Older woman with an attractive smileWrinkles and gray hair aren’t the only things that can make you look older. Tooth loss is attributed to being elderly. As a result, people may perceive you as being much older than your true age. Not to mention, missing teeth create physical changes to your face, which can add even more years to your appearance. You can turn back the clock and boost your confidence by treating your tooth loss with dental implants. You can invest in long-lasting results using the most reliable solution for tooth replacement.

Take 10 Years Off Your Appearance

Studies have found that a person with missing teeth is viewed as an average of 10 years older than their chronological age. Filling the gaps in your smile can make you look years younger. A dental implant will look and feel natural because it is the only treatment to mimic both the tooth root and the crown. You can invest in a healthy, beautiful, and youthful smile using a method that can last for 30 years or longer.

Maintain Your Facial Shape

Missing teeth can cause many changes, not just to your self-esteem. Losing even one tooth can cause you to lose up to 25% of your jaw’s bone density within the first year. Your bone will shrink slowly from the absence of a tooth root. Over time, this will change the shape of your face. Since a dental implant rebuilds a tooth from the root up, it offers jawbone preservation. You’ll keep your jaw strong and healthy to maintain your facial shape.

Prevent Wrinkles and Sagging Skin

Insufficient bone and lost teeth won’t provide your facial tissues with enough support. This can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. You may also develop a sunken appearance. Dental implants will keep your jaw strong to support your facial tissues. You’ll maintain volume to avoid premature wrinkles.

Avoid Future Tooth Loss

A single lost tooth puts you at risk of additional missing teeth from poor bone support. A dental implant will keep your remaining natural teeth strong and healthy to avoid future tooth loss. Not only will you preserve your dental health, but you’ll also prevent needing costly procedures later.

It’s never too late to invest in dental implants. Your dentist will restore your youthful appearance using the most successful solution for tooth loss.
