Why is it important to replace missing and damaged teeth?
If you have missing or damaged teeth, suffer from severe gum disease, or have endured trauma to the mouth, you’re a good candidate for full-mouth dental implants. If you don’t replace your teeth, you risk:
Missing teeth can affect the look of your smile. With implants, you’ll have the confidence to smile freely and laugh without hesitation once again.
Your ability to eat what you want.
Damaged or missing teeth can make enjoying some foods painful and difficult, and dentures often don’t provide enough stability for eating foods such as steak, popcorn, and nuts. With dental implants, you can eat what you want, when you want.
Let’s face it. Gum disease stinks in more ways than one. Once bacteria has reached your roots, it’s nearly impossible to eliminate bad breath no matter how diligent you are. A dental implant procedure will actually remove bacteria from your mouth, and your new titanium structures will prevent it from coming back.
When you lose healthy teeth, your jawbone begins to shrink and deteriorate. This can change the shape of your face, making you look older. Dental implants prevent continued bone loss, helping you to maintain your natural facial structure.
Did you know that your oral health actually affects your overall health? Unhealthy levels of bacteria and tooth loss have been linked with cardiovascular health, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and more. When your dental implant procedure removes unhealthy bacteria from your mouth, it also removes unnecessary risks to your health.
