7. You Look Older Than Your Age
When you lose your natural teeth and don’t replace them with dental implants, your jaw no longer has any stimulation. As a result, bone resorption will occur. Your jaw doesn’t just hold your teeth in place, it also supports your facial structure. When you lose this support, the lower third of your face will begin to show early signs of aging. You might notice loose or sagging skin under your chin and on your neck, wrinkles around your mouth, thinner lips, and less pronounced cheekbones.
To combat early signs of aging, upgrading and replacing your dentures with a solution that uses dental implants and/or neuromuscular dentistry can help provide support for your facial features and help you look younger.
