How Implants Keep You Looking Younger

Posted on 5/15/2018 by Sergio Ortegon
Dental Implants Ortegon Prosthodontics TX 77401Regardless of when or why your tooth falls out, your jawbone immediately starts shrinking. This changes the way that your face looks by aging it - causing sagging cheeks and wrinkles to develop.

When this happens, you may start to feel a lack of self-confidence. Although dentures won't help in this regard, well-fitting dental implants can make you look and feel younger.

How Dental Implants Help You Look Younger

When you have dental implants, you look like your mouth is fuller. This is because they fit snugly into the gap where your teeth are missing from.

As such, your cheeks won't look like they sag as much. Dental implants also stop unwanted bone shrinkage that happens when you lose a tooth leaving its roots unstimulated.

Over time this can change your face's shape. Unfortunately, dentures can't help with this because they simply sit on your gum line. However, dental implants get secured in your jawbone where the tissue fuses and merges with it to create a strong, solid platform that supports your new crown.

When this happens, the bone shrinking process stops and your bone starts to re-grow. You'll also feel more self-confident because you'll look great aesthetically. In fact, your friends and family won't even be able to tell the difference between these and your real teeth.

This is because we can use a color match process that seamlessly blends your new artificial teeth with the natural ones you already have. You won't age as much as when you have an unnatural looking set of dentures placed in your mouth, which means you'll be more self-confident too.

Now that you have a better understanding of how dental implants will keep you looking younger, you'll want to consider getting these instead of dentures. After all, they're the most natural alternative when you have missing teeth. So, when you're ready to get dental implants, give us a call.
