According to Southern California’s most well-know cosmetic and restorative dentist, Dr. Jack Ringer, dental implants can change your entire life.
Dr. Ringer is the past President and an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and offers a few very good reasons that you may want to consider a no obligation Dental Implant consultation.
A Dental Implant is a post that is manufactured out of titanium alloy. This material is compatible to your bone encouraging the bone to fuse to the Dental Implant making it as sturdy and durable as the natural tooth. Known as osseointegration, once the healing process is complete your new tooth will feel just like your natural tooth.
Once your new Dental Implants have become osseointegrated they will help preserve your alveolar bone. If you lose a tooth or have a tooth extracted you will begin to lose your jawbone because there is no tooth to stimulate your jawbone. A Dental Implant can help preserve your jawbone structure.
Dental Implants help prevent malocclusion. Malocclusion occurs when your teeth try to shift into place because of a lost tooth. The adjacent teeth will try to move into the space while your opposing teeth will drift upwards or downwards to fill the space. Those same spaces can also trap food causing periodontal disease and chronic bad breath or halitosis.
Facial atrophy will occur when you lose a tooth. People who have lost a tooth or teeth will suffer from jawbone loss causing the chin and cheeks to shrink. Dental Implants preserve your facial structure helping you look and feel years younger.
Your digestion will improve with Dental Implants as teeth that are functioning properly will chew and crush food aiding in digestion.
People who have lost their teeth are over 17 percent more dependent on drugs. According to the Mayo Clinic, people who have all of their teeth can expect to live a decade longer than those who have lost more than one tooth.
One of the major causes of death among the elderly is food aspiration. Pulmonary aspiration occurs when liquids or food enter the respiratory system. Having teeth can help avoid pulmonary aspiration as solids can be chewed and properly digested.
Dental Implants will save you money on denture replacement and denture adhesives. Last year alone Americans spent more than 150 million dollars on dental adhesives.
Dental Implants can improve your self-confidence and boost your self-esteem. People who have missing teeth or wear dentures are less likely to smile or go out for a meal for fear of their dentures ending up where they shouldn’t.
