I came across an article in a magazine that said a person with no teeth in their mouth, will have a shortened life. I wondered how that was when my grandmother, who never had teeth, wound up living to age 89. How did she live that long with no teeth? I mean, as far back as I could remember she had no teeth. If that’s the case how did she make it another twenty-five years?
Apparently, it was because of the dentures. The dentures prolonged her life, but they also helped to deteriorate her jawbone. See, according to this article, with no teeth in place, the jawbone starts to atrophy. This is why missing teeth need to be addressed as soon as possible. Even missing one tooth will cause your teeth to start shifting. This shift will, literally, begin deterioration in your jawbone. It isn’t something that happens right away. It’s a slow, subtle process – but it happens, and the problem is, that it always happens.
So if you want to be able to chow down on whatever you want to chow down on, you need to make sure that your teeth are up to code. The pressure of your bite is what helps grind down your food into mush. see, most people in America today do not properly chew their food. Because they swallow their food almost intact, their body isn’t able to digest it properly. When food isn’t properly digested, the nutrients are extracted from the food. This means you can eat a lot of food, and be malnourished. It happens every day in the United States.
If you aren’t able to chew properly due to missing teeth, then cosmetic dentistry gives you several options to choose from. The option I want to talk about today are implants. Dental implants are the best option when it comes to replacing a tooth.
