Can Dental Implants Change Your Life?

Most people take their teeth for granted most of the time… when they’re healthy you may not think about them that often.  It’s easy to forget how important to our overall health and well being having healthy teeth can be.  If you’ve ever experienced missing teeth from gum disease or any other dental emergency, then you know how quickly these issues can impact your health, confidence, and overall happiness.  Our teeth really matter!  If you’re missing one tooth or many teeth, this can cause problems not just in the short term but also long term complications such as dental instability or shifting of the teeth.  The good news is, you have options for restoring your smile back to where it once was.  Dental implants are an easy way to restore confidence and health to your smile without the hassle of dentures and bridges.  Here are a few ways that having dental implants could change your life for the better.

Dental Implants will help you feel more confident

Maybe you’ve never had to deal with a missing tooth, but if you have had one, then you know how difficult it is to feel confident when you are constantly worrying about hiding your teeth from being noticed by other people.  Missing teeth can impact your smile but so much more… how you carry yourself, your self esteem, and your overall anxiety level. When you’re worrying constantly about trying to hide something that is, let’s face it, difficult to hide, it can impact your overall mental health, work, and social life.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  Dental implants can remove this barrier to you living your happiest and healthiest life. You will be amazed at how much happier you will be when you aren’t constantly trying to hide your smile.

Dental Implants will Improve the overall health of your mouth

Having missing teeth can cause more problems in your mouth than just an empty space.  Missing teeth can cause problems with the remaining teeth in your mouth. When there is a space created by teeth that are missing, the teeth around it may lose stability and start to shift.  You also may start to overuse other teeth in ways that they weren’t intended which can cause other teeth to wear down faster.  It’s important to restore the natural balance to your smile and receiving dental implants or a similar treatment sooner rather than later could be critical to maintaining a healthy smile.

Dental implants will increase your overall comfort

Missing teeth are uncomfortable… there’s no way around it.  Eating becomes less enjoyable and sometimes simple activities such as talking can become frustrating.  Traditional treatments such as dentures are a lot to keep up with and deal with… they slip and move around, have to be removed and cleaned, and are generally a lot more work than having permanent implants.  Dental implants don’t move around in your mouth, don’t have to come out at night, and won’t shift.  They’re a permanent part of your smile.

Losing teeth can have an incredibly negative impact on your life if you don’t take action. Fortunately, dental implants provide a great solution in a way that is convenient, long lasting, and comfortable.
