3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Get Dental ImplantsOct. 15 2018
Did you know that one-third of the United States’ population has one or more missing teeth? If that number doesn't shock you, then we don't know what will. The good news about tooth loss (if there is any good news) is that Dean Glasser offers patients a variety of different treatments, including dental implants, to help restore your appearance and jaw functionality. If you have been putting off getting dental implants either for financial reasons or because you have a little bit of dental anxiety, here’s why you shouldn’t wait any longer.
Your Jaw Bone May Start To Atrophy
When you have a missing tooth for an extended period of time, that portion of your jaw can start to atrophy because it has nothing that's holding it in place or making it work. With a simple dental implant procedure, however, we can prevent any sort of atrophying to help restore your jaw health.
You May Have a Hard Time Chewing
Let’s face it: the only real way for you to be able to chew properly is with a mouth full of teeth. If, however, you have one or more missing teeth then you aren't going to be able to chew or even enjoy your food as well.
You May Not Look Your Best
If you are missing a tooth near the front of your mouth, then your appearance may start to suffer. With dental implants, because they look natural and can be matched to your surrounding teeth, you can restore your appearance so that you won’t feel self-conscious.
Dental implants can be a real mouth saver. If you have one or more missing teeth but have a strong enough to support dental implants, make sure that you don’t wait another day and that you schedule your consultation appointment with Dr. Dean Glasser at our Melville office. Call us today at (631) 423-6767.
