Preserving Youth

Dental implants can help preserve a more youthful facial appearance. Our society has become very conscientious about ageing and methods in eliminating the damaging effects of premature ageing. Unfortunately, ageing is a normal part of our bodies and we cannot eliminate the effects of ageing. However, we can mitigate and slow down the process. Many people experience premature ageing due to various factors such as stress or internal issues, or from harsh outer effects such as sun damage. Winkles and fine lines cannot be stopped from ever occurring, but you can prevent them from occurring faster. Prevention is always the best policy in most things in our lives. For example, using under eye lotion in your twenties, will help keep that area from sagging in your thirties and forties. The same can be said when it comes to oral health. Millions of Americans do not have healthy or desirable teeth. This is because many people neglect taking care of their teeth and will experience decay and infection, as a result. Missing teeth and decay can really take a toll on your internal and external body health. Missing teeth will cause depletion in your jawbone, which will reduce your ability to oral function, causing you to lose more teeth. In addition, missing teeth can cause you to have a sunken and caved in facial appearance. Health issues can also play a factor in the look and condition of your skin. Dental implants may be one of the best solutions in instantly lifting facial features from missing teeth damage.

Dental Implants and You

Dental implants have become the most reliable teeth replacement system available to patients with missing teeth because of the many benefits it can offer. Dental implants permanently fuse into the jawbone and creates a long-lasting bond that will promote oral health throughout and also influence the overall health of your body. What relation does this have to do with ageing? Ageing is caused by various factors, but one of the most damaging is not having a healthy body. An unhealthy body can affect many parts, including the main vital organs. This consists of the largest organ in your body, the skin. If a person has poor oral health, chances are that their skin will look more tired and distressed. It will also then begin to wrinkle and sag prematurely.

The sunken appearance that many missing teeth patients experience occurs because of the space that is left unsupported. Dental implants will lift the area and make your skin look more youthful and tight. Having the support of dental implants will keep your oral anatomy and facial features from sagging so long as your dental implants are maintained. Dental implants are meant to last a lifetime, but it is important to maintain oral hygiene to ensure its longevity. Oral hygiene will also ensure that your oral anatomy doesn’t revert back to poor health.

In addition, one of the most important ways to help restore the skin and prevent ageing is by eating nutritious food that will make your body strong and healthy. Essential vitamins from foods such as carrots, celery, or chicken, gives the body nutrition and makes the skin appear more luminous and supple. Dental implants can restore oral function and strength so that nutritious food can provide vital minerals and vitamins to the body. Dental implants are designed to look and feel like real teeth, which gives patients a more beautiful and youthful appearance.
