Hello again. Glad to see that you are back visiting our virtual home. The Advanced Dental of Las Cruces blog is a good outlet for us to discuss dentistry-related information and better educate the patients from our Las Cruces, NM dental practice.
One thing that we can do is provide excellent restorative dentistry services, to get you back where you need to be in terms of oral health. This is the field of dentistry that deals with issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, and tooth loss.
In the event that you ever do lose a tooth, it will be scary and painful. But you will need to find a restorative treatment sooner than later to keep the situation from getting worse.
This is because your health and appearance will both begin to deteriorate following tooth loss as an adult.
Your Health Depends On Your Diet
Whether you realize it or not, there are lots of interconnections between your oral health and general wellness. But the one that is more apparent than the others has to do with your ability to eat healthy food.
That makes sense, right?
When you have a mouth full of healthy teeth, you can chew pretty much anything you want to eat, including all the foods that are high in fiber.
Why is fiber so special?
As it happens, fiber helps regulate your blood sugar and helps you avoid unwanted weight gain. It also helps keep your heart healthy., and lessens your chance of having a stroke.
In short, fiber is key to your continued wellbeing.
So, what does that have to do with losing teeth?
Well, if you don’t have all of your teeth, it will be increasingly difficult to chew fiber-rich foods. As such, 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 consumed.
Letting go of all of those fiber-related health benefits can have some seriously negative consequences for your body the longer it goes on.
You Won’t Look Or Feel Like Yourself
Your level of health can be diminished by not seeking treatment for tooth loss. But tooth loss can also ravage your appearance.
People will notice straightaway that you are missing teeth. This will cause you to be self-conscious and withdraw from social interactions. Plus, your cheeks will cave-in making you look a lot older than you actually are. Unless you are already really old. Just kidding. But in all seriousness, it won’t be pretty.
Luckily, with dental implants from Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, you can change your health and appearance for the better in just two brief office visits.
Dental Implants In Las Cruces
Dental implants replace your natural teeth that have fallen out.
Around here, 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 act as your root, at least in function.
The new “root” 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. This is the part that actually looks like a tooth.
After the crown is where it needs to be, you will have have your biting force back and will be able to once again reap the benefits of a high fiber diet.
And, in terms of cosmetics, your smile will once again be without holes and your facial structure will no longer collapse.
Our procedure is easy implants will permanently bring back the look and feel of your normal smile.
