The word “investment” probably brings to mind stocks, bonds, real estate, or maybe even your 401(k). A good investment is something stable that will give you good benefits in the years to come.
With that thought in mind, dental implants may not pop into your mind when you think of a quality investment. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Implants are actually a great investment in one of the most precious things of all – you! This is because there are many health benefits of dental implants, and they pay big dividends over many years.
Call us today at 858-762-9991 for an implant consultation. Take care of your smile and your body!
Dr. Brian Davey and the team at Brian Davey DDS in San Diego want you to know more about dental implants – especially if you’ve been dealing with diseased teeth, missing teeth, or the hassles of conventional dentures.
Improve Your Overall Health
After you get your new implants and replacement teeth, your body’s health can actually improve. You’ll have the capacity to eat and enjoy a wider variety of crunchy, healthy foods that are more nutritious than the bland food you may be used to.
Having new replacement teeth with implants will make chewing easier, which will help your digestive process. Better digestion means the potential for fewer stomach problems and better health.
Plus, your implants and new teeth won’t require any sort of special cleaning. You’ll just brush and floss as normal. You won’t have to worry about excessive buildup of bacteria on your teeth and gums that is common with dentures.
And that means less risk of tooth decay and gum disease that can damage teeth and potentially cause problems in other areas of your body.
Also, without loose-fitting dentures irritating your gums, your mouth will feel better and you’ll experience better oral health.
Keep Your Jawbone Intact With Implants
Have you ever run into an old friend and immediately thought about how old they look? That they have a “sunken face” that makes them look several years older than they actually are?
When we lose teeth, the jawbone in that area begins deteriorating. Without tooth roots to stimulate bone growth, the bone slowly melts away, and over time, your facial structure will change. The result is that you age several years!
However, teeth implants function as replacement tooth roots. They will actually stimulate the jawbone just like your natural teeth to prevent bone loss. Your jaw will be stronger and healthier than it would have been without implants.
We work with a top local oral surgeon who will carefully and precisely place implants in your jaw. As your jaw heals, the implants will chemically fuse with your jaw in a process called osseointegration.
When the healing process is complete, your new implants will provide an excellent base for a number of restoration options.
We can place beautiful same-day CEREC crowns and bridges made right here in our office in just one appointment or perform the innovative All-on-4® procedure to give you a full arch of upper or lower teeth. We can even restore mini implants if you are not a good candidate for standard implants.
And all the while, your jawbone will remain intact!
As you can see, there are many health benefits of dental implants! Call us today to schedule an appointment to learn more about implants: 858-762-9991. Enjoy a bright smile, eat your favorite foods again, and experience better overall health!
