It is hard to emphasize too often how much of a difference dental implants can make for your oral health—and for your overall health and enjoyment of life. If you are still looking for a 2017 resolution to improve the quality of your life and you have some oral issues due to a missing tooth or teeth, your Philadelphia oral surgeon urges you to consider making an appointment to discuss dental implants.
Why consider dental implants? There are many good reasons.
Issues with Dentures: Many people who have dentures avoid wearing them because they are uncomfortable and/or do not fit well. While contemporary dentures are a much better product, they can still cause discomfort, including moving around in your mouth. Nothing compares to the stability of dental implants, which are surgically implanted, unlike dentures which are designed not to remain in your mouth.
Obvious Appearance Benefits: Perhaps the most self-evident benefit of dental implants is that your smile and face will look a lot better. It is easier to smile and feel socially empowered when you have a full mouth of teeth. Moreover, dental implants will help ensure the strength of your jawbone, which is critical for maintaining the natural structure of your face and avoiding any regression or shifts due to bone loss. Dentures may slow down such facial changes, but they cannot stop them.
Oral and Broader Health Benefits: Among the vital benefits of dental implants is a healthier mouth because they protect and support your jawbone, as just mentioned. Your teeth and jawbone enjoy a symbiotic relationship, so when you lose teeth, your jawbone also suffers. A healthy jawbone is more likely to support a healthy mouth and avoid consequences like additional tooth loss, which may result when that jawbone weakens.
Another vital benefit is that dental implants make it much easier to eat and enjoy food, which means that dental implant recipients are more likely to consume a balance diet with all the proper nutrients. With dentures, it is more difficult to eat properly, which has a rolling impact. Chewing less will make it increasingly difficult to chew, and consuming less food means that you are less likely to enjoy proper nutrition.
Long-Term Benefits: Dental implants are a long-term—even a lifetime—solution for missing teeth, unlike other dental work. A terrific advantage of this long-term solution is that it will save you additional worry about your teeth, ensuring that you can make the most of your life.
If you have been thinking of making a life change in 2017, consider dental implants as an important opportunity to change your life for the better.
