The installation of dental implants can help people maintain a youthful appearance by improving the look of their smile, it has been claimed.
News Online reported Dr Cris Piessens, a dental professional from Albufeira, said people should not dismiss the idea of dental implants, even if they feel they may be painful to install or could cost too much.
Indeed, Dr Piessens noted modern dentistry treatments are far less invasive than they used to be and therefore result in much faster healing times and less pain.
Furthermore, he noted dental implants can improve oral health, as having gaps in teeth could result in an increased likelihood of infections.
Elsewhere, New York periodontist Dr Hiroshi Kimura recently told Big News that the use of dental implants could be the perfect solution for someone who has lost a tooth.
He claimed the devices can offer a permanent solution to tooth loss and the prosthetic that is attached can be treated and maintained just as a person would one of their own teeth.
