Welcome back to our oral health and dentistry blog!
At Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, New Mexico, we know that your family’s dental needs can be varied.
That’s why, in our office on Don Roser Drive, we try to make things as convenient as possible by offering a comprehensive range of dental services.
Very frequently we are seeing adult patients who have suffered tooth loss for one reason or another.
When you are in this predicament, it doesn’t really matter if your loss is the result of advanced gum disease, a sudden dental emergency, or some other reason.
What matters most is that you seek treatment.
This is because tooth loss can be embarrassing and a big time blow to your self-confidence.
And it can be kind of dangerous to your health.
That’s why, at Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, we want to quickly turn the situation around with dental implants.
Your Mouth Matters
There are plenty of interconnections between your oral health and general welfare but one of them should be more obvious than the others, it has to do with your ability to eat.
Think about it.
Under normal conditions, a mouth full of healthy teeth can chew anything you want to eat including healthy foods that are high in fiber.
What’s so special about fiber?
Fiber helps regulate your blood sugar and helps you avoid unwanted weight gain.
It also helps keep your heart healthy.
Fiber even helps keep a lot of unpleasant conditions at bay including hemorrhoids and strokes.
As you can see, fiber is kind of important to your health.
But how does that relate to losing teeth?
It’s simple, really.
Without all of your teeth, it will be tough to effectively chew fiber-rich foods.
You will have to adjust your diet accordingly and fall into the habit of consuming foods that aren’t nearly as good for you but might be more easily chewed.
Forfeiting all of those health benefits can have negative consequences for you over time.
Your Look Will Change
We’ve seen how your broader health can be impacted by not seeking treatment for tooth loss.
But let’s talk about the effects that tooth loss can have on your appearance.
Losing teeth in the front of your mouth is embarrassing because this will be one of the first things that people notice about you. It might also impact your speech and your ability to communicate clearly. You may be reluctant to talk or smile any more than you have to.
However, if you are missing teeth towards the back of your mouth, this can cause other problems for your look.
Usually when this happens, your cheeks will begin to cave in to the point that when you gaze in the mirror you will appear to have aged significantly.
But it doesn’t have to end that way.
With dental implants from Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, you can change your health and appearance for the better in two brief office visits.
What Do Dental Implants Entail?
Dental implants fill in for your natural teeth that have become dislodged.
Implants are surgically inserted into your jawbone in a two-step procedure.
First, a small titanium post will be inserted into your jaw. This will mimic your root in function.
This post will create a solid foundation for the visible crown that will be attached during your second office visit sometime after the post has fused with your bone.
Once the crown is in place, you will have have your biting force restored and will be able to once again reap the benefits of a high fiber diet.
Plus, your smile will once again be complete and your facial structure will no longer sag.
We are completely confident that our implants will come close to capturing the look and feel of your natural teeth.
