Do you wonder if they were in an accident?
Do you automatically start making assumptions about their income, level of education and overall physical health?
Though it is extremely unfair, we are often evaluated (and misjudged) by our appearance. Even if an individual is impeccably dressed and groomed, a missing front tooth detracts from the overall attractive presentation.
How Does it Lower Your Quality of Life?
Here is a personal story from a woman who lost a tooth:
I lost my job and along with it my dental insurance, then a month later, one of my front teeth. It has been very hard to find work…. and I know the missing tooth has cost me several jobs.”
Missing teeth can be a big deal. Here’s another experience:
I was involved in a car accident three years ago. Two of my teeth were damaged and had to be extracted. For six months I had a big gap in my smile. I have to make sales calls for my job. I felt so self-conscious it affected my work. I tried a dental bridge, but it was hard to clean. One of the adjacent teeth ended up getting decay. I needed a permanent solution.
Better Than Dentures
Dental implants not only restore oral health, they restore self-image. Permanent dental implants are a long-term solution for missing teeth.
Studies have shown that after more than 20 years, the vast majority of teeth implants continue to function at peak performance. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
