Dental Implants: The Pursuit of Showing Your True Smile

It is imperative to take care of your physical health; however, people tend to overlook how emotional health is tied to their overall health. In a world that is increasingly congested with everyday stressors, your smile should not be something you worry about.

A single smile releases natural endorphins, and endorphins deliver a feeling of euphoria and positivity. Endorphins are also excellent stress releasers and help you to show when you are feeling happy. Additional benefits to smiling include lower blood pressure and a boost in the immune system. The simple act of smiling is a powerful social unifier; it is a universal expression across all countries and languages.

But if you’re afraid to smile, then what do you do? If you are embarrassed because you have missing, broken, or decayed teeth, then you are probably not smiling very much and are missing out on limitless chances that encourage your emotional wellness.

The American Academy of Implant Dentistry has released a study to show that the number of Americans who are missing teeth, in either one or both of their jaws, is astounding. If you are one of the 30 million Americans reported to be in this category, we can help you find your smile again through dental implants.

Dental implants are often the preferred option over removable dentures or bridges. Dental implants are secure and fixed in the mouth, which is why they look, function, and clean just like natural teeth. This option is often more convenient for people who do not want to fuss over removable dentures.

Each patient has an individual facial structure and facial aesthetic. Since dental implants are custom fitted into your mouth, the result is completely natural. After several months, your dental implants will have healed enough for you to receive your permanent prosthesis. You may also be fitted with a temporary prosthesis, depending on the location of the implant(s), so you can immediately start smiling again.

No one should have to agonize or suffer from oral health issues; we want you to always feel happy with your smile. Dental implants are an incredibly safe and effective way to restore your smile, which will only enhance your quality of life.
