The Importance Of Dental Implants

You might be surprised to know that, If you’re missing a tooth, you’re not alone. There are a surprisingly staggering amount of Americans in the world today who have at least one or multiple missing teeth. To be more specific, actually, an estimated 70% of the U.S. population is missing one or more teeth!

For most people, tooth loss will most commonly occur in the molar area on either side of the back of the individual’s mouth. Most folks who lose a molar, since it’s not one of the more visible areas of your mouth, will leave their mouth as is, shirking treatment of any sort, much less undergoing a necessary dental implant procedure. Nobody looks at your molars besides your dentist anyway, right?

So, Wilshire Smile Studio asks the question: does it truly matter if you get a dental implant for that molar that just went MIA? The answer is a loud and emphatic “yes!”

The primary problem behind tooth loss doesn’t really have anything to do with the appearance or aesthetics of your teeth, although it certainly can be thought of as unsightly to have missing teeth by some. However, the vast majority of people see themselves being hindered by a missing tooth only in an aesthetic sense. People are at their best when they feel their best, and they feel their best when they feel like they look their best.

But there are consequences that can come about from letting a lost tooth go untreated. Your alveolar bone, which is a bone that surrounds your teeth, requires regular stimulation in order to maintain its health and structural integrity. Necessary stimulation of your alveolar bone occurs from the everyday stresses transmitted from your teeth by chewing, clenching, speaking, etc. Without this stimulation, your bone will be under stimulated, and it will gradually begin to disintegrate.

Don’t Wait Another Minute on that Missing Tooth

25% of your bone loss can occur within your first year of experiencing that missing tooth alone. This will increase gradually as the years go by, sometimes exponentially. Let’s say that maybe you can deal with the bone loss that will surely occur after you leave that one lost tooth untreated. If enough of your teeth are affected, you can lose them, too, and if enough teeth are lost, your ability to speak and chew will be significantly altered and hindered. Your lifestyle can change dramatically.

Losing this important bone structure can change the contours and shape of your face, the way your lips sit and move, and even your jawline, making you appear noticeably older and less healthy. In worst case scenarios, your bite could collapse altogether eventually. Missing a tooth and letting it go untreated can also promote crowding or ruin your bite — your teeth will shift into new territories. Preventative measures should be taken now if you’ve indeed experienced a missing tooth.

Fortunately, at Wilshire Smile Studio, we can provide effective dental implant procedures that will help secure your oral health, which will help secure your overall health. From your gums to your bone volume, you’ll never be sorry for your choice to replace a missing tooth with a high-quality dental implant. Because your dental implant is fused to your bone, it will help promote that all-important stimulation that your natural tooth and root would. Dental implants can improve both the aesthetic value and the functionality of your teeth and mouth. You’ll be able to eat and speak as you normally would.

So if you’ve lost one of your teeth, even and especially if it’s one of those molars, call Wilshire Smile Studio today. We can help you rebuild your winning smile today.
