8% of the U.S. population have dentures. After the teeth are lost, the jaw bones atrophy resulting in loss of fascial support and the chin becomes closer to the nose. The loss of the supporting structures cause individuals to look a lot older than their age. Dental implant placements and the teeth that are fastened to the dental implants, will stop the bone atrophy as well as restore fascial contours allowing patients to look younger which is evident in the posted photo. Another very important benefit of having dental implants is that chewing is vastly improved for a better more healthy diet. With dental implants, patients can eat foods high in fiber, fruits and vegetables. Johns Hopkins University published a news letter stating of the ten most important health "tips", #4 was, have dental implants placed instead of dentures.
