Dental implants in New London, CT save not only your smile, but your confidence and self-esteem. People who have missing teeth will often hide their smile while talking or standing in front of the camera. With dental implants, you do not need to hide anymore. You will be able to smile wide and live your life to the fullest; however, the benefits are not just aesthetic. A full set of teeth can save your oral health, in more ways than one:
Many periodontists recommend dental implants in New London, CT to replace missing teeth and restore smiles. A missing tooth may not seem problematic but can have disastrous effects on your smile and jaw health in the long-term.
When there is no tooth root stimulating the jaw bone, the bone in the area of tooth loss can start to deteriorate. Surrounding teeth may end up drifting into the open space left by a missing tooth, changing the way your teeth fit together. Placing a dental implant effectively rebuilds the smile and helps prevent jaw bone loss and other negative consequences.
