What does your smile say about your age? If you are living with missing teeth or a poorly fitting tooth replacement, your smile may look like a fake I.D. It’s adding years to your actual age!
Rather than simply accept the consequences of tooth loss, it may be time that you consider the advantages of dental implants. As the most life-like and attractive tooth replacement, implants allow you to regain the youthful smile that you once enjoyed. Even with close social contact, no one will be able to detect your artificial teeth. They’ll only notice that your full and attractive smile seems healthy and natural.
Missing front teeth are evident when you smile, making you appear older, less attractive, and it’s a symbol of poor health. When teeth are missing in the rear of the mouth, the spaces may not be visible when you smile, but there are other consequences that convey the impression of an accelerated aging process.
Without the fullness of a complete set of teeth, your cheeks and jaws can appear sunken and thin. Sagging jowls and a hollow appearance can instantly make you look and feel years older. Combined with the physical changes, the loss of your natural teeth can steal your motivation to smile. Smiling less frequently, or resisting the urge to smile openly, tends to communicate negative social cues that make you appear less friendly and less approachable.
There is a simple solution to the complications of tooth loss. Your oral surgeon can place one or more dental implants. This revolutionary technique for rehabilitating your smile has a long list of advantages. Esthetically, implants are the most similar to your own teeth. Functionally, they work as hard as your own teeth. Intraorally, they feel most like your own teeth. Statistically, their long-term success rate is consistently higher than 97%.
Your appearance is closely linked to the state of your dental health. When you are challenged by tooth loss, the consequences can rob you of your youth.
