5 of Reasons You Shouldn’t Wait For Your Dental Implant


Stop Your Remaining Teeth From Moving

Your teeth help keep everything in place. When you are missing a tooth, and have a gap, your teeth will start to shift to fill in that gap. That could cause not only uneven teeth, but teeth that are harder to clean and, in the end, that cost you more to fix.

Save Your Jawbone

When you are missing a tooth, your jawbone slowing starts to deteriorate and shrink away. The roots of your teeth keep the jawbone stimulated to maintain the bone mass. The longer you are missing the tooth, the more the bone will disintegrate, making the implant process more difficult.

The appearance of your face

Living without a tooth can eventually change how you look, especially if you suffer from bone deterioration. The longer you go, your skin could begin to make your cheeks sag, which will make you look older than you are.

The Way You Speak

When you are missing a tooth, it could make it hard to annunciate words, making you sound like you have a lisp

Your Overall Self-Esteem

Getting a dental implant will allow you to feel like your normal self. You won’t have to worry about how you look or how you sound. The implant looks and feels like a normal tooth. No one will know that you have an implant unless you tell them.

These are just a few reasons as to why you should wait to get your dental implant. If you are experiencing any hesitations or have further questions, contact our West Chester office at 610-431-2161. We are happy to ease your mind and get you on track to a beautiful smile!
