Tischler & Patch Dental on May 18, 2017

Woodstock General & Implant Dentistry knows that missing teeth can have multiple effects on you. The inability to chew can take its toll on your overall nutrition, as well as your social confidence. There is no better way to replace teeth than with dental implants.  Dental implants health benefits are wide-ranging. They are simply life-changing.

If there is one thing to remember about how dental implants impact your health, it’s that the benefits don’t stop at your teeth.

Dr. Claudia Patch has a deep and unique understanding of the interconnectedness of your oral and overall health and approaches each of his dental implant patients with that perspective in mind. When you don’t need to wear a denture, your self-esteem increases, and this has a big impact on your life. With the right dentist, the most advanced technology and techniques available, and a commitment to great hygiene, the oral health benefits of dental implants are endless.

The Right Choice for Your Teeth

Most obviously, dental implants can improve the health of your natural teeth. Damage, injury, neglect, and decay can be very hard on your smile; your teeth may crack, chip, break, or fall out entirely if left uncared for or because of trauma.

Missing and Failing Teeth can damage Healthy Teeth

These imperfections can harbor bacteria that may increase existing decay or damage, and will also weaken your teeth over time, making it more likely that severe breakage could occur.

Additionally, the condition of your teeth affects the way you chew, eat, and speak. It can also cause chronic tooth, jaw, and neck pain and headaches.

Whether you replace your failing teeth with the Prettau® Implant Bridge, single-tooth implants, or mini dental implants, the oral health benefits of dental implants are tremendous. In fact, dental implants have been changing the lives of our New York patients for many years.

The Right Choice for Your Gums

Multiple studies show that if a person loses teeth due to gum disease, dental implants can offer a new start.

The condition of your teeth is directly related to the condition of your gums and the other soft tissues in your mouth. As previously mentioned, bacteria can build up in the cracks in your teeth, but the risk of further damage does not only apply to your tooth’s enamel. If the condition goes untreated, and the bacteria begin to collect on or around your gum line, periodontal (gum) disease is highly likely.

Replacing damaged teeth with dental implants and treating bacteria-rich hiding places (such as open gaps) is the key to dramatically improving the health of your gums. It is important to remember that even dental implants require diligent care, so the health of your gums is also determined by your dedication to an at-home hygiene routine.
