Feel Young and Avoid Premature Aging
Aged and sunken appearance, prematurely, from bone loss can be avoided by replacing teeth with dental implants. When you lose a tooth, progressive bone deterioration begins at the site of tooth loss due to a lack of stimulation in the jaw bone. If left untreated, this bone degradation affects the jaw bone and underlying structure of the face. Cheeks and lips draw in while the jaw appears to recede, aging the appearance of the face considerably. While bone loss may be treated with bone grafts, the only action that has been successful in stopping the bone deterioration process is using dental implants for replacing your missing teeth.
