Losing a tooth can be quite a problem, not only for your dental health in general but also for your social life.
A lost tooth will not just create a space between teeth; it also increases the chances of gum bleeding and worsening tooth structure.
A lost tooth also affects how you look and we are not just talking about your front teeth. This also has an effect on your jaw and facial structure.
Your teeth and mouth will try to adjust themselves accordingly, and that can mean less calcium from your jaw, which makes it look sunken. This will also make your skin less tight, which means more wrinkles to show.
What Can I Do If I Did Lose Some Teeth?There are a lot of options available for you. For those who have just recently lost their teeth or are planning to have a tooth extraction of a permanent one, then do not lose hope.
There are other ways where a dentist can give your teeth not only protection from bacteria and damage, but also makes you look younger in the process. We are talking about dental implants.A dental implant is basically a permanent replacement for your lost tooth. These are surgically attached to your jaw.
The great thing about this against other orthodontic equipment is that a dental implant will rely on its own structure and strength, unlike bridges that rely on other nearby teeth beside it for support.
These make you look younger through two things. First, they straighten your teeth and makes your dental health a lot better. This gives you a brighter smile, and nothing makes someone younger than a great smile.
Second, dental implants save the calcium and bone structure of your jaw and face. That will increase the strength of your jaw so that it will not look sunken and makes the skin in your face tight so that lesser wrinkles will be seen.
