Many individuals consider dental implants to be a cosmetic procedure; however, dental implants can also reduce the risk of problems associated with missing teeth.
In this video, you can take a closer look at the benefits of replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Gaps where teeth should be affect your mouth over time, allowing the remaining teeth to shift or drift out of alignment. Gaps also increase the risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease, as food particles may become trapped within the empty socket. Failure to replace missing teeth may also result in various TMJ disorders and jawbone loss.
Don’t let missing teeth increase your risk for complications. Find out if dental implants are right for you by contacting our cosmetic dentists with South Riding Family Dentistry in Virginia at (703) 327-0327.
