Did you know that smiling releases endorphins into your system? Those endorphins offer natural euphoria and positivity. Endorphins are key; they naturally reduce stress, lower your blood pressure, and boost the immune system. But even beyond those benefits, smiling is the most well-known social expression, unifying different people across all languages and countries.
We have to ask: what if you are afraid to smile due to broken, missing, or diseased teeth? Think about it. If you can’t smile comfortably, you are missing out nurturing your emotional wellness and overall health. We all know how important it is to take care of your physical health, but the emotional well-being is often overlooked. And your emotional health is very much tied to your overall health and long-term happiness.
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry released a study stating that more than 30 million Americans are missing most of or all of their teeth, which begs the question: in an increasingly congested world full of everyday stressors, shouldn’t your smile be the last thing you need to worry about? If you have lost your smile, we can help you find it again through dental implants.
Dental implants compliment every type of facial structure and aesthetic look. Dental implants are often favored over temporary dentures or partial restorations that are removable due to all of the inconveniences associated with them. Dental implants are permanently fixed and secure, which is much more convenient for patients who do not want to deal with removable dentures.
Dental implants offer the most permanent and natural-looking result. After you complete several weeks of healing, your dental implants are completely stable for your permanent prosthesis. Prior to the permanent restoration, you will be fitted with a temporary prosthesis to use immediately so you can start smiling again.
The bottom line is dental implants are safe and are the most appealing restoration method to give you your smile back. Dental implants will enhance your physical health, emotional health, and even help preserve the natural teeth, which protect you from bone loss that occurs when a tooth is lost and not treated. If you are one of the 30 million Americans who agonize with oral health issues, we want you to feel comfortable and confident in your smile.
A smile is worth a thousand words and makes a lasting impression on everyone you meet. Make sure it makes the right impression!
