You already know that your teeth affect your bite, speech, and eating abilities. But did you know that the health of your teeth affects your entire body? When your teeth are healthy, your entire body is healthier. Replacing missing teeth sooner than later is important. In fact, delaying tooth replacement can increase wear on remaining teeth, jaw pain, headaches, and other negative side effects.
Jaw deterioration can be a serious concern. As much as 25 percent of jawbone structure can deteriorate within just the first year following tooth loss. The good news is, dental implants can preserve jawbone integrity while also improving bite function and appearance. Quality tooth implants can look and feel like natural teeth.
