Find the Fountain of Youth in Dentistry
Often times people are surprised to find out how our teeth can play an important role in our aging process. Teeth tend to be one of the first things people notice. When we age our teeth can appear yellow, missing and/or coupled with bone loss can make us appear to have more wrinkles. In fact in forensic dentistry the color of our teeth can be used to help estimate your chronological age. As bone loss occurs the supporting foundation of the facial structure decreases over time. There are ways to find the fountain of youth in dentistry. Our team is trained on the ways to help you prevent the appearance of aging by focusing on your oral health.
- Facial structures are properly supported and in natural proportion maintain a youthful appearance.
- Loss of teeth result in subtle structural changes (cheeks can sink-in slightly) even at the age of 45
- Bone loss progresses, the loss of facial support is pronounced. The cheeks and lips lose their support creating a more aged look.
The continued use of a unstable denture accelerates bone loss and loss of structural support of the face and soft tissues.
