Welcome back to our dental blog!
At Holladay Dental Studio, we are your partner for oral health and general wellness in Holladay, Utah. We want to keep you looking and feeling your best at every stage of life.
That’s why we are proud to provide dental implants, a two-step solution for missing teeth. When you have suffered tooth loss as an adult, it can be traumatic and rather embarrassing all at the same time.
You might not be thinking about it right away, but it will be of the utmost importance to restore the health, functionality, and natural appearance of your mouth as soon as possible.
The Fiber Of Life
Your oral health is very much intertwined with your general well being. Your Holladay dentist can often look in your mouth and see telltale signs of other emerging issues. In fact, there is even a link between gum disease and larger problems like heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, and cancer.
Another way that having a fully functioning mouth is important to your health should be more obvious. You use it to eat! And if your teeth are in good shape, you can eat healthy, fiber-rich foods. If you are missing teeth, you won’t be able to chew such items.
Why is that a big deal? You may not realize it, but fiber is involved with regulating your blood sugar. A healthy heart is also bound up with fiber. Plus, fiber plays a role in preventing hemorrhoids and weight gain, not to mention, strokes.
All things considered, fiber is a pretty big deal.
Once you discover that it is painful or impossible to chew fiber-rich foods, this will lead you to change your diet and lean towards more comfortable items for you to consume. Substitutions that are not as healthy but more manageable to chew, will not give you the same health benefits and could have bad results for you over time.
It won’t be sustainable at all.
Your Looks Will Suffer
Your health will suffer if you don’t seek treatment for lost teeth and so will your appearance. If you are missing teeth in the front of your mouth, it will be easy to see the empty spaces when you smile. And your cheeks will cave in making you look like a much older version of yourself.
This will likely make you want to withdraw from social settings and could harm both your social and professional potential.
The good news is that none of that has to be your fate!
With dental implants from Holladay Dental Studio, you can vastly improve your health and appearance in just two simple steps.
What Do Dental Implants Entail?
Dental implants are substitutes for your natural teeth that are surgically embedded into your jawbone. Our team can install them right here in our office over the course of two sessions.
During the initial procedure, a small titanium post will be inserted into your jaw. This post, which actually looks more like a screw, will create a sturdy foundation for a prosthetic tooth (a dental crown) that will be attached several months later, after the post has sufficiently fused with your jawbone.
Once the crown is in place, you will be back in action!
It won’t be long before you have close to the original force of your biting power so you can once again make healthier eating choices.
What’s more, there won’t be anything to hide about your smile. You’ll be more than happy to share it with friends, family, colleagues, etc.
Dental implants will closely match the look of your natural teeth and can reverse your sunken facial structure, making you appear more youthful and vibrant.
We like to say that it is one procedure that adds years to your life while making you look younger and more vibrant.
