The Impact of Long-Term Thinking on Your Oral Health

What’s on your wish list? Having one helps when it’s your birthday, during the holidays, or when planning your New Year goals.

Some items are perpetual. Yet health related ones – especially missing teeth replacement – should be prioritized.

We’ve talked about alternatives for tooth loss. Bridges and dentures come to mind along with dental implants.

It’s time to think long-term

Keep your long-term thinking simple for the moment. Let’s consider the next 12 months.

You could begin to transform your oral health care in a shorter time span. For instance, use the New Year as a springboard basic dental hygiene habits (consistent brushing, flossing, and exams and check-ups every six months).

There’s still the issue of your missing or damaged teeth. This takes a longer view of things. But don’t fret.

There are no “quick” fixes. Especially those that deliver cost effective, lifelong benefits.

Starting now, explore dental implant treatment as the most viable option for missing teeth replacement. You can begin to experience noticeable results in a few months.

Damage “control”

Out-sight-out-of-mind is a common mindset. But it’s not healthy when you have missing or damaged teeth.

What you can’t see could be “hurting” you. The issue is the void left by a missing tooth.

You teeth can shift. This causes a number of dental issues.

One common problem is malocclusion. Your teeth can become misaligned.

Misalignment can cause your teeth to become crowded or crooked. Malocclusion is treatable with orthodontic braces.

It’s important to deal with your missing teeth sooner rather than later. A dental implant provides cost effective, long term damage control.

Look good

Gaps and voids caused by missing teeth are treatable. That said it’s easy to grow accustomed to the damage done.

You’ve discovered that doing so can lead to more significant tooth problems. Besides it’s healthy for your body and your esteem to replace your missing tooth or teeth.

Dental implants provide an attractive tooth replacement solution . Implant treatment restores your smile.

Implants are designed to look like your natural teeth. And they’re a healthier alternative because they actually help restore your jaw’s bone health.

Feel good

Health should improve your confidence. Oral health conditions like tooth loss or tooth damage can lead to reduced confidence.

Increase your self-esteem with a proven treatment for missing teeth. Dental implants restore your oral health and with it your sense of well-being.

The treatment process reveals the benefit of good oral health too. And it affirms the value of taking personal responsibility for it.

Decide now that this will be the year you take control. Fill the gaps caused by your missing teeth.

Introduce yourself to a renewed appearance and sense of well-being. Dental implant treatment is a good, long-term investment in a new you.
