How Dental Implants In Richmond Can Improve Your Quality Of Life
People seeking dental implants in Richmond do so for a variety of reasons. It could be that an individual has been involved in a sports accident and has suffered missing teeth because of it. It might be because a person has had a penchant for way too many sugary foods in the past which in turn has caused dental problems. Alternatively it could be because they’re long-term denture wearers and are desperate to try a more permanent and user-friendly option. Whatever the reason, one thing’s for sure, having dental implants changes lives in many positive ways. Here’s how!
Tooth loss is going to cause eating problems and that’s a fact! Even if it’s just one missing tooth, it’s possible that you may still have difficulty in chewing. Undigested food that sits in the gut can lead to problems such as indigestion, bloating and stomach pain. When food is chewed thoroughly, not only does it pass through the body harmlessly but the body can also extract the relevant nutrients out of the food, making you feel more healthy.
The majority of people who come to Sheen Dental for dental implants in Richmond say that they long to get their smile back. Often when people experience missing teeth it can cause them to cover their face when talking or worse still, shy away from social situations altogether. Dental implants are about as close to natural looking teeth as modern dentistry allows and because of this, implants not only have the ability to bring back a natural looking smile, but can also help to restore some much-needed self-confidence.
Improved younger looks
When we loose a tooth or teeth, the bone tissue that once surrounded the tooth root starts to dissolve. This is a process known as resorption. Over time it can alter the shape of your jawbone, eventually causing the face to appear ‘pinched in’ and saggy. This gives the impression that the person is a lot older than their years. When dental implants are placed, the titanium rod mimics the tooth root because it is secured into the jaw bone. As a result the natural bone tissue is at once re-stimulated in a process known as osseointegration. So not only are the teeth replaced giving the impression of a fuller mouth, but the re-stimulation process can actually regrow bone, giving the wearer an overall younger appearance. Yes implants really can make you appear ten years younger!
