You know, from what you’ve heard, that when you lose teeth, your smile become somewhat unstable. You have heard, as well, that it’s very important to take steps to replace the teeth you have lost, to do so with the help of a stable solution like dental implants, and to arrive at a complete smile. However, though you believe these details to be true, you’re not really sure why a stable grin is so significant to your life and your oral health. As always, our Cerritos, CA team is thrilled to communicate essential information to you, so you can feel confident about coming in to discuss prosthetic dental care!
#1: Easy Eating Is Essential
Of course, one of the main reasons it’s important to replace your missing teeth with something as stable as dental implants and to enjoy a complete, stable smile? It lets you eat with ease. When you’re missing teeth or you’re dealing with less-than-stable tooth replacements, you may start cutting foods out of your diet that are difficult to eat (or you may simply have an unpleasant time). To ensure your diet can remain as healthy and nutrient-filled as possible and to ensure you can eat comfortably, see us soon to learn about replacing missing teeth.
#2: Comfortable Speaking Means Confidence
We remind you that when you have a smile that is completely stable, thanks to prosthetics like dental implants and restorations, you can enjoy maximum confidence because not only will your smile look wonderful but it will also be something you can use to speak clearly.
#3: Unstable Oral Health Makes For Future Damage
Remember: If you’re missing teeth or you’re using a prosthetic that isn’t what you want or that’s unstable and is causing any amount of irritation or damage to your smile, your oral health is not at its best. The future of your smile depends on maintaining its health today and every day! Replace teeth, protect your jaw health, and optimize your smile with the help of dental implants.
#4: Teeth That Shift Harm Bite Balance
Unfortunately, when you don’t have a stable tooth replacement and your smile is open to shifting, your teeth may move out of place. When teeth move out of place, it can cause problems with your bite balance, which can then promote functional problems like TMJ disorder and bruxism disorder. When you select implants, they help to preserve not only jaw tissue but also your alignment, so these issues do not impact you!
