Can Dental Implants Save Your Life?

Can Dental Implants Save Your Life?

Welcome back to another December edition of the Clearwater Dental Associates blog! We hope that we will see you in-person sometime early in the new year for your next dentist’s appointment. Don’t forget that most insurance benefits will reset with the calendar year, so don’t miss out!

It occurs to us dentists that we really do have a lot to smile about here in Clearwater, FL, especially during the winter months when everyone else is freezing their, uh, fingers off.

Still, if you have suffered tooth loss in recent months, you may not feel like smiling. And the situation will only continue to deteriorate until you find a healthy solution.

For one thing, your health will go downhill fast, based on what you will be able to eat.

Kiss Healthy Foods Goodbye

Immediately after tooth loss occurs, you will notice that it is much harder and more painful to chew certain foods, especially the healthy ones containing fiber. And that won’t be good news for you because fiber is involved in regulating so many important bodily functions (blood sugar, healthy heart, respiratory systems) and preventing weight gain and strokes from happening.

Unfortunately, you will be compelled to change your eating habits and consume items that are more manageable to chew but not as as beneficial for your continued health and wellness.

In addition to not being able to eat what you want, you might also be at a higher risk of oral infections. Plus, your healthy teeth will attempt to shift in an effort to compensate for the hole in your smile, which will be a real disaster.

And your health is not the only thing that will suffer!

Tooth Loss Will Show On Your Face

While wrecking your health, tooth loss can also affect the way you look and feel, and the way that others see you. Your cheeks will collapse making you look like an older version of yourself. And your smile will be replete with holes. You will likely be embarrassed to be around people, which is a real shame.

Luckily, we can offer a permanent way to save the life you once had! We’re talking about dental implants.

Clearwater Dental Associates Can Help

Following tooth loss, we can implant replacement teeth that will look and feel just like the real thing.

How do implants work at CDA?

We deliver implants in a simple two-step dental procedure.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. The implant will eventually fuse with the bone, creating a new “root” in a month or so.

Once you have sufficiently healed from the first part, a custom crown will be screwed onto the post, leaving you with a brand new “tooth” that will blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth.

In the end you will be amazed by the results. Plus, implants will give you back the ability to eat the foods that keep you healthy. You will look better and feel better in no time.

We make the process easy and with proper care, dental implants from CDA can last a lifetime. As such, they should be viewed as a long-term investment in your well-being.
