Dental Implants Offer Cosmetic Benefits

Dental implants offer many cosmetic benefits, including preventing the appearance of premature aging.  When someone is missing teeth, they also lose supporting bone over time.  It’s like putting a bar of soap in the shower and turning on the water—the soap melts away.  When teeth are missing, the jawbone tends to atrophy or shrink over time.  As a result, some patients may look older than their years, because their face takes on a sunken appearance.

Dental implants and the resulting ability to chew help to stimulate the bone and keep it healthy. In addition to the many other practical and functional benefits provided by dental implants, they also help to preserve bone and keep patients looking vibrant and healthy.
