The positive impact of implant dentistry on Los Angeles lives

A full smile with healthy, white teeth is the foundation of good looks. Missing teeth can affect your health, from head to toe, as well as your appearance. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that, when finished with a crown, replaces a missing tooth (potentially for life). Here are some of wellness advantages that implant dentistry brings to the lives of Los Angeles area patients.

Digestion and nutrition

Nutritional experts recommend:
  • Taking small bites of food.
  • Chewing slowly and steadily.
  • Grinding each mouthful until food has lost texture and basically become liquefied.

This process triggers the release of digestive enzymes in the stomach. They allow your body to absorb nutrients from food, converting them into energy.

Even one missing tooth can compromise your ability to chew food thoroughly, leading to digestive upset and nutritional deficiencies. You may find yourself avoiding foods you enjoy, or healthy “paleo” foods such as nuts, raw fruits and vegetables, and steak.

Bite balance

Your teeth are designed to perform as a team for chewing efficiency. One missing tooth, or several, can cause you to chew on one side of the mouth. Teeth wear unevenly, which further disrupts the delicate balance of the jaw joint, possibly triggering TMJ disorders. Symptoms include mouth, jaw, face, neck, and ear pain, reduced jaw mobility, and migraines and headaches.

Emotional wellbeing

Your smile has a tremendous impact on how you feel about yourself, how you are perceived by others, and your self-esteem. Many people with missing teeth stop smiling. The simple act of smiling boosts the immune system, reduces stress and anxiety, and releases “feel-good” endorphins. Dental implants give you back your smile.

I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
