5. Dental Implants Prevent Bone Loss
When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone no longer needs to support a tooth. Without any need for support, it will slowly begin to resorb. As your bone density decreases, your facial structure will start to change. The jaw bone doesn’t just support your teeth, it also supports the lower third of your facial structure. As it resorbs, your facial structure has less support and will begin to sink into your face. As a result, more wrinkles will show up around your mouth, and skin will begin to sag under your chin.
Dental implants prevent bone loss which will also prevent you from experiencing early signs of aging. This is because the implants stimulate the jaw bone. After they’re surgically inserted, osseointegration occurs and the bone grows around the implant to hold it in place. This is how implants support false teeth like natural teeth. Bone loss prevention is one of the top benefits of dental implants.
