How to Know When it’s Time for Implants
The health of our teeth is an important part of how our bodies function. When teeth start to go bad, it can affect other areas of our bodies. Often times, we have no control over when this begins to happen as it can be caused by genetics. If you aren’t sure if you’re ready for a dental implant procedure, here are some signs to look for.
1. You Have Trouble Digesting Food Without Pain
Without a fully functioning set of teeth, it’s difficult to chew your food. When your food is only partially broken down by your teeth, your digestive system has to work even harder to break down the rest of it. This can cause you stomach pains during digestion. If you’ve noticed this happening more and more often, then it’s time to talk to a prosthodontist about implants.
2. You Aren’t Smiling Like You Used To
When you’re embarrassed by your teeth, you don’t want anyone to see them. People that are trying to hide their teeth try not to smile as much as they normally would. We hate to see our patients not enjoying their life because of the state of their teeth. Dental implants and single implants replace your decaying teeth with beautiful new teeth that function and look like your natural teeth.
3. You’re Spending Money Trying to Fix Your Teeth
Regular dental checkups are one thing, but when you find yourself going to the dentist multiple times to try and fix the teeth you have left it’s time to reconsider. Spending lots of money on temporary dental fixes isn’t a wise investment. The cost of dental implants is less expensive overall than years of continuous dental surgeries.
4. You Have Bad Breath
Bad breath is a fact of life sometimes. However, if you’ve noticed (or someone else has) that your breath is getting worse, then it’s cause for concern. Bad breath can be caused by rotting teeth. Removing these teeth and replacing them with All-on-4® Dental Implants can eliminate bad breath and improve the health and function of your mouth.
