Implants help preserve the jaw bone
Keep your jaw bone in good shape!
Teeth transmit chewing forces to the jaw. This maintains the health of the bone and keeps the jaw in shape. If one or more teeth are lost, these forces cease and the bone may slowly recede. This will cause the shape of the face to change over time.
Dental implants can help prevent gradual bone deterioration as they mirror the action of the original root, transmitting chewing forces to the jaw bone in a natural way. This is not the case with conventional methods such as bridges or partial prosthesis.
