Need To Replace Missing Teeth?
Dental Implants Offer The Best Solution!
Do you have failing or missing teeth and are horrified about the thought of putting bulky and fake looking dentures in your mouth? Did you know about 35 million Americans have lost all their teeth and close to 180 million have lost at least one tooth?
Tooth loss is much more than an inconvenience or esthetic problem. To properly categorize, tooth loss is considered a disease or disability which leads to serious other dental, medical, psychological, and social consequences.
The following are some serious consequences of not replacing missing teeth:
- Shifting and Tilting of remaining teeth: Missing teeth create empty spaces which cause shifting and tilting of adjacent teeth. Such undue teeth movement lead to bite imbalance, misalignment of teeth, TMJ ( jaw Joint) disorders, possible facial pain and headaches, and periodontal disease.
- General medical and health problems: People with missing teeth have compromised chewing ability which may lead to restricted diet and nutritional deficiencies. They may develop digestive disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia, and possible obesity.
- Jaw bone loss and pre-mature aging: Missing teeth result in jaw bone atrophy and collapse of facial structures. People with missing teeth develop facial asymmetry, premature facial wrinkles (especially around mouth), loss of lip posture and fullness, and premature aging. In extreme cases in which all teeth have been missing for a long period of time, and severe facial bone loss, the appearance of “witch face’ may develop.
- Psychological and social consequences: Missing teeth seriously compromises facial esthetics. People with missing teeth avoid smiling and feel less attractive and have lower self confidence. They quite often avoid public appearance and become less social.
Whether it is just one or several, or all missing teeth, it is extremely important to explore dental implants as the logical and modern approach to restore your mouth. Dental implants are self supporting units that anchor to jaw bone, mimicking natural teeth. Unlike dentures and bridges that are attached to other natural teeth, dental implants draw their support directly from your jaw bone. Implant supported teeth are strong and natural looking. They stay in your mouth permanently and become a part of your mouth. People with dental implants quite often forget they have dental implants because dental implants feel, function, and look like natural teeth.
