Implants Can Help to Improve Your Overall Quality of Health
Posted on 7/30/2019 by Dr. Cory Nguyen
If you have lost or broken teeth, you have a few options. You can do nothing, or you can find a way to replace or fix the tooth. One of the options that you have is dental implants. Dental implants provide the most permanent solution, but they are more expensive than some of the other options.
While they may cost more, they also offer some benefits that help offset those costs. One of the ways that they do that is by improving not only your oral health, but they also can help improve your overall health.
The Problems of Missing Teeth
Most people think that he biggest problem with missing teeth is the way it makes them look. People with missing teeth are less likely to flash their smile and may suffer from other emotional problems that result from their lack of confidence in their appearance. Turning to implants can help them emotionally and can bring back their desire to show off their teeth.
There are physical problems that result from missing teeth. Teeth support the teeth that surround it. Missing teeth mean that the remaining teeth lack the support they need for good health. They are more likely to crack or loosen. They are more susceptible to decay and disease. Most people who lose one tooth will lose more at some point if they do not do something about it.
The jaw depends on the teeth to regenerate the bone tissue. Missing teeth inhibit the growth of bone tissue and can lead to bone loss in the jaw. This will lead to more problems with the gums and with the other teeth.
Implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. They are a permanent replacement that behaves like natural teeth. They provide support to the surrounding teeth and they can prevent the loss of bone tissue.
