Can Dental Implants Help My Sagging Facial Appearance?

March 4th, 2021

It’s an unfortunate fact of life that as you age, your face will begin to droop, sag, and wrinkle. This is due to a number of factors, but one of the most significant causes of a sunken looking face is jawbone deterioration. When you lose teeth, your jaw loses some of the stimulation that it once had to stay healthy and strong. That’s why older patients with missing teeth will have a weaker, more sunken facial appearance. Thankfully, your dentist offers dental implants as a unique solution to replace your teeth and prevent your jaw from deteriorating. Keep reading to find out how!

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Titanium is biocompatible, which allows these posts to integrate with your jaw for a lasting and sturdy support. Once rooted in the jaw, they can be used to support a single dental crown, custom-made bridge, or even a full denture. While implants are a newer technology, they have quickly become favored by dentists for the healthiest and most aesthetically pleasing replacement.

Why They Benefit Your Appearance

So, what does this artificial tooth root have to do with a better facial appearance? Well, because they’re the only tooth replacement that’s rooted in your jaw, dental implants provide your bone with the stimulation it needs to thrive. That means no bone deterioration and a younger looking face.

Additionally, dental implants allow you to eat a more varying diet, which in turn helps your overall nutrition. Eating crunchy fruits and vegetables can lead to a healthier overall wellbeing and younger looking skin.

But What About My Other Wrinkles?

So, you’re going to get dental implants to prevent bone deterioration, but what about the rest of your face? What about the crow’s feet that seem to be slowly but surely showing next to your eye? Thankfully, the same doctor who offers dental implants also has Botox! Your dentist is a great place to receive Botox because they have special training in the treatment of the mouth and face. Your dentist can carefully use this treatment to prevent wrinkles from occurring and erase those that are already present.

Who knew that your dental practice is a great spot to rejuvenate and refresh your face? Contact your dentist to get started on a facial appearance that radiates youth and beauty.
