Thanks for checking out the Advanced Dental oral health blog. We are happy to bring you another December edition focused on getting you the healthiest, best-looking smile possible. If you are searching for a fantastic dentist in Las Cruces, New Mexico, we hope you will check us out in-person.
In addition to educational tidbits, we try to throw in some fun facts every now and then. For instance, did you know that some sharks lose thousands of teeth in their lifetime and grow completely new sets every two weeks? True story. Unfortunately, it isn’t so easy for adult humans to replace any teeth that have become dislodged.
Regardless of how it happens, tooth loss can be a real blow to your self-confidence. And it can be detrimental to your health. You will want to find a solution sooner than later, which is where we come in.
At Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, we can quickly turn the situation around with dental implants.
Total Health Is Connected To Oral Health
We have come to realize that the human body is even more complex than you might think. And there are plenty of interconnections between your oral health and general welfare. One of these should be more obvious than the others, as it has to do with your ability to chew and consume the sort of food that nourishes your body.
Makes sense, right?
When everything is in working order, a mouth full of healthy teeth can chew anything you want to eat including healthy foods that are high in fiber.
Why is fiber so important?
Fiber helps regulate your blood sugar and helps you avoid unwanted weight gain. It also helps keep your heart healthy and helps keep a lot of unpleasant conditions at bay including hemorrhoids and strokes.
Thus, fiber is rather important to your health.
So, what does that have to with missing teeth?
It’s not complicated, really.
When you don’t have all of your teeth, it will be tough to effectively chew fiber-rich foods. Before long, you will have to change your diet accordingly. You will eventually fall into the habit of consuming foods that aren’t nearly as good for you but might be more easily chewed.
Giving up all of those health benefits will definitely have negative consequences for you, as time goes by.
Your Appearance Will Suffer
Now you know how your overall wellness can be impacted by not seeking treatment for tooth loss.
But the effects that tooth loss can have on your appearance, will be just as devastating to your lifestyle.
When teeth are lost in the front of your mouth it is especially 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 laugh or smile any more than you have to. You might not feel comfortable eating or sharing a drink with others.
And, if you are missing teeth towards the back of your mouth, this can cause other problems for your look. Normally, when this happens, your cheeks will begin to cave in adding unwanted years and mileage to your look.
The important thing to remember is that it doesn’t have to stay that way. You can change the story’s ending.
By receiving dental implants from Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, you can radically improve your health and appearance in two brief visits to our office.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Simply put, dental implants fill in for your natural teeth that have become dislodged.
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 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.
What’s more, your smile will once again be complete and your facial structure will no longer sag or make you look advanced in years.
Our team is completely confident that dental implants will come close to capturing the look and feel of your natural teeth, allowing you to reclaim your life once and for all.
