Dental Implants Help Prevent Bone Loss in West Jordan, Utah
When you lose a tooth or have it extracted due to decay, there isn’t only a visible gap in your smile, but also an open space in your jawbone where the tooth once was anchored. Over time, your body senses that the jawbone is no longer supporting any teeth, and the bone will begin to deteriorate as your body focuses on spreading nutrients to other regions.
When you elect to get dental implants, they are rooted in your natural jawbone. This helps preserve facial bone structure and prevent any sagging of the cheeks, lips and chin.
