Your smile is one of your most beautiful features, but when you have missing teeth, smiling can become an emotionally painful experience. Here at our office, Dr. Eric Friedman understands the difficulties that missing teeth can bring. As a premier dentist, Dr. Friedman strives to provide some of the best dental implants in Philadelphia, PA. If you are fed up with your missing teeth, here are some reasons to consider implants. 

 

Preserve Your Jawbone

The longer you wait to get implants, the more your jawbone will suffer. When you lose a tooth, the jawbone beneath it will begin to deteriorate. The tooth root provides stimulation to the jawbone, and when it is removed, the jawbone begins to lose its strength. Unbeknownst to many patients, the same thing can actually happen with dentures. Getting an implant can prevent this from occurring, and keep your jawbone in excellent health.


Boost Your Confidence Level

After losing a tooth, it is understandable that you would suffer from a lack of confidence. Missing teeth can drastically impact your appearance and smile, but dental implants can restore your appearance and give you the confidence you had prior to losing your teeth. Once you receive implants, you may look younger and healthier than before.


Prevent Spacing Issues

After losing a tooth, your surrounding teeth will eventually begin to move towards the empty space in an effort to fill it. This can lead to many severe dental issues in the future, but a dental implant can ensure that your teeth remain spaced apart. If you suffer from this problem, you may be facing future dental issues such as:

 

·         Uneven spacing

·         Overcrowding of teeth

·         Difficulty cleaning teeth
