Welcome back to our blog!
At Dores Dental, our goal is to make our Longmeadow, MA dental practice a one-stop shop for all your oral health needs.
Our services include preventative care, teeth whitening, Invisalign clear braces, fillings, gum disease treatment, extraction and oral surgery, sleep apnea treatment, and more.
These days, our team sees an increasing number of adult patients who have suffered tooth loss.
Sometimes this is the result of a sudden injury, other times it is the end result of periodontal disease.
Regardless of how you get there, once you have lost teeth, your situation will only get worse if you don’t find a restorative solution.
Don’t Let Tooth Loss Deteriorate Your Health
Your ability to eat a balanced diet to optimize nutrition, energy levels, and immunity from disease is bound up with your oral health.
Think about it, if you are missing teeth, you won’t be able to effectively chew on fresh fruit and vegetables or grilled meat. And, it may even be painful to try.
If this is the case, you may start abandoning good choices and going for less healthy options that aren’t such a hassle to process in your mouth.
It is crazy to think that because you’ve lost some teeth, you might also experience weight gain, lethargy, and a vulnerable immune system.
Crazy, perhaps, but true!
Tooth Loss Changes Your Look
Your smile suffers when you are missing teeth in the front of your mouth. Not surprisingly, this can affect the way you feel about yourself and impact the way others perceive you.
No one really thinks much about how losing teeth in other less obvious places can also affect your look.
When this happens, your cheeks can sink in and you will look older.
The bottom line is that no one wants to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance.
Dental Implants Can Help Your Health And Appearance
Great news, right?
But you are probably still wondering what dental implants entail.
At Dores Dental, implants are an easy and effective fix for adult tooth loss.
In the initial stage, we take metal posts and place them into your jawbone through a minor surgical procedure.
In a few months, the implanted post will have a chance to bond with your jaw bone to form a new root.
During the second stage, a crown will be attached to each post.
That’s pretty much the extent of it.
Thankfully, dental implants will give you the renewed biting power necessary to go after all those healthy food options you’ve been depriving your body of for far too long.
Plus, your new dental implants will preserve your jawbone density (so you won’t lose any more teeth), and add support to your facial structure, making you look younger and more full of life.
In short, when we are done with you, you will have a smile that could win anyone over.
