If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants could be a wonderful and natural-looking tooth replacement option. But choosing a dental implants provider may not be as simple as the decision was to get dental implants. Here is some additional information about why you should choose dental implants and Dr. Goehring as your dental implant provider.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Missing teeth are embarrassing and if left untreated, your condition could only get worse. Replacing lost teeth with dental implants has been a chosen method of tooth replacement for more than 50 years.
Here are some other wonderful reasons why patients should choose dental implants:
In just a few short visits with Dr. Goehring, patients can replace missing or damaged teeth with new, beautiful dental implants. And once your implants have healed, you will experience an immediate improvement in chewing function, appearance, stability and comfort.
Dental implants preserve jaw muscle function, prevent deterioration of the facial structure, and improve facial appearance. The deterioration of the jawbone is usually caused when patients are prevented from chewing normally. Over time the missing teeth and loss of muscle can result in facial collapse. Wrinkles also develop around the mouth which prematurely ages the face. Most patients look years younger almost immediately.
Lost or missing teeth can cause patients to worry about their smile, hesitate when meeting new people and stop smiling freely. Over time this erodes self-confidence and can lead to both anxiety and depression. Because dental implants look and feel like real teeth, patients can once feel good about their smiles.
Improved Oral Health
Bridges can require grinding down of adjacent teeth, so that the bridge attached. Over time, the long-term health of these teeth is compromised. Additionally, pressure from bridges or dentures can cause the surrounding teeth to move or loosen and the remaining gum tissue to erode. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants does not involve the adjacent natural teeth, so they are not compromised, damaged or destroyed. Moreover, plaque, food particles and bacteria will no longer be able to collect in the empty spaces left from missing or damaged teeth.
Reduced Overall Health Issues
Dental implants can help create a healthier mouth and reduce periodontal disease. Recent studies have also linked poor oral health to heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases. Tooth loss has also been linked to depression and anxiety (more on this here, as well), and replacing missing teeth with implants can help avoid these types of health problems as well. The bottom line is that by taking care of your smile, you help to make sure that the rest of your body stays healthy too.
