How Can Dental Implants Improve Your Mental Health?
Everyone knows that dental implants are a great confidence booster. Yet, they play a more significant role in mental health than flashy, white smiles.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Living with poor oral health can leave you in a bad mental state. At FastNewSmile® Dental Implant Center, we know our procedures positively impact more than just your mouth.
We want to take a moment and discuss some of the ways dental implants could improve your mental health.
Dental Implants Feel Like Your Natural Teeth
Dentures and other temporary teeth replacements never feel as durable as the real thing. Dental implants connect to your bone and feel like your natural teeth. Dental implants don’t have limitations and typically last a lifetime with regular oral care.
Dental implants don’t just feel like your natural teeth, but they also look like them. Your mouth’s focal point won’t be a missing or rotten tooth. Same-day dental implants from FastNewSmile® give you a natural, bright smile that gets you in the right mental state to conquer the day.
Less Financial Stress
Dental maintenance is expensive when you have to replace “solutions” to missing teeth. Dental implants are an investment, but once you’ve paid for them, that’s it! As long as you practice regular dental care and stay away from smoking, your implants will stick to your jawbone for the rest of your life.
That means no replacements, simple dental visits, and less long-term financial stress.
Improved Oral Health
Missing teeth lead to jawbone deterioration. This condition can result in shifting facial features that can take a toll on someone’s mental health.
We place dental implants in your jawbone where they preserve the bone and give you an overall healthier smile.
A healthy jawbone lowers your risk for gum disease, cavities, and tooth loss. With so many benefits surrounding our procedure, it’s no wonder that dental implants help our patients look on the brighter side.
Missing teeth often result in a speech impediment. This can easily make someone uncomfortable with their communication skills and cause them to disassociate from their loved ones.
Dental implants fill in all of the gaps that cause speech problems. Let our prosthodontists help you find a solution to your speech issues and get you back out and talking to the world again!
No Eating Restrictions
Missing teeth and dentures often come with eating restrictions. Missing out on your favorite foods can drain your mental health.
While there are eating restrictions the first few months after your procedure, it’s time to eat once you’ve healed!
Several foods boost your mental health, but eating them requires a strong set of teeth. Dental implants give your mouth the strength to nourish your body and mind in the long term.
