With summer comes barbecues, pool parties and picnics. You can be certain people will want to take photos, and instead of being embarrassed of your smile due to having a missing tooth, you should get any gaps replaced with dental implants.
Implants improve your overall appearance in more ways than simply filling in gaps. An implant stops the surrounding teeth from shifting out of normal positions, allowing you to avoid crookedness. Dental implants also provide essential stimulation to the jawbone, preventing it from deteriorating. By allowing a gap in your smile to stay, your face will age more rapidly, and you will be more likely to develop wrinkles.
When you are self-conscious about your smile, you are more likely to keep your mouth shut during social interactions. You may not want to laugh or talk as often if you do not want another person knowing you have a gap between teeth. Being able to smile big and wide allows you to enjoy yourself more, and even the act of smiling has been proven scientifically to enhance your mood.
Restored Chewing Power
Steaks, burgers and chips are staples at any barbecue or pool party. However, you may not be able to enjoy these types of foods if you are missing a tooth. Although there are other dental restorations available, they may not be as powerful, or they may slip around the mouth. With dental implants, you can eat better and be less reliant on softer, more processed foods.
Take Advantage of All This at Our Office
Getting dental implants from Dr. Candace Colella will first require an evaluation to make sure you are a candidate. If your jawbone is strong enough to support the implant, then our dentist will put it in place. It will take several months for the bone to heal, but once it has, we will then put an abutment and crown to complete the restoration. Contact our office in Coconut Creek, FL to learn more about the procedure today and get ready for the fun summer months ahead.
