Is your smile missing teeth? There's no reason to hide your smile. Dental implants can close the gaps in your smile and improve your dental implantsappearance. Dr. Brian Petersburg, Dr. Brian Giammalva, and Dr. Wendy Jativa at Brighton Family Dentistry in Brighton, MI, offers dental implants to their patients. Read on to find out what dental implants can do for you.

1. Improve Your Look 

Missing teeth can ruin your smile and appearance. Dental implants will help you leave behind the discomfort or embarrassment of missing teeth. Dental implants will fill in the gaps in your smile, improve your appearance, and make you look years younger. Dental implants are the next best thing to your original teeth. 

2. Improve Your Speech

The absence of one or more teeth can cause speech problems. If you have missing teeth, you may find yourself mumbling or slurring words. Dentures can also cause speech problems. Dental implants can improve your clarity of speech. With dental implants, you will speak well and confidently. 

3. Help You Chew Food

Some people take their teeth for granted — until something goes wrong. Our teeth help us tear, crush, chew, and break down foods for proper digestion. The absence of one or more teeth can affect your ability to eat certain foods. Dental implants can restore your ability to chew food. With dental implants, you will be able to enjoy all the foods you love. 

4. Prevent Teeth Shifting

The absence of one or more teeth not only affects your appearance, but also your oral health. Without a replacement, the surrounding teeth will begin to shift into the open spaces, putting them at risk for fractures and damage. When your teeth shift out of place your bite may become misaligned, causing problems with your jaw joint. 

5. Prevent Jawbone Loss

When missing teeth are left unreplaced, the jawbone will begin to shrink because it is no longer stimulated by your tooth roots. This puts your healthy, natural teeth at risk for further loss. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that prevents jawbone loss and stimulate bone growth. 

6. Boost Your Self-Esteem

Low self-esteem results from a poor self-image. Low self-esteem can reduce the quality of people's lives in many different ways. If you have low self-esteem, you may hide yourself away from social situations, avoid things you find challenging, and stop trying new things. Low self-esteem can also lead to mental health problems like depression and anxiety. Dental implants will improve your appearance and help you feel good about yourself.
