Replacing missing teeth with dental implants in our Springfield dental office not only makes it far easier to eat and speak naturally and without worry, but dental implants also improve your quality of life by making you look younger and have more confidence.
How Dental Implants Make You Look Younger
Tooth loss leads to the deterioration of bone in the jaw. Without the stimulation from the force of chewing, the bone is no longer needed and will melt away in a process called resorption.
If you have multiple missing teeth, especially, the facial structure can begin to look sunken and aged. Dental implants preserve natural bone by replacing the root of the tooth, just like a natural tooth. This keeps the facial structure looking full and healthy.
How Dental Implants Improve Confidence
You can have your quality of life back with dental implants. Rather than tolerating dentures that move, shift, or fall at the worst times, dental implants are completely stable. You can eat an unrestricted diet and laugh with friends without a thought of having an embarrassing mishap.
Completing your smile with dental implants in our Springfield dental office will also give you your smile back. You can show off your teeth with a wide, warm smile without making it obvious that you have had dental work. No one will notice your dental implants.
Dental Implants Complement Other Dentistry
If you have significant tooth loss, you can opt to replace every missing tooth with individual dental implants, or you can choose to combine dental implants with dentures or bridges for a more economical solution with fewer surgeries.
Implant-retained dentures – Sometimes called overdentures, implant-retained dentures are secure because they snap into 4-6 dental implants that hold them in place.
Implant bridges – Implant supported bridges can eliminate the need to alter healthy teeth. Two dental implants will secure a false tooth in place to complete the smile.
