Benefits of Dental Implants at Signature Smiles
Despite an increased awareness over the years of the importance of proper dental care, millions of Americans still suffer tooth loss. This is mostly attributed to periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury. It used to be that the only treatment options for tooth loss were bridges and dentures. However, Signature Smiles offers a more effective option with dental implants.
Dental implants are titanium posts used to create a tooth root. At Signature Smiles, our Houston dentists surgically position the titanium post below the gum line, thus creating a stable foundation for artificial teeth.
Dental implants Increase Self Confidence
Having a missing tooth can be embarrassing. People with a missing tooth are often reluctant to smile because the gap caused by the missing tooth is hard for anyone to not notice. Constantly feeling self-conscious about one’s teeth can often lead to self-esteem issues.
Thankfully, any one of our Houston offices located in The Heights, Humble, and The Woodlands can easily resolve this issue through dental implants. With dental implants, unsightly gaps caused by missing teeth are filled. In addition, the look, feel, and function of dental implants are exactly as those of healthy, natural teeth.
Dental Implants Improve Digestion
Properly chewing food is imperative to good digestion. Missing teeth impair the initial step of digestion because food is not broken down properly. As a result, essential starches and nutrients are not fully utilized. In addition, when one is not able to chew properly, swallowing can become difficult. When swallowing becomes difficult, the entire digestive system is negatively affected.
Having a missing tooth can be both embarrassing and detrimental to overall health. However, dental implants give you a full set of teeth that not only restore your smile, but also give you the necessary biting force for proper chewing and digestion. Contact one of our offices serving the Greater Houston area today, so we can get you on your way to a great smile and better overall health.Previous Post Next Post
