Some people might think dental implants are a cosmetic solution when a tooth goes missing. However, that is not the case. If you have a missing tooth and you want to give yourself complete oral health, you need to place a dental implant in the spot of that missing tooth.

It might be surprising to some that there is a 25 percent decrease in width of bone in the first year after tooth loss and an overall decrease in height in the following few years. The bone needs stimulation to keep its density. The stimulation naturally comes from the teeth themselves, so the lack of a tooth means the lack of stabilization, which leads to the loss of bone density.

Not only does getting a dental implant instantly give you a stunning smile, but it also prevents any further problems that will arise while maintaining your jawbone’s shape and density. Dental implants do more than support a missing tooth; they also give support to the facial skeleton, gum tissue, cheeks and lips. Dental implants also have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.

Dental implants look completely natural and beautiful. The implants will also assist you as you chew, talk and smile and they will boost your self-esteem and physical well-being. So, call us today to start your journey with dental implants.
