Implants Can Restore Your Health And Appearance
Welcome back to our December dental blog!
At Dynamic Dental Solutions, our team strives to meet all of your family’s oral health needs all year long. We hope that you have many reasons to smile this holiday season. That said, if you have lost any teeth in the last 12 months, you probably won’t feel much like calling attention to that fact. But that’s why we are here. Your Baytown, TX dentist can set you up with a permanent solution for missing teeth in the new year. We are talking, of course, about dental implants.
When Would You Require Dental Implants?
Obviously, your natural teeth are your best bet, and you should do everything in your power to keep them around. Still, sometimes hanging on to them simply is not an option. If you find yourself confronted with such a situation, we can provide durable and strong dental implants to help you quickly restore the natural look and function of your mouth.
Take our word for it, tooth loss as an adult is traumatic in and of itself, but this scenario only gets worse for you if left untreated.
Health Benefits Of Fully Functional Teeth
Did you know that your body’s total health is connected to having a healthy mouth?
It’s true. But, not surprisingly, when everything is working as it should, we tend to take it all for granted.
One of the benefits of having a full set of working teeth is that you can make healthy, fiber-rich foods a part of your regular diet.
This is actually a bigger deal than you might think. Fiber is involved with regulating your blood sugar and keeping your heart healthy. It also plays a role in preventing weight gain and hemorrhoids. Fiber is also said to lower your risk of having a stroke. The takeaway is that you definitely wouldn’t want to go long without fiber in your life. To effectively chew up good fiber-rich foods, however, your teeth have to be there for you.
If you are missing teeth, you will find this to be an increasingly difficult task.You will start to gravitate towards foods that are less healthy but more manageable to chew. There will, sooner or later, be consequences for your health. We aren’t just making this stuff up. A recent study showed that people without teeth live an average of 10 years less than people with teeth or dental implants.
How’s that for motivation?
Implants Can Help You Look Like Yourself Again
When you lose teeth, there will be gaping holes in your smile and your cheeks will cave-in adding years to your appearance.
If this is the case, you will probably become self-conscious about talking, laughing, and eating, forcing you to shy away from friends and family.
None of this sounds like it will help your social or professional life!
Fortunately, dental implants from Dynamic Dental Solutions can turn it all around and restore your natural look.
What Do Implants Entail?
We can’t stress enough that dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth.
Our implants integrate with your jawbone and essentially replace the tooth root with a titanium post. The idea is that the post will provide a foundation for a crown that will be placed on top.
Final restorations will follow a few months later after enough healing and fusion take place in your jawbone. We always tell our patients that dental implants do much more than fill the gaps created by missing teeth.They help preserve your jawbone from deterioration and restore your normal biting force (allowing you to re-introduce healthier food choices).
Overall, implants offer incredible strength and longevity. With proper oral hygiene practices, your dental implant from Dynamic Dental Solutions can last a lifetime.
