Dental issues can cause serious problems with chewing, biting, speaking and facial disfigurement. Missing teeth also have an effect on social interactions. People who do not feel comfortable with their smile or who experience constant pain in their mouths may have difficulty interacting with others and exuding a confident demeanor.
Recent studies suggest that single or multiple missing teeth can have an additional negative effect on a person’s social experiences. It may be common knowledge that the more attractive a person is, the more likely he or she will be able to successfully gain employment. Studies show that dental health has an effect on the outcome of job interviews as well.
The University of Texas and the Columbia University School of Public Health confirm that more attractive applicants are more likely to be offered employment and that dental health is linked with higher earning potential. Replacing missing teeth not only helps with health concerns and confidence. A new smile could also help land a job.
Addressing the Problems of Missing Teeth
If you are missing one or more teeth and want to improve your health and appearance, dental implants can give you a new look and improve your ability to eat and speak. Replacements can also prevent more serious issues such as facial disfigurement and infection or illness.
Dental implants are an attractive, natural-looking option for replacing your missing teeth:
- A dental tooth implant is created for your mouth using titanium, an element that is naturally compatible with your body chemistry.
- The new tooth is surgically implanted into your jaw bone, making it a stable part of your mouth that aids in chewing, biting and speaking.
- The implant stabilizes the bone around the tooth and stimulates the area to prevent bone loss.
Patients who receive dental implants do not have the problems with slippage and irritation associated with dentures. Implants do not need to be fixed or replaced every five to seven years like dentures. Your new smile can exude confidence for a lifetime.
