Did you know that an around 120 million people in the United States currently have at least one missing tooth? Teeth can fall out for a variety of reasons, including injury, periodontal disease and age. Even certain medications can put you at a higher risk of tooth loss. Thankfully, there are a variety of tooth replacement options available to you whether you have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth. Dental implants in Danbury, CT and Bethel, CT are one of the most popular tooth replacement options because they offer many unique benefits, such as long-term reliability and convenience. They can also restore your smile in two important ways: aesthetically and functionally.
When a tooth is lost, it can cause the smile to be less attractive, especially if it is located near the front of the mouth. While there are several tooth replacement options available to replace missing teeth, dental implants are known for their natural appearance. In fact, after implants have been properly placed and have had a chance to fully heal, you won’t be able to visually tell that they are not real teeth.
When a missing tooth is not replaced, it can cause the jawbone to degrade, which can alter the shape of the jaw and the face over time. Dental implants support healthy bone density and prevent the bone from degrading after tooth loss, which helps protect the shape of the jaw and the face.
In addition to restoring the beauty of your smile, implants can also restore your dental function. When teeth are missing, it becomes more difficult for you to chew and speak. Once implants are placed in the jaw, they restore full dental function and make it possible for you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak naturally.
