The Best Option To Replace Missing Teeth? Dental Implants

Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth you can get!

People who are missing teeth often find it difficult to chew and swallow, and this can affect your digestion as well as your general health and well-being. However, it seems that what most people are not aware of is that missing teeth can lead to other dental issues: if a tooth is missing the other teeth on either side will attempt to fill in the gap. The other issues from missing teeth are, potentially, bone loss and gum disease.

Bone loss results in jawbone shrinkage that can change the shape of your face. If this does happen it will give the person the appearance of a sunken face, lips will appear thinner and the skin around the mouth and neck will wrinkle.

Another problem: people unfortunate enough to suffer gum disease or ailments related to their jawbone may not be able to have dental implants. This is due to the fact that dental implants need to be REPLACEed into the jawbone and if it has been adversely affected by gum disease or missing teeth; you may need to consult your dentist for other options.
