How Dental Implants Impact Your Jaw And Appearance

Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. If you are considering dental implants it is good to know that once you attach them to your teeth they will dramatically improve the quality of life. When the treatment is completed you will be able to eat and drink without the fear of your dentures falling out, for instance.


The first thing you will notice about dental implants is an aesthetically improved appearance. Since your teeth will appear completely natural no one will be able to tell the difference between new implants and your real teeth.


The jawbone is designed to hold your teeth firmly in position. This means when a tooth falls out the jawbone no longer functions in that particular area. This can sometimes result in a gradual facial collapse. Your jaw line holds the facial structure in place and with its deterioration the lower face may appear sunken. In addition, bone loss can result in the gradual decrease of gum tissue. The loss of gums will impact your ability to speak, chew and even hold dentures.


Once the implant has been fixed the function will resume because the jawbone will accept the implant as a natural tooth. At the same time, you will experience fewer dental problems with the rest of your teeth. If the tooth is not replaced, the adjacent teeth will feel a lot of pressure. All this can lead to damaging, breaking and chipping of your teeth. With a dental implant that pressure is off and your teeth will start functioning again as normal.


There is an interesting discovery in this procedure. The implants are the closest to a natural tooth you can find that it even tricks your body into accepting it as a tooth root. This helps stimulate growth and prevents bone loss while keeping the bone aligned with your jaw and facial structure.


Young or old, one of the most effective ways to restore your smile and have a newer more stunning appearance is through dental implants in Dubai.
