An attractive smile can give you the confidence to be all that you can be. However, when you’re missing teeth, it can change your outlook by making you feel uncomfortable and inferior. Dental implants from Dr. Mukesh Patel offer a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile. Here are a few ways tooth implants can give you the smile of your dreams.
Dental implants complete your smile by filling the gap left by a missing tooth. Implants have the appearance, function, and feel of natural teeth. Customized implants blend in beautifully with surrounding teeth to regenerate your smile.
Implants consist of titanium posts permanently embedded into your jawbone topped by porcelain crowns that mirror the appearance of your natural teeth. The titanium post provides strength and stability to your implants to enable them to function like natural teeth. You can eat, laugh, talk, and smile with confidence knowing your implants will stay in place securely.
The roots of your natural teeth help preserve jawbone density. Loss of teeth results in bone loss which can alter the shape of your face by causing your jaw to sink inward. The titanium base of implants helps stimulate your jawbone to preserve bone density, which, in turn, protects the shape of your face. The titanium also promotes bone growth to maintain the health of your jaw and teeth.
Losing multiple teeth can result in saggy, wrinkly facial skin, making you look much older than you are. Implants help support your skin to keep your face (and smile) looking more attractive and youthful.
Losing multiple teeth creates a gap that can make teeth cleaning difficult. It puts you at risk of plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to cavities and gum disease. Replacing missing teeth with implants protects your oral health by making your teeth easier to clean.
