Will Dental Implants Lift My Face?

Dental Implant dental implant2Dental implants have wide-reaching benefits for a patient, including cosmetic enhancement. After suffering from tooth loss, it is not uncommon for the cheeks to appear hollow and the face to look gaunt. The cosmetic effects of dental implants can be as transformative on a person’s self-esteem as the implants are on their oral health.

The Effects of Dental Implants on Facial Symmetry

When someone loses teeth, their jawbone subsequently loses stimulation through mastication (chewing). As a result, minerals in the jaw bone are reabsorbed by the body, which breaks down the bone and eventually causes the sagging, hollow effects so many people experience.

Dental implants restore structure to the jaw, which in turn lifts the face and improves symmetry and facial proportions.

Can Dental Implants Change Your Face Shape?

Many patients are delighted to find that dental implants elevate their cheekbones. This can lead to a more angular, proportionate face. While many patients think a facelift can resolve their issues, they often do not realize what a role their mouth plays in their appearance.

Dr. Koning uses implants and other restorative techniques for his non-surgical facelift procedure. This helps patients achieve a more youthful, symmetrical face while improving tooth and jaw function.

It’s important to note that cosmetic dental implants enhance more than facial esthetics — they can dramatically improve a person’s functionality, lower their risk of oral health problems, and prevent inevitable bone loss from missing teeth.

Are Dental Implants Safe?

Some patients have concerns over dental implants because the screw is made of titanium. This metal is not considered toxic, therefore it is suitable for medical use. However, there are such things as metal-free dental implants, which are made from zirconia.

Generally speaking, dental implants are safe, and the procedure carries minimal risk. However, as with any dental surgery, there could be irritation, bleeding, swelling, and infection after placement.

Dr. Konig carefully works with each patient to maximize outcomes and reduce any risks they may face from their procedure.
