You typically spend the first couple decades of your life wishing you were older, then sometime, years later into adulthood, you start wishing you looked years younger.
Here at Anacapa Dental Art Institute many patients who have experienced dental implants in Ventura have told us that implants have not only improved the way that they carry out everyday tasks such as talking and eating, but it’s also made a huge difference to the way that they look too.
If you’re worried it’s your face that is making you look older, Dr. Saj Jivraj may have just the solution for you. No, we’re not talking about drastic plastic surgery. We’re referring to the age-defying services offered at Ventura All On 4 Implant.
At our Oxnard, CA dental office, we offer dental implant services to patients who have issues with their teeth, including
- Loose Teeth,
- Missing Teeth,
- Failing Teeth, or
- Infected teeth.
But what does that have to do with looking younger? Quite a lot, actually!
Prevent Bone Loss With Dental Implants
When a tooth falls out naturally or happens to be removed the jawbone will automatically start to shrink making the face look as if it has been ‘pinched’. Over time this can lead to the development of sagging cheeks and wrinkles. For some this can be a drastic alteration which can leave them feeling less than confident.
Over time, the lack of bone structure will cause your face to collapse, resulting in sagging skin and extra, premature wrinkles. While dentures can certainly help prevent these negative consequences of tooth loss, dental implants are likely your best option.
Dental implants prevent your bone from deteriorating and your remaining teeth from shifting. This is great news if you’re wanting to maintain your smile after losing teeth, no matter your age. Although maintaining a youthful glow is certainly a great perk! Whilst traditional methods to missing teeth such as dentures don’t address this issue, the good news is that well-fitting dental implants can make a real difference to a person’s appearance and can actually appear to make them seem younger. Let’s see how.
What Is A Dental Implant?
With all this talk about dental implants, you’re probably left wondering exactly what these powerful little tools are. They’re tiny rods, similar to screws that we surgically place in your jawbone.
Implants can then be capped with a dental crown to replace a single lost tooth. If you’re missing more or even all of your teeth, we can strategically place dental implants to hold a dental bridge or partial or full dentures in place. With so many different ways to use dental implants, you’d be hard-pressed not to find a solution that can work for you.
Giving the Appearance of a Fuller Mouth
Unlike other forms of teeth replacement dental implants fit snugly into the gap left by your missing teeth. This gives the immediate look of a fuller mouth and can appear to banish the ‘gaunt’ appearance of sagging cheeks.
Stops Unwanted Bone Wastage
The other major factor that’s particular to dental implants is that they can actually halt the bone shrinkage process. When a tooth is lost the bone tissue that once supported the tooth root is no longer stimulated. As a result it starts to shrink away gradually. This bone shrinkage will over time alter the overall shape of the face. Unlike dentures which sit on the gum line a dental implant is secured down in to the jawbone. Over time the bone tissue cleverly fuses and merges with the titanium implant to create a strong and solid platform upon which to support the crown. Therefore not only can dental implants halt the bone shrinking process, but they can also encourage bone re-growth.
Look Great Aesthetically
Finally if you need more proof, dental implants are by far the most natural alternative to missing teeth. In fact if you come to us at Anacapa Dental Art Institute and are fitted for a dental implant in Oxnard, Ventura then we are sure that unless they look very closely, your friends and family won’t be able to tell the difference between an implant and a real tooth. We use a color match process to ensure that your teeth are well -matched for that seem less blend of artificial and natural. This gives you the appearance of a perfectly natural set of teeth that can ultimately make you look younger than your years.
