Why should I replace my missing teeth?

People lose teeth for all sorts of reasons: tooth decay, gum disease, accidents/trauma, or simply just wear down over time. Losing a tooth at the front of the mouth could impact your appearance. It will also impact your ability to bite into food properly. Losing a tooth at the back of the mouth will impact your bite and ability to chew your food properly. But if you lose many, most, or ALL of your teeth, this could affect your ability to live a long and healthy life.

As our mothers used to tell us, “your health starts with your mouth”. Just as your eyes are the “windows to your soul”, your mouth is the “window to your health”. It’s been demonstrated in one university-based study after another that people who lose their teeth have a higher rate of heart disease and live shorter, less fulfilling and less fulfilled lives. Imagine not having most or all of your teeth. Imagine your life is based on loose and ill-fitting dentures. No matter how tight your new dentures will fit, they will loosen over time because your underlying jawbone resorbs over time. As the bone resorbs, there is less for your dentures to grab on to.

Then, your dentures (especially the lower ones) will begin to slide around in your mouth like a hockey puck on ice. That’s a terrible feeling-not being about to close your teeth properly or chew your food. Most people who don’t have teeth or have ill-fitted dentures also suffer from poor nutrition. Let’s face it, as we get older, eating food becomes one of the few pleasures we have left. By not having solid teeth, our lives become dreary. We end up eating foods we CAN eat rather than foods we WANT to eat.

That’s where dental implants come into the picture. Dental implants can replace that missing tooth in the front of the mouth or the one that got away in the back. It can replace one, two, four or up to 28 teeth. We live in an age of no limits. If we can put a man on the moon, we can certainly replace all the missing teeth in your mouth. Regardless if you lose one, a few, or all of your teeth, you can have a Hollywood smile with the miracle of dental implants.
