Is your smile missing teeth? If so, dental implants can replace them. Implants are small anchors that are inserted into the jawbone. After Implantthe bone has healed, false teeth are secured to the top of the implants. Dr. Susan Pearson in Silver Spring, MD, offers state-of-the-art dental implants to the patients she serves. Read on to find out how dental implants can rebuild your smile.

1. They can enhance your smile. Missing teeth can ruin an attractive smile. Dental implants can improve your smile and boost your confidence and self-esteem. Dental implants look like your original teeth. With dental implants, you will have a beautiful smile to face the world for the rest of your life.

2. They can improve your speech. The absence of one or more teeth can also affect your speech. Missing teeth can cause people to slur or mumble words. Dental implants can improve the clarity of your speech, allowing you to feel more confident when talking with others. Dental implants will also allow you to talk with people without the worry that your dentures might slip out of place.

3. They can improve chewing ability. The absence of one or more teeth can affect your ability to chew food. With implants, you will experience an improvement in chewing ability. Due to the extreme stability of dental implants, the new teeth are firm and make eating as comfortable as your natural teeth.

4. They prevent jawbone loss. When you're missing a tooth, the healthy jawbone no longer receives the necessary stimulation and begins to deteriorate. Implants are anchored in the jawbone just like real teeth. Over time, they will help reduce bone resorption and preserve the bone. Implants are the only tooth replacement option that stops bone loss and stimulate bone growth.

5. They prevent teeth shifting. When you're missing a tooth, your existing teeth begin to shift over time. If your teeth shift out of alignment, a bite problem may develop. Dental implants will close the gaps in your smile and prevent your existing teeth from shifting out of place. If you see a dentist soon after you lose a tooth, you can replace your missing tooth before teeth shifting occurs.

6. They prevent facial sagging. Facial sagging due to bone loss and a lack of structure due to lost teeth is common. Even patients with dentures may experience some degree of facial sagging. Facial sagging can make you look old before your time. Dental implants can help keep your face looking young and prevent facial sagging.

Don't let life pass you by because of tooth loss. Take the first step towards a brand new smile today. Don't delay- call Dr. Susan Pearson at 301-649-2203 now to schedule a dental consultation in Silver Spring, MD, and get the smile you deserve. You will have a new quality of life with dental implants!
