In the past, losing a tooth or several teeth meant you only had two options: deal with the missing teeth or get dentures that may or may not fit properly. While dentures are still a viable option for many people, new technology makes it so that many people are turning to All-on-4 dental implants in Delaware, OH, instead. Check out the benefits.
Improve Your Speech
If you have ever noticed how your tongue touches certain parts of your teeth as you speak, you may also notice you do not speak as clearly if those teeth are now missing. Dental implants provide the structure your mouth and tongue need to allow you to speak more clearly. You will feel more confident as you speak, which improves the impression you make on others.
Eat Your Favorite Foods Again
Missing teeth make it hard to chew some of your favorite foods. If you no longer bite into crunchy apples or enjoy your favorite caramel candies, dental implants will let you bring those foods back into your diet. The teeth not only allow you to enjoy your food again but make it safer for you to do so since you will be able to chew more thoroughly.
Provide Overall Better Health
After a while, missing teeth lead to gum loss, bone loss and other serious health problems. Bacteria that become trapped under the gums can travel through your body and may even attack your heart. Gum disease resulting from missing teeth has also been linked to diabetes and even Alzheimer’s. Replacing missing teeth provides some protection from these health problems and prevents further gum and bone loss.
Enhance Your Self-Esteem
Your teeth are an important part of your appearance as well. Not only do they create a brighter, whiter smile for you, but their structure is what creates your face shape. Dental implants restore your bone structure to fill out your face shape and reduce wrinkles.
