dental implantsThe sun can age our skin prematurely, and time takes its toll on our appearance. Aging is a natural process, but no one wants to look older than necessary. But missing teeth will also cause you to look older. How? No matter what your age, every day that you wear dentures or have missing teeth, you will lose more of the bone that gives your face its youthful shape. As the amount of facial bone gradually diminishes, the proportions of the face change. The height of the face lessens and wrinkles appear, contributing to an aged appearance. Dental implants actually prevent the bone loss that naturally follows the loss of teeth. Like your natural teeth, implants are in direct contact with the bone, so the bone is constantly stimulated. This stimulation preserves the bone and sustains the underlying structure of your face.
