How Dental Implant Improve Your Health As Well As Your Smile
Fallen teeth not only make your smile dimmer but also cause health hazards. So here at Hudson Family Dental, we thought of providing you a quick run up through various health advantages of what otherwise is considered a cosmetic fix.
Make it easier to eat healthy foods
Missing tooth is often a reason to give up on your favourite food which adds on to the dent caused to your smile because of a missing tooth. But you don’t have to give them up with the dental implants that are as strong as your natural teeth, so you can eat a wide variety of foods to keep your body healthy.
The dental post used by Hudson Family Dental for each implant is made of strong titanium metal, and is surgically implanted into your jawbone for a secure and strong fit. We then place a durable prosthetic tooth on the post, and it functions just like your natural teeth.
Keep other teeth in place
Dental implants are good for your other teeth, too. Just like a missing card in a card castle causes the castle to fall, the same thing happens when you’re missing a tooth. Your natural teeth around the missing tooth no longer have that support and may shift, loosen, or fall out. Dental implants serve as a type of bookend to help keep all your teeth in place and your mouth healthy.
Prevent gum disease and other related health problems
The gap caused by a missing tooth may serve as a breeding ground for bacteria which not only affects your mouth, but also affects your entire body and may increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, or diabetes. Filling the missing spot with a dental implant may help prevent gum disease and keep both you and your body in good shape.
Good for your bones
Without the stimulation from your natural tooth, your jawbone deteriorates and loses bone mass. A dental implant provides both the “root” and tooth to help keep your jawbone stimulated and healthy to prevent loss which dentures and bridges can’t account for.
Boost your self esteem
Dental implants allow you to smile with confidence and make you feel better about yourself. The implants improve your social life as you aren’t constantly worried about the missing tooth and appearance as well as about your speech.
