If you’re suffering from missing teeth or dentures that rock and slip, you are probably aware of the negative impact it can have on your life. Not only is your smile compromised, but so is your ability to eat comfortably and enjoy your favorite foods, and to speak and smile with confidence. But, what you may not be aware of are the consequences that can arise when missing teeth are left missing for too long. The best recommendation for the most natural and healthy smile is replacing the problem with dental implants.

Consequences of Missing Teeth

When missing teeth are allowed to remain missing, there are many consequences ranging from aesthetics, to functionality, to oral health and beyond.

  • Unsightly gap in your smile
  • Difficult or painful to eat & chew
  • Speech pattern may be effected
  • Confidence suffers
  • Surrounding teeth begin to move & shift
  • Alignment is compromised
  • Bite changes
  • TMJ problems
  • Gum tissue deteriorates
  • Underlying jawbone deteriorates
  • Sunken face appearance

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts or screws that are essentially tooth root replacements. Dental implants are surgically inserted into the gums and into the jawbone using computer-guided precision technology. Implants typically require a healing period of several months to actually become fused with the jawbone, effectively becoming a fully integrated component of your new complete smile.

Compared to traditional restorations that sit on top of the gums, dental implants actually replace the root of the tooth, which is an essential piece of the complex system that is your oral health. Implants prevent the jawbone deterioration and tissue loss that you usually see in patients with missing teeth or traditional restorations. In fact, implants actually stimulate new bone and tissue growth around the implant giving you the fully formed smile you had before missing teeth.

There are many benefits in replacing missing teeth or stabilizing dentures with dental implants.

  • Keep other teeth from shifting
  • Preserve alignment & bite
  • Prevent gum tissue loss
  • Prevent jawbone deterioration
  • Stimulate new tissue & bone growth
