2. Prevents Bone Loss
When you lose a natural tooth without replacing it, the bone in your jaw no longer has a reason to stick around. Since it has nothing to support, it will begin to resorb. As it resorbs, it can impact your other existing teeth as well as your facial features. By getting dental implants, the bone will have something to support and therefore won’t resorb. Dental implants, therefore, prevent bone loss.
