Dental implants are a revolutionary way to revitalize your smile. If you’re missing teeth, your everyday activities like eating, speaking, and laughing can be painful and awkward. Dental implants not only look great, which boosts your self-esteem, but they help to preserve your oral health by maintaining proper tooth positioning and strengthening your jawbone.
Your Smile Reflects Your Health
Your oral health is directly linked to your overall health. Any condition that affects your immune system will have negative consequences on your smile. This is because you are at a higher risk of contracting dental diseases like gum disease.
One way to help strengthen your immune system is to get enough sleep, eat a balanced diet, and exercise regularly. Just like how your overall health affects your oral health, it works in reverse too. Preventing dental disease will help you protect your overall health. Dental health is a reliable indicator of a patient’s overall health.
In fact, the more teeth a patient is missing, the more likely they are to suffer from additional health conditions.
Consequences of Missing Teeth
In a healthy mouth, the teeth support each other like bricks in a wall. If you remove a single brick, the integrity of the entire wall is compromised—bricks will begin to shift out of place, and others fall out. If even one tooth is missing it can negatively affect the health of your smile, including your gums and jawbone.
