Missing teeth affect everything from your confidence to your diet. Trying to chew on the other teeth that are left can cause them to wear down prematurely, or even to shift out of place.
Fortunately, dental implants offer an advantage over more conventional forms of tooth replacement. Our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist, Dr. Alexander S. Moradzadeh, D.D.S, feels that they’re a smart investment because they last longer than any other form of restoration in modern dentistry.
Preserve the Integrity of Your Bone and Surrounding Teeth
One of the most common side effects of tooth loss is bone resorption. It can cause your face to appear “sunken in” in areas after losing teeth. This leads to a chain reaction across the mouth, compromising the integrity of your bite. Fortunately, getting implants allows one to prevent this from happening. In fact,dental implants encourage new bone growth through a process we call “osseointegration.”We recommend replacing your tooth as quickly as possible to preserve healthy bone and tooth positioning.
Tooth Loss and A Balanced Diet
Having healthy teeth is vital to ensure our body is equipped with the tools necessary to process the nutrients that it needs. But when you can’t chew crispy vegetables or bite into fresh produce, you’ll usually revert to processed foods that aren’t as healthy.
When our dentist equips you with implants, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods again, because these new “teeth” are just as structurally sound as your original ones…if not even stronger.
Smile With Confidence Again
Your smile is an accessory that you’ll want to wear every day. But missing teeth may cause you to not smile at all. Or, if you’re wearing a removable prosthesis such as a denture, you might feel self-conscious about how you look and sound in public…especially if it tends to slip and rock out of place.
With implants, you can avoid those worries altogether. Each permanent new “tooth” stays in place almost as if it were the real thing all over again. It’s the next best thing to having natural teeth.
