Smiling is the best cure for any kind of sickness. It brings people closer, it makes your life better and it is the first sign of happiness. But what happens when the years have robbed you from your smile? Even if inside you feel like dancing and jumping around, your teeth might have another opinion. Luckily, thereâ€™s a solution for everything, including bringing your smile back. And thereâ€™s more to these solutions than dentures.
Teeth Loss â€“ An Issue You Donâ€™t Have to Face Alone
According to a study made by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention, over one quarter of the people over 65 have lost their teeth in proportion of 100%. Dental implants come as the best solution to bring your smile back, since they are much more comfortable than the dentals and they look much more natural as well.
Teeth loss is not merely just a cosmetic issue. It is a matter of changing your lifestyle: the ability to chew will decrease and thereâ€™s high chance that speech problems will appear.
Dentures are not the best solution to the issue of teeth loss. Most patients say that their dentures either donâ€™t help their chewing much, or that they chew better without (!) their teeth.Â Also, dentures stop the blood flow and they can cause bone loss and they are extremely uncomfortable, which causes even more speech problems. Furthermore, thereâ€™s something unnatural about dentures that does not look appealing to most people.
On the other hand, dental implants have become easier since the apparition of the CT (Computerized Tomography). A dental implant will look and feel like a real tooth and it will literally take years off your age.
Dental Implants â€“ What are they and how can They Help You?
A dental implant is made out of a titanium cylinder and it simulates the functions of a real tooth. Thereâ€™s the possibility of having one implant, multiple implants, or, if you want to, you can replace your entire denture.
The best thing about dental implants is the fact that, unlike their old-fashioned â€œsiblingsâ€, they do not cause bone loss. Even more, they actually help prevent it! Because of the cylinder implanted into your jawbone, the implant will transmit force into it and therefore it will act the same way a real tooth would. Moreover, dental implants have sometimes even reversed the bone loss process!
Thereâ€™s no need to worry; the fact that you have reached a certain age should NEVER mean that you have to give up on the things you like: friends, family, eating out or simply chatting with your neighbor. Dental implants can solve the speech issues, the bone issues, the chewing issues and, last but not least, the cosmetic issues you have to face together with your teeth loss.
Donâ€™t hesitate to bring back the years and offer yourself the chance to happiness! A smile is worth a million, they say, and you should always keep this in mind. Dental implants are all worth it!
