Find out how this dental restoration not only replaces a missing tooth but also can promote a healthier mouth.

A gap in your smile does more than just affect your appearance and self-esteem; it also affects your oral health. So, it’s important that dental implantsyou see your Naperville, IL dentist, Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi, right away to discuss your treatment options. One of the most popular tooth replacements is a dental implant because it’s the next best thing to a real tooth. Find out how it can improve your health.

Don’t Let Tooth Loss Affect the Rest of Your Smile

Whenever you chew with a missing tooth, biting forces are unevenly distributed throughout your smile, which can wear down teeth enough to cause additional tooth loss in the future, as well as increase your chances of nutritional deficits. Plus, a healthy mouth means a healthy body, so if you aren’t getting the dental treatment you need to replace your missing tooth or teeth, you better believe it will also impact your health.

Prevent Jawbone Loss with Dental Implants

Those with tooth loss may also experience jawbone deterioration if they don’t seek treatment from their dentist in Naperville right away. As the bone loses volume and density it also alters the shape of your face. Pretty soon the chin starts to get smaller and cheeks begin to cave in, causing the skin around the cheeks to sag. Ultimately, you’ll end up looking older than you actually are (which we are pretty sure no one wants to deal with).

Fortunately, because implants are biocompatible they fuse together with the jawbone, stimulating the growth of new bone cells and preventing it from deteriorating. This is the only tooth replacement that offers this unique benefit. Once the implant has fully melded together with the bone then a dental crown, bridge or even full set of dentures can be placed over top of the implant. With the proper care, an implant is designed to last the rest of your life.
