Missing teeth can take a toll both on your emotional and your physical health. Those gaps in your smile are difficult to hide. Your speech is affected by missing teeth, as well as your ability to eat normally. You may find that foods that previously gave you no trouble have become difficult to chew, forcing you to forgo some of your favorite dishes.
But the problems go well beyond social awkwardness and everyday inconvenience. Your jawbone stays healthy with stimulation of the teeth roots through chewing and other common activities. Without those tooth roots, your jawbone can begin to decay and recede, causing more teeth to fall out and eventually significantly changing your distinctive facial appearance.
At South Shore Long Island Periodontics & Implantology, we can give you a better quality of life with dental implants, the most natural-looking and longest-lasting tooth replacement option available.
