Welcome back to the Dores Dental blog!
Here we are well into November preparing to celebrate all the things we have to be thankful for in Longmeadow, MA. As dentists, we can tell you that if you still have all of your natural teeth, you should be extremely grateful. Tooth loss can strike suddenly at any time as the result of an accident or emergency. By nature, these are the sort of situations that we just can’t anticipate. When it happens, it can turn your world upside down in a hurry. And you will need to find a good solution, fast.
The first thing tooth loss will impact is your health.
Tooth Loss Can Make You Less Healthy
There are several reasons why tooth loss can make you less healthy. The most obvious thing is the way it affects your meals of choice. Eating a balanced diet will optimize nutrition, energy levels, and immunity from disease but it is dependent on good oral health.
If you are missing teeth, you won’t be able to effectively chew on fresh fruit and vegetables or grilled meat. You will start to miss out on fiber and all the benefits it brings. Stroke prevention, blood sugar regulation, and a healthy heart are just a few of the things that fiber does for your body. You will be forced to make less healthy choices and will begin to feel more lethargic.
Doesn’t sound like a good deal, does it?
While tooth loss is slowly destroying your health and wellness, it will also damage your looks.
Tooth Loss Distorts Your Appearance
It is embarrassing to be missing teeth. You won’t want to smile as much. You may feel uncomfortable laughing, talking, and sharing meals too.
Even if you choose not to smile, your cheeks will still look sunken-in and you will appear to be much older than you actually are.
Tooth loss does not do much for self-esteem and confidence, that’s for sure.
But you don’t have to live like that. At Dores Dental we have a permanent solution for you!
Have you ever considered dental implants?
Dental Implants Will Restore Your Health And Appearance
How do implants work?
We’re so glad that you asked!
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. This is the part that can be seen.
In short order, our dental implants will give you back the biting power required to go after all those healthy food options you’ve been forced to leave behind.
What’s more, your implants will preserve your jawbone density so that you won’t lose any more teeth, and they will add support to your facial structure, making you look younger and more vital.
You will feel like your entire life has been restored when we are through with you!
