Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth. Many Americans suffer from tooth loss due to tooth decay, gum disease, poor oral hygiene, bad habits (such as teeth grinding, jaw clenching and smoking), injuries from accidents, and even poor nutrition.
There are severe consequences when you have missing teeth. First and foremost, it will affect the esthetics of your face. Your jawbone will deteriorate and your gums will shrink because of your missing teeth. The lack of structure causes the skin to sag, making you look older than your actual age.
Additionally, it will be uncomfortable for you to chew your food and to speak properly. This can affect your diet, where you’ll have to limit yourself to only eating soft food. You will also experience problems with the way you talk, which could affect your self-confidence. And of course, it’s awkward to smile when you have missing teeth.
Dental implants can solve all of your missing teeth problems. The implant acts as an artificial tooth root that is inserted into your jawbone to hold a replacement tooth or dental bridge.
Some of its advantages compared to other kinds of treatments include:
- Improved appearance
- Clearer speech
- Convenient to use compared to other dental appliances
- Easier to chew and eat
- Boosts your self-confidence
- Improves your oral health
- Durable and lasts a lifetime
