Have you lost teeth as a direct result of gum disease, tooth decay or injury? If so, you’re not alone. It’s estimated that over 170 million Americans are currently missing at least one tooth. Unfortunately, many of them don’t understand how serious tooth loss can be and how important it is to receive treatment as soon as possible. Here are a few reasons why it’s important to quickly replace your missing teeth with dental implants.
Loss of mass in the jaw bone is a natural result of tooth loss. Lack of bone stimulation by the missing tooth roots leads to jaw bone degradation. Dental implants can keep bone loss from occurring by taking the place of tooth roots and providing consistent stimulation to the jaw bone. Although bone loss is typically a slow process, it begins soon after tooth loss, so it’s important to have your teeth replaced with dental implants by a skilled dentist in Colorado Springs, CO, as soon as possible. Drs. Stephen Davis, Matt VanOrman, Bill Bertsch and Edward Koditek are experienced in replacing missing teeth with high quality dental implants.
Your smile is one of the first things you notice about others and it’s one of the first things others notice about you. You’re more likely to be embarrassed by your smile if it’s full of gaps from missing teeth. Dental implants can help improve your confidence by restoring and beautifying your smile.
If you ask your dentist in Colorado Springs, CO, why you should consider dental implants over other tooth replacement options, you’ll probably be told about the long-term reliability implants offer. With good care and experienced placement, dental implants are known to last up to 15 years or longer.
