Welcome back to Lasting Impressions Dental Care‘s blog! We hope you enjoyed our last post on osseointegration and you are excited to find out more about the wonderful benefits that dental implants can offer you. Dental implants are growing in popularity for many people who have experienced tooth loss or severe tooth decay. Today’s topic will cover how dental implants can alleviate insecurities in appearance and provide you with better overall health.
A smile defines many aspects of human nature and when you doesn’t smile because you are embarrassed about the appearance of your teeth, it can affect how people think of you and affect your self esteem. Dental implants have provided many patients with missing teeth with a set of realistic looking teeth that they can call their own. Appearances are very important in our society because it’s an indication of health. If a person has missing or rotten looking teeth, the perception is that a person is irresponsible or not put together.
Many people do not realize that teeth are connected to your whole body and when they are in a bad condition, your overall body health will be affected. Teeth are rooted and connects to our whole nervous system. Severe tooth decay not only infects your oral health but takes a toll on your body. For instance, losing teeth because of tooth decay will limit the variety of foods you can consume comfort
ably, which can cause malnutrition. Also in some cases, bad oral hygiene has provoked other illness in the body that are not so easily reversed. Prevention is always the best treatment, but if tooth decay has become a persistent problem in your life, dental implants may be the solution you are looking for. Another option for teeth replacement is through the use of dentures, however the problem with dentures is that they are a removable replacement that often appears fake, among other problems. Dental implants not only gives you realistic looking teeth, but it provides patients with a restrengthening of the jaw bone and restores oral health.
Dental implants are an effective method for replacing missing teeth and alleviating the effects of severe tooth decay.
