A person can lose a tooth, or multiple teeth for many reasons. An unexpected accident, a simple fall, or an impact of some kind can knock-out your teeth. Others may lose them because of poor dental health. Some suffer advanced tooth decay or gum disease. And for some chronic health issues like diabetes or an addiction to smoking may be the cause.

A True Story
“My uncle lost all his teeth except for maybe two. He used to pop out his dentures on command as a party favor, or just to frighten us when we were young. I was always amazed at how much it changed his appearance when his dentures were out. The whole structure of his face changed. No doubt his dentures were uncomfortable to, as they fit very lose.” – Erbsville Dental Administrator

As mentioned, implants are anchored in you jawbone, just like natural tooth roots. In time, this deep structure fortifies you jawbone, and slows bone loss. Your newly placed teeth also help you speak more clearly and improves your appearance. Implants help reduce bone resorption or deterioration. Therefore, your bottom jawbone remains predominate (natural looking) and you avoid the “sinking chin look”, as the bone doesn’t reduce in size as quickly and over time. The upper jawbone structure keeps those cheekbones from sagging and loosing height. Implants keep your face looking natural and youthful, just an added positive side effect.
