Improve Your Life After Tooth Loss
Hello and welcome to another July edition of our oral health blog!
At Clearwater Dental Associates, we provide compassionate dentistry services for the good folks of Clearwater, Florida. If you happen to live nearby, we’d love to see your smiling face in-person this summer. And if you don’t feel much like smiling these days, we’d love to help you with whatever is going on.
We know that suffering through tooth loss as an adult can be one of the most challenging episodes in the course of a lifetime. It will be painful on both a physical and emotional level. Plus, it can threaten your health.
But we do have some good news for adults who are missing teeth: we can change your life forever, for the better, with one of our dental implant procedures.
Once you are missing teeth, it becomes difficult, impossible really, to chew certain foods, especially the ones that are high in fiber and good for your health.
Odds are you will alter your diet and gravitate towards items that are less painful to chew but not as appealing to you, or as beneficial for your body. We’re talking about junk food as well as stuff like mashed potatoes, milkshakes, etc.
It gets worse! Without teeth, you will also be at a higher risk of oral infections. Plus, the healthy teeth that remain will attempt to shift themselves in an effort to compensate for the holes.
Your Looks Will Fade
Tooth loss can adversely impact the way you look and feel, and the way that others look at you. Your self-confidence will plummet and you will be embarrassed to open your mouth around others.
As your facial structure caves-in, you will also appear to be much older than your real age. This will only intensify your anti-socialness and depression.
But, like we said, there is a way out!
We Can Change Your Life For The Better
Dental implants are titanium rods that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. The implant will ultimately fuse with the bone, creating a new “root” in a matter of only a few months.
After you have had time to heal from the first part of the process, a custom crown will be screwed onto the post, leaving you with a brand new “tooth” that will blend in naturally with the rest of your smile.
You will look younger, feel better, and most likely live longer on account of this simple two-step procedure. Our implants are an investment in your future health and happiness. With proper care, they will last a long, long time, so you don’t have to worry about finding another solution later on.
Make It Happen!
At Clearwater Dental Associates, we’ve got you covered! Not only do we have four experienced and compassionate dentists, between us we also have several specialists on duty to ensure you never need to get outsourced to a new and unknown office.
