Sooner or later you’re going to look in the mirror, if you haven’t already, and notice fine lines and wrinkles that weren’t there before. You’ll look back at old pictures of yourself and remember the time you could maintain a youthful glow.
Aging is entirely normal but certain factors can contribute to premature aging, making you look years older than you really are. The goal is to look younger, right?
At New Albany Implants, we offer several dental options to fight premature aging that can result from missing or failing teeth. Learn more about how we can help you maintain a youthful appearance while caring for your oral health, then call us at (888) 469-3982 to find out what solutions are right for you.
How Missing Teeth Cause Premature Aging
The root of your natural tooth stimulates bone tissue growth in your jaw, keeping the bone healthy and strong. It’s the stimulation of the upper and lower teeth when you chew that helps keep the bone healthy.
But when you’re missing a tooth, the bone that was surrounding and supporting that tooth isn’t getting the stimulation it needs. Without proper stimulation, the bone will start to deteriorate over time. As the bone deteriorates, changes in your appearance will start to become more obvious.
You may notice that your cheeks and lips look more sunken, causing wrinkles to form around your mouth. These changes will cause you to look years older than you really are.
Dental Implants To Make You Look Years Younger
A dental implant is the only tooth replacement option that replaces your tooth’s roots as well as the crown. These implants, made of titanium, are surgically placed in your jawbone to serve as the foundation for a tooth replacement.
Once implanted in your jawbone, the titanium rod will fuse with your jawbone, quite literally becoming a part of you. It is because of this fusion that the implant will then be as strong, durable, and long-lasting as a natural, healthy tooth root.
We can then attach a replacement tooth, arch, or implant-supported permanent teeth. that will be secured by the implant. This process protects your jawbone, allows you to avoid a sunken appearance, and prevent premature wrinkles that would otherwise form as the result of missing teeth.
If you’ve previously been told you couldn’t benefit from dental implants because of a lack of bone density in your jaw, we offer a unique service that allows you to still take advantage of all the benefits dental implants have to offer. Be sure to ask us about our graftless implant solutions when you visit our New Albany, IN dental office.
