Restore All of Your Teeth with Dental Implants
If you are missing all of your teeth, implant dentistry from Dental Associates is the optimal choice for restoring your mouth to full functionality. Dental implants are the modern standard of care for tooth replacement—no matter if it’s one tooth or all your teeth.
Without teeth, there are no tooth roots in the jawbone to stimulate bone growth. Without bone growth, the body senses that the jawbone is no longer necessary and it begins to dissolve away. The result of this is a full facial collapse, making dentures or bridges less effective because there is little bone left to support these devices. As the bone dissolves, facial muscles migrate from their natural position and lips cave in as they lose support. The lower part of the face will also shrivel up to create a witch-like chin, and wrinkles around the mouth increase dramatically. All this happens as a result of missing teeth, and can make a person look nearly 20 years older than they actually are! However, if you choose to restore all of your teeth with dental implants, you can reverse all of these effects.
Health Issues Due to Missing All Your Teeth
When you’re missing all your teeth, not only does it make eating and talking more difficult, but it can cause a multitude of other issues as well. Complete tooth loss and the deterioration of the jaws can result in significant health problems relating to improper digestion, compromised nutrition and inflammation due to gum disease.
Studies indicate that poor oral health can also lead to cardiovascular issues. Periodontal Health reports that the potential effects of gum disease are associated with a greater risk of developing diseases or experiencing certain events:
- Coronary artery disease: 2 - 4 times greater
- Stroke: 2 - 3 times greater
- Adverse pregnancy outcomes: 4 - 7 times greater
- Diabetes: 2 - 4 times greater
- Chronic respiratory disease: 2 - 5 times greater
Whether you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, have a partial or full denture, or are missing all of your teeth, you can easily switch to a fixed dental implant system that will enhance your lifestyle, boost your confidence, and immediately improve your quality of life. Dental implants from Dental Associates are permanent, and they look and function just like real teeth. Dental implants last a lifetime so you can eat, smile, talk and live your live without reservation.
