One of the consequences of losing one or more of your natural teeth is that the jaw bone begins to deteriorate: that is, lose its bone mass. This can be prevented with a dental implant from Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ.
When the bone deteriorates, there is a corresponding sag in the face. The more teeth that are missing, the more pronounced this is.
Implants Stimulate the Jaw Bone
Dental implants prevent this by mimicing the missing tooth root. An implant is a metal post that is surgically placed in the jaw. The post literally fuses with the bone, and provides a support for one or more artificial teeth.
Once the implant is in and the artificial teeth in place, ordinary biting and chewing motions stimulate the jaw bone the same way the tooth root once did. This helps it maintain its natural bone mass.
