Losing a permanent tooth is one of the most traumatic dental events an adult can experience. Missing teeth affect your self-image, your diet, and can even impede the way you speak. At the Naperville implant dentistry practice of Dr. Paul Caputo, our team restores smiles to their former functionality and beauty with a variety of restorative dentistry procedures. The most effective and lifelike of these solutions is the placement of dental implants.
The Lesser Known Benefits of Dental Implants
While it is true that gaps in your smile can prove a detriment to your image, missing teeth are far more than an aesthetic concern. Missing even one permanent tooth greatly increases your risk of further tooth loss. As the bone within the jaw deteriorates over time, the connective tissues that hold your teeth in place also begin to degenerate.
Traditional tooth replacement prosthetics – including complete and partial dentures – replace only the crown portion of your teeth, leaving the jaw bone tissue to decay and wither. With the advanced technology of modern implant dentistry, Dr. Caputo can effectively halt this process of decomposition. Dental implants actually stimulate the jaw tissue in a way remarkably similar to your natural tooth roots, strengthening the bone and preserving as much of your natural smile as possible.
