Missing teeth can result in significant changes in the appearance and function of your smile. From the moment you lose your natural teeth, your smile will experience a drastic change in its appearance, looking unhealthy and unattractive with all the tooth loss gaps. The way you speak will also drastically be changed, especially if most of your front teeth are affected by the dental problem. Your gums may take a beating when you eat since the gum tissue will take on the role of the missing teeth in cutting through the food.
When is the best time to have dental implants? It is immediately after your teeth go missing, so you can avoid the pain, hassle, and embarrassment of going through life with missing teeth problems. The titanium dental implants are embedded into your jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots, preventing bone deterioration by providing much-needed stimulation to the bone tissue. The implants will then be attached to teeth replacements such as dental crowns or a dental bridge, to completely restore the normal appearance and function of the smile.
Even if you have already suffered from long-term tooth loss, you can still benefit from having dental implants. Even if teeth have been lost for a few years and the jawbone has undergone bone thinning, a dental implant treatment will still be able to improve the use and appearance of the smile. Mini dental implants can be used for bone that has deteriorated; this type of dental implants will be able to support a full arch of artificial teeth to restore the attractiveness, good health, and confidence of your smile.
