Improved Appearance – Missing teeth will make a smile look incomplete with unsightly gaps. Tooth loss can also cause facial muscles (especially those around the lips/mouth, and cheeks areas) to take on a sagging appearance, since the presence of teeth provides support for these muscles. Dental Implants can make a smile look complete, eliminating unattractive gaps caused by tooth loss. The dentures also provide much-needed support for facial muscles to avoid sagging muscles that can make a person look a lot older than he/she actually is.
Confidence Boosting – Missing teeth can make a person feel self-conscious, and can make even the simplest acts of speaking or smiling very challenging to undertake – especially in the presence of other people. Dental Implants replace the form and function of natural teeth that have been lost, and can make a person feel confident once more to enjoy normal, daily activities.
Improved Chewing/Eating – It is very hard to eat or chew without teeth, or even with just several missing teeth. Dental Implants fill out the space left by missing teeth, and replace the function of natural teeth so that a person can go back to the pleasure of eating or chewing food – without any difficulties.
Improved Speech – Missing teeth can cause a person to have trouble speaking in a clear way. Dental Implants make it easier
A surgical procedure used in dentistry, with the goal of augmenting (or adding to) the patient’s existing (and insufficient) jaw bone mass. A bone grafting procedure will be necessary in cases when traditional dental implants cannot be successfully placed, due to insufficient bone mass.
Also called sinus augmentation or sinus lift, sinus grafting is a dental surgical procedure that deals with the lifting of the sinus membrane upwards, creating enough space for a bone grafting procedure to be successfully done. Sinus grafting and bone grafting are surgical procedures that aim to augment insufficient jaw bone mass so that dental implants can be placed and properly supported.
