Surprising Benefits Of Dental Implants [BLOG]
At Dores Dental, we are big believers in the benefits that a dental implants procedure can bring to our adult patients who are living without a complete set of teeth. Whether you’re missing one tooth, a few teeth, or all your teeth, our dental implants could give you back everything you’ve been missing, and we’re not just talking about the teeth themselves. We’re also ready to restore your health, appearance, self-confidence, and more. So, when you are finished reading today’s post, be sure to call our East Longmeadow, MA dentist’s office at 413-241-3995 about scheduling a consultation appointment regarding this incredible restorative dentistry solution.
Implants Act Like Real Teeth
Modern dental implants work in a completely different way than any other tooth replacement option that has come before. Here’s why: they are actually inserted into your jawbone and physically become part of your body. They make for a strong anchor because they don’t merely rest on top of your gums like conventional dentures. What’s more, they don’t rely on other teeth to stay in place, like bridges. When topped with dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or dentures, they have the capacity to look and function like real teeth.
You’ll Be Able To Eat And Speak Without Reservation
Finally, you can eat whatever foods you want again, not just the soft things that are easy to get down. Plus, with implants, your teeth won’t come out with your food or end up in your wine glass! They’ll stay right where they’re supposed to. And you won’t need adhesives to keep them there. You’ll also be able to speak clearly again. You won’t have to slur your words or worry that your “falsies” will come out when you talk.
Dental Implants Preserve Your Health
As the AAID will tell you, dental implants are designed to bond right to your bone. As such, they transfer the pressure of chewing to that bone, just like natural, healthy teeth would do. In turn, that pressure stimulates the bone and keeps it strong. That’s a huge benefit for people who are missing teeth.
Another benefit is that single implants don’t affect nearby teeth. Remember, a regular bridge must be attached to nearby teeth, and those teeth have to be shaved down for the bridge to fit on them. If those teeth decay or fail, the bridge does too. That won’t be a fun situation for you to work through. But, what we are trying to say is that implants keep your other, healthy teeth intact, so you won’t have to worry about such troubles.
Also, if you are missing teeth, you tend to go for carb-heavy diets and skip crunchy, nutritious foods, like fruits and vegetables. A diet lacking the right nutrients can lead to poor health before too long. Plus, not being able to chew food properly because of dental problems can lead to digestion problems. Dental implants can help you eat the foods you need for the nutrition your body needs. This is probably the best thing overall about implants.
You’ll Look Younger And Live Longer
We already talked about the health benefits that ought to extend your life by a number of years, all things considered. And you’ll love the way you’ll look all the while. Anyone who is missing many teeth or all their teeth will automatically look older because tooth loss is associated with aging. But that’s not all that is going on.
You see, wrinkles will start to develop around your face, and eventually, your cheeks can take on a caved-in look. That’s in part because the teeth aren’t physically there to fill out the mouth, and also because the bone is slowly dissolving. However, implants can restore your more youthful appearance, allowing you to recover your pride in the process.
