How Dental Implants Can Change Your Life

Posted on 6/21/2021 by Dr. Shiotsu
How Dental Implants Can Change Your LifeMissing teeth can cause you to struggle with smiling and chewing food. You may also find it difficult to speak well, making you less active, especially in social circles. To bring a difference to your world, you can opt for dental implants to restore your lost or missing teeth. Dental implants can change your life by improving your esteem, appearance, and overall health.

Improved Appearance and Self-Esteem

Lost or missing teeth can impact your appearance by deteriorating your facial structure and smile. Given that a smile is the first thing people will notice when they meet you, you will find yourself hiding it out of the embarrassment of missing teeth. Therefore, getting dental implants will restore your natural smile and boost your appearance and confidence. Also, missing teeth and restorations such as dentures can affect your speech and cause you to mumble some words. On the other hand, dental implants are firm and will allow you to speak properly and clearly, without the fear that they will slip, further boosting your self-esteem.

Improved Overall Health

When you lose teeth, your chewing functions will be affected, affecting your overall health. The inability to chew food properly will hinder you from consuming a balanced diet, as you will avoid hard foods. You will also likely avoid healthy fruits and vegetables due to their fiber content that requires extra chewing. While doing this, you will miss out on essential nutrients necessary for good overall health.

You may also experience digestive problems due to inadequate chewing of food. Thus, since implants have the strength and act like natural teeth, getting them will restore your natural teeth functions, enabling you to chew food without pain. You will also be able to chew food properly with dentures and boost your body's ability to absorb better health nutrients.
