Dental Implants Can Improve Your Health
Welcome back to our dental blog!
At Historic Triangle Dental Care, our team provides convenient and comprehensive dental solutions for all of your family’s oral health needs.
In our Williamsburg, Virginia office, we offer preventive care, Invisalign short term orthodontics, root canals, and plenty of cosmetic dentistry procedures.
We also offer dental implant surgery, a two-step procedure that can help you restore the functionality and appearance of your smile following tooth loss.
Our team recognizes that tooth loss as an adult is traumatic all on its own.
But this situation can continue to cause major problems if left untreated.
Healthy Bites, Healthy Life
Did you know that your oral health is intertwined with your body’s overall wellness?
For instance, there is actually a connection between gum disease and bigger problems such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
Moreover, when you have a properly functioning set of teeth you can eat healthy, fiber-rich foods.
This may not seem like anything of major importance until you consider what fiber is good for.
Fiber is involved with proper digestion and in regulating your blood sugar.
It is also one of the keys to a healthy heart.
Additionally, fiber plays a role in preventing weight gain, hemorrhoids, and strokes.
Given all that, who wouldn’t want to keep fiber in their life?
The problem is that, once you start losing teeth, you’ll find it increasingly difficult to chew on good fiber-rich foods.
As you begin to make meal substitutions that are less healthy but more manageable, the health benefits will quickly vanish.
You Won’t look So Good
When you lose teeth as an adult, your health will suffer and so will your looks.
Depending on where the tooth loss occurs, it will adversely affect your appearance in different ways.
If you lose teeth in the front, it will be easy to see the gaps.
Your smile will suffer and you will probably become self-conscious about opening your mouth.
If you lose teeth elsewhere in your mouth, the good news is that it won’t be as noticeable when you smile.
The bad news is that your cheeks will collapse a bit and you will look like you are much older.
If you have suffered through the loss of teeth, don’t let the situation get any worse.
With dental implants from Historic Triangle Dental Care, you can quickly improve your health and appearance.
What Can Implants Do For Me?
Simply put, dental implants are designed to be a substitute for your natural teeth.
We install them over the course of two office visits.
During the first part of the procedure, a small post will be surgically inserted into your jaw.
This will create a sturdy foundation for a prosthetic tooth that will be attached 3-6 months later, after the post has properly fused with your bone.
You’ll soon have close to 100% of your biting power back so you can once again eat healthier foods.
Plus, there won’t be any embarrassing holes in your smile, and your dental implants will even reverse your sunken facial structure, shaving years off of your appearance.
