We are pleased to offer good solutions for folks in our community who have suffered severe decay or tooth loss as an adult.

Tooth Loss Can Affect Your Health

Regardless of the underlying cause, tooth loss can be traumatic enough to go through, you don’t have to let it continue to negatively impact your life.

It may not seem obvious at first, but the health of your teeth does have a direct relationship with your overall wellness.

A lot of it has to do with your ability to maintain a healthy diet.

In order to ingest the nutrients that will boost your energy level and strengthen your immune system, you will need to be able to chew the kinds of foods that are higher in fiber.

It stands to reason that if you are missing teeth, especially in the back of your mouth, this will be tough to do.

You may start self-selecting other (less healthy) options that aren’t such a challenge to consume.

Over time, this will make you more and more lethargic and less and less healthy.

But that’s not the worst of it.

When your teeth have reached the point of decay, oral infections are more likely to develop.

These can quickly spread, leading to problems for the rest of your body over and above loosing teeth.

Tooth Loss Can Impact Your Appearance

In addition to adversely affecting your health, missing teeth can also affect the way you look and feel.

It is easy to see the impact on your smile when you are missing teeth in the front.

You will probably become self-conscious about the gaps, and perhaps even reluctant to smile at all.

But loosing back teeth will also reconfigure your appearance for the worse.

Your cheeks will collapse inward and your jawbone will deteriorate along the spaces where teeth used to be.

You will appear to be much more advanced in years than you really are, and the bone deterioration can lead to further losses.

Implants Are Easy At Clearwater Dental Associates

With modern dental implant technology, we can provide you with replacement teeth that are much closer to the look and feel of the real thing than anything we could have offered in earlier eras.

So, what exactly are dental implants?

Dental implants are small metal posts which are surgically inserted into your jawbone.

The idea is that, while healing is taking place, the implant will bond with the bone in your jaw, creating a new root.

After things have sufficiently healed, a custom crown will be screwed onto the post, leaving you with a new “tooth” that is remarkably indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.

The results are often stunning as dental implants restore a natural, normal look to your mouth.

Moreover, implants give you the ability to eat whatever healthy foods you desire, whenever you want.

And, unlike with dentures and bridges, it will be easy keep your mouth clean.

Plus, you will have stopped the bone deterioration from causing more teeth to become dislodged.
