When finding ways to deal with facial sagging, the first thing that you might think as a solution, is a cosmetic treatment – which of course could restore your appearance, but what if we told you that you can actually prevent facial sagging from happening prematurely, by taking care of your oral health?
Facial Sagging After Tooth Loss
The jawbone is preserved through the pressure and stimulus of chewing. When that is removed through tooth loss or tooth extraction, the bone reabsorbs into the body, leaving it weak. This change in the jaw structure becomes visible and it is what we know as facial sagging.
In the first year after tooth loss 25% of the bone is lost and, if unattended, it will keep on deteriorating as times goes by. That is why it’s important to not wait too long and get continuous consultations with a dentist after you lose a tooth or teeth, so that a specialist can evaluate your case and recommend the best type of dental implant or denture options according to your needs.
One of the most successful solutions to prevent facial sagging are All-On-4 Dental Implants.
What Are All-On-4 Dental Implants?
All-On-4 Dental Implants are the most supportive treatment option for replacing missing teeth and promoting a healthy bone structure, especially for edentulous (toothless) patients.
This type of fixed denture is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. By helping to restore functional abilities, such as chewing and speaking, All-On-4 Dental Implants keep the jawbone stimulated.
With All-On-4 Dental Implants, your new teeth will feel and function just like natural teeth. You’ll have greater comfort and confidence when smiling, speaking, and eating, as well as a renewed look due to having a complete smile again!
How Long Do All-On-4 Dental Implants Last?
With proper maintenance (which includes regular cleanings just as you already do daily), All-On-4 Dental Implants can last a lifetime, between 20 to 25 years or more.
All-On-4 Dental Implants Help You Look Younger
