food, but teeth also affect how you speak and communicate with others as well.
When you’re missing teeth, it becomes harder to speak clearly. This can negatively affect your relationships and career.
Dental implants restore your smile, giving you the freedom to eat what you want and speak clearly without difficulty.
Gaps in your smile due to missing teeth can cause bad oral health. They allow food to become lodged between your teeth, making your teeth and gums susceptible to infection. Missing teeth also make it harder for both you and your dentist to clean your teeth thoroughly.
By receiving dental implants, you can improve the health of your teeth and gums while reducing your risk of infection.
Your jawbone relies on your teeth and their roots to keep it healthy. The roots stimulate your jawbone and help it maintain its density. When teeth are missing, the jawbone becomes unbalanced and begins to deteriorate.
Since dental implants are placed directly into your jawbone, they’ll stimulate healthy bone growth, helping it remain stronger and denser.
Have you ever noticed your cheeks puff up when you take a big bite out of whatever you’re eating? Your teeth have a similar effect on both your lips and cheeks. If you’re missing one or more teeth, that area of your face will begin to sag over time due to the lack of support. This causes wrinkles and other premature signs of aging.
Luckily, you can fill these gaps with dental implants and prevent your face from developing additional wrinkles or sagging.
One of the first things people notice when they’re talking to someone is their smile. It’s also one of the features they are most attracted to when they’re looking for a romantic relationship. Missing teeth may make you feel more self-conscious and avoid social interactions.
Dental implants will give you a complete smile and make you feel more confident in your appearance. This will also help you create and maintain relationships.
If you’ve ever drunk something extremely hot or cold, you may have experienced pain in your mouth. While it heals quickly, your mouth is one of the most sensitive parts of your body and has a lower pain tolerance than other parts.
A smile that’s missing teeth is even more vulnerable to pain due to the gums being exposed. An oral infection can also cause severe pain inside your mouth. However, dental implants will help protect your teeth and gums from pain-causing factors such as oral infection or extreme temperatures.
When you’re missing teeth, you may smile less because you’re embarrassed by the way they look. The act of smiling has been known to create happiness, so not doing this may cause you to feel stressed or unhappy on a regular basis.
You can gain happiness and experience the emotional benefits of smiling again by restoring your smile with dental implants.
