Have you or someone you know experienced this type of destructive change in facial structure? These changes happen when teeth are lost and not replaced, which also leads to bone loss. With continued bone loss, the facial structure begins to change, resulting in a premature aged appearance. Living without teeth not only ages a person’s appearance, but can impact their self-confidence as well. Studies show that almost 75% of Americans are more likely to trust someone with a nice smile as opposed to having a nice car or beautiful clothes. This makes an attractive smile not only cosmetically significant, but also important in everyday life and business. Dental implants can help restore your ability to eat, smile, and talk naturally, and also help you regain your confidence.
Here are three important things to keep in mind about dental implants:
Talk and smile with confidence: It is a fact that people with missing teeth hide their smile and refrain from talking since missing teeth can make pronunciation difficult. Dental implants are now the standard of care for replacing teeth and will improve your smile and help you talk more comfortably.
More effective way to avoid aging: It is not uncommon for people to seek plastic surgery to look better and feel more confident about themselves. Similarly dental implants as an elective procedure will rejuvenate and help you look and feel younger. Dental implants alleviate the aging changes in your facial structure due to missing teeth, which plastic surgery alone can’t correct.
Long lasting investment: Dentures don’t look natural, need special care, and may last only 5 to 7 years, more importantly cause significant damage to the jaw bone. Dental implants, however, can be taken care of like natural teeth, they don’t decay, and they preserve your jaw bone. Additionally it is a long term treatment option that not only can last a lifetime but also saves you money.
According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), dental implants have a 95% success rate. In fact, Dr. Kazemi’s 17 years of experience placing dental implants reflects a success rate of over 99% and he also provides a lifetime warranty.
