Tooth loss affects much more than your appearance. Missing teeth can make it hard to eat, speak or smile confidently. Once you lose a few teeth, other teeth may become loose as they shift around to fill the gaps left by lost teeth, putting you at risk of losing more teeth. Replacing lost teeth with implants can help resolve these issues. A visit to Dr. Mary Taudel, your implant dentist from Park Avenue Dental in New York, can determine if implants are a good choice for you.
One of the most important functions of your teeth is eating. Tooth loss can impact your bite, which can make it uncomfortable or more difficult to chew. You may have a hard time chewing certain types of food like crunchy fruits and vegetables, nuts or other “hard” foods, which could lead to dietary restrictions. Over time, a restricted diet could affect your oral health and overall health, as you may not get all the nutrients you need to maintain healthy teeth or protect you from sickness and disease.
Everyone has favorite foods they like to eat. Missing teeth could keep you from enjoying certain cuisines. This can affect your mood or lower your quality of life. You may also feel self-conscious about eating socially with others due to limitations on what you can eat.
Dental implants provide a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth so you can eat with confidence and ease. Implants are composed of a titanium post and a dental crown. The dental implant procedure involves surgically imbedding the titanium post into your jaw to integrate with your bone system, after which a porcelain crown will be attached to act like your new tooth.
Implants give you the look, feel and function of real teeth. They’re resilient, natural-looking and stable, just like real teeth, and can provide you with a lifetime of quality use. You can eat with confidence knowing you have exceptional replacement teeth.
