Enhance Your Quality Of Life and Overall Heath with Dental Implants
Tooth loss can occur for many reasons, but irrespective of whether it’s through bad dietary decisions, an accident or simply through old age it can give both your confidence and self esteem a real knock. For this reason you may want to consider dental implants. In Richmond here at Sheen Dental we’ve been successfully restoring people’s smiles and indeed their self confidence through dental implant surgery for many years and know the true benefits that they can bring. So how do implants actually improve your quality of life? Let’s take a look!
Although it’s fair to say that both dentures and crowns also give you the ability to smile again, there’s nothing in modern dentistry that looks, feels and acts like your real teeth except dental implants. This means that you don’t need to take them out at night, you don’t need a continual supply of expensive cleaning solvents, and you don’t need to apply fixative to hold them in place. Instead once inserted into the jaw bone (provided that good oral care is taken) implants will remain in place for many years to come. Therefore you should be able to bite into that apple, or chew on that piece of steak just as you would if you had normal healthy teeth without fear of damaging them. Aside from this you can feel safe in the knowledge that you can speak or exercise normally without fear of slippage or denture fall out. As you can see, dental implants can give you back your confidence in more ways than you think.
Whilst dental implants in Richmond can help you to overcome the fears and anxieties that tooth loss can bring they can also help your overall health too.
Better diet choices
We’ve already stated that implants give you the freedom to eat what you like, when you like and invariably this means better diet choices. Lean meats, fresh fruit, vegetables and nuts are essentially food choices that can make for a healthy diet. However they require more chewing which doesn’t always sit well with other forms of tooth replacement. This is why many tooth loss sufferers often prefer to eat softer foods, some of which may be easier to chew, but mightn’t be as healthy.
Unlike any other form of tooth replacement, dental implants have the ability to stimulate and rejuvenate bone growth which naturally starts to diminish after tooth loss. When bone loss is allowed to continue then over a long period of time it can lead to a change in facial features giving the person an appearance of someone who looks older than they actually are. When dental implants are inserted into the jaw bone not only can they halt this degeneration process and start to stimulate new bone growth, but from an appearance perspective give the patient a full set of teeth once more, making them appear more youthful.
To ensure that you are able to enjoy that perfect smile with all the health and lifestyle benefits that comes with it, then there’s nothing better than a dental implant.
