Healthy Teeth Leads To A Healthy Body

Missing teeth lead to malnutrition, which in turn leads to disease; and eventually death. Sounds a bit extreme, doesn’t it? Unfortunately it’s true. If you do not have the proper amount of teeth in place to carry out proper chewing, then the body will not be able to turn the food you’re trying to digest in your stomach, into nutrients it can use to help keep the body healthy, and strong.

This is the primary reason dentists began creating devices like dentures, and using techniques like bridges, and crowns. Sure they help the appearance of your teeth, which helps build self-confidence, and helps achieve peace of mind; but a dentist’s primary reason for anything having to do with teeth is “functionality.” They are always thinking, “How does this help my patients achieve the results real teeth care able to produce?”

Until now, dentures were the only option for a mouth missing multiple teeth. For those suffering from infection of a tooth, and had to have it pulled, your only bet was a crown cemented to the adjoining teeth – this is what is known as a “bridge.” Today, technology allows dentists to drill an artificial root into your jawbone, and after enough time has passed, screw in an abutment that allows a crown to be placed upon it. When it’s all finished, this surgical procedure helps to create, for all intents and purposes, an actual tooth replacement.

Of course, real teeth have nerve endings that supply it blood, which makes it “living,” however dental implants are able to do just about anything a real tooth can do. in some ways, implants are better than real teeth because they will never get cavities. or become diseased. However, that does not mean you are able to throw off all dental hygiene – that’s asking for trouble.

A group I am very fond of is the Tooth Implant Pros. They helped my mother with her issues, and I would recommend them to anyone. I do know they had plans to set up shop in other cities here in the U.S., however last I heard they were only available in NYC. If you are looking for affordable dental implants in Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island, then you may want to give them a call at 718-395-2820
