Upper East Side Dental Implants | Manhattan Dentistry
A healthy smile begins with healthy teeth. However, many factors contribute to the health of your teeth. Genetics, disease, improper brushing, and age are a few. Missing one, few, or all your teeth can take a toll on your self-esteem. Luckily, with an experienced dentist, like Dr. Lattinelli and his team, you can have that charming smile and your confidence back with dental implants! Below are five real benefits of dental implants:
#1-Fountain of Youth: Aging causes us to lose teeth and bone structure as well. This loss of bone structure causes the skin around our mouth, cheeks, and eyes to appear looser and more wrinkled. Dental implants will not only replace your weak teeth, but make that skin surrounding tight again. You no longer need to hide your smile but instead can confidently let that smile shine. Plus, you will look and feel more youthful.
#2 & #3-Get Noticed in your Career and Relationship: This is science backed. Don’t hide your smile. It is scientifically proven that those who smile more get noticed. Studies have shown that employers tend to promote people who smile more. Plus, a research study found that most men found women who were not wearing makeup at all, but smiling, to be more attractive than women with great makeup on and hiding their smile. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to get promoted or meet someone new because you were too afraid to smile. Gain your confidence back with dental implants.
#4-Get Fit: Often our food choices are based on what is more comfortable to chew rather than its health benefits. Missing teeth may be painful or make it difficult to enjoy those healthier food options. Just like the bones in our bodies stay strong and healthy with exercise, the same goes for your jaw bones. Chewing healthy foods, proper care and regular visits to your dentist will help you enjoy healthier meal plans which in return will contribute to better overall health.
Too often a tooth is lost because of a mouth injury, caused from a fall or biting into something too hard. A dental implant is a great correction to this issue. You can replace one single tooth because the implant is anchored directly into the jaw, without affecting any surrounding healthy teeth.
#5- Stop and Reverse Osteoporosis and Bone Loss: Women and men are affected by Osteoporosis (the loss of bone material in our bodies). The first sign of deterioration is often in the jaw.
A healthy diet and exercise are beneficial at all ages, but also for our smiles. The healthier our teeth, the more we have, the better we can chew, thus the stronger our jaw bones. Dental implants have proved to slow, stop and even reverse bone loss in adults. They also assist in keeping the surrounding teeth strong and healthy.
