Tooth loss is a common occurrence. In fact, the American College of Prosthodontics reports that 178 million Americans have experienced the loss of at least one tooth. If you’ve experienced tooth loss, it’s crucial to seek restorative treatment before more damage ensues. Consulting with Dr. Jockin will help you get a professional opinion on your treatment options.
Don’t neglect treatment any longer. Doing so will leave you at risk of developing serious consequences that will not only negatively impact your self-esteem but your oral health as well. Improve your quality of life with dental implants and learn how tooth loss can influence your overall health.
Loss of functionality.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve lost only one tooth or multiple teeth, people who are missing teeth begin to experience loss of oral function almost immediately. Gaps in the smile don’t just weaken your bite, hindering your ability to eat what you want, they also affect your capacity to communicate clearly.
Dental implants help maintain the oral function that would otherwise be lost with missing teeth. Because the implant acts like a natural tooth root, it keeps your jawbone strong and gives you the freedom to live a life without constraints.
Weakening of the jawbone.
Having a full set of teeth is crucial to maintaining a healthy jawbone. Without the proper stimulation that’s provided by tooth roots, your jawbone will begin to weaken and eventually shrink. This loss of bone mass will not only distort the shape of your face, it will also make it difficult for you to get an effective restorative procedure in the future.
Dental implants are the only solution that act like your natural teeth and help maintain your facial structure by stimulating jawbone growth and preventing bone resorption.
When a person has experienced extensive tooth loss, the jawbone weakens and begins to shrink. This change affects your skin and leads to premature wrinkling, making you appear much older.
Take control of your appearance and protect your jaw by investing in dental implants. Preventing bone loss with implant placement will help maintain your facial structure, prevent sunken cheeks and saggy skin, and keep you looking your best for years to come.
Living with missing teeth can be traumatic for some people and it can hinder their self-confidence to speak and smile freely. How you feel about yourself has a great impact in your interaction with others. Don’t let missing teeth determine your outlook on life.
We all deserve to look and feel our best. Dental implants can help renew your confidence to face the world with a smile.
Anxiety and unhappiness.
Tooth loss is often associated with a higher risk of anxiety and depression. While smiling makes us feel happier, missing teeth may prevent you from smiling due to embarrassment. Don’t let an incomplete smile keep you from living to your fullest potential.
Dr. Jockin believes everyone has the right to a happy, confident life which is why she’s happy to listen to your concerns and develop a treatment plan that best fits your needs.
