Let's face it, all of us want to look younger than we actually are. There's nothing wrong with wanting to look as young as possible, right? Millions of Americans spend billions of dollars every year to look younger. Have you ever thought that your mouth may make you look older than you really are?
There are ways that you can help your mouth look and feel as young as you do. Dental implants can give your face a younger looking appearance. Not sure what we mean? Keep reading. We can show you how implants can help take years off your face.
Years ago, the only way to replace lost, broken or missing teeth was to get dentures. If someone needed dentures, they would have to have their teeth pulled, so that a denture for their upper or lower jaw could be fitted. While this allowed adults to have a look of natural teeth, and allowed them to chew food, it aged their faces more rapidly than those adults who had their own teeth.
That's because researchers discovered over time, the jaws of adults without teeth began to deteriorate. This leads to a loss of bone in people's jawlines, which tends to make the mouth sink in, and gives your face a more drawn-in look.
Dental implants, on the other hand, replace only the teeth that are missing. Instead of removing implants every night, implants are a permanent part of your jaw. They are screwed into your jawline, and they look and act like real teeth. In fact, researchers found that if you have dental implants, your jaw doesn't lose bone mass, and your face does not begin to sink in, which makes you look younger. By getting implants, you would not only look younger, but you'd be saving your jawbones as well.
