When there are no teeth in the jaw, the bone starts to degrade. The longer that there’s no tooth, more of the jaw is resorbed into the body. This can create a scenario where the jawbone is very thin. This can create a sunken appearance, with recessed jaws, and a sagging, dropping face.
Implants support the jawbone around it. They encourage fresh growth of bone, as well as stabilising what’s there. This maintains the shape of your face and keeps you looking youthful for longer. The integration of the implant with the bone preserves the jaw for longer.
Speak to your dentist today about how dental implants give you your life back. One of the biggest benefits of implants is that people say they feel confident again. They can smile, eat, talk, sing and laugh with complete happiness that their teeth, and smile, look amazing. You can have this too, with no stress around socialising, eating in public, or a fear of photos.
