ATLANTA, GA, May 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Your teeth help to define the shape of your face. If you lose a tooth or have to have a tooth or teeth removed, there can be an effect on the structure of your mouth. Empty spaces in your mouth can give your face a sunken appearance. It is common to replace teeth with bridges or dentures, but neither of these methods prevent bone loss. When the teeth are lost, the jawbone can become atrophied and the face can become sunken, causing you to look older than your years.
Dental implants are the only dental option that helps to prevent bone loss. Implants are firmly anchored to the jawbone, allowing the implant to stimulate the jaw, encouraging bone growth and creating a stronger bond. By mimicking the natural actions of your original teeth, your jaw is healthy and you look better. Whether you have lost one tooth or many, dental implants increase stability and comfort and can leave you feeling more confident.
Bone loss can cause thinning of the lips, loss of bone height, collapsing of the lower lip and chin and increased wrinkles. Often patients find that their mouth will turn downward leaving a permanent frown when the face is in a relaxed position. Consequently, bone loss can add years to your face, making others think you are much older than you are.
"We often recommend dental implants to our patients. Not only do they help keep the jaw healthy, but they also provide a better and more stable chewing surface and are they are more comfortable for the patient than other tooth replacement methods." explains Ken Tralongo, CEO of Tralongo Management.
