3. They Prevent Bone Loss
Dental implants don’t just give you a beautiful smile, they also help prevent bone loss. When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone no longer has something to hold into place. As a result, the bone begins to resorb. With bone loss, it’s normal for the lower third of your face to start showing early signs of aging like more wrinkles around the mouth as well as sagging skin under your chin and on your neck.
When you invest in dental implants, you’re also investing in bone loss prevention. Dental implants stimulate the jaw bone and prevent it from resorbing. Instead, the jaw bone goes through osseointegration which means it forms around the implant to hold it in place. With dental implants in your jaw, you don’t have to worry about your teeth shifting or losing precious jaw bone that can result in premature aging.
