With the loss of a tooth, your jawbone lying beneath it becomes weaker and starts to shrink. When the jawbone withers, it not only affects your smile – it eventually changes the shape of your jawline as well as your entire face. For this reason, many people who have lost their teeth can look older than they actually are.
How can dental implants make you look younger?
Losing a tooth can negatively affect your smile and your natural ability to properly chew food. Eventually, your regular diet and nutrition will also be affected, which impacts your overall health and appearance. The good news is dental implants can replace missing teeth and work to reverse many of those negative effects. Dental implants can:
- Fill the gap between your teeth
- Increase your jawbone strength
- Make you look younger
- Bring back your natural smile
