Tooth Loss and Your Health in Ellicott City, MD

Restore Your Smile for Your Health

There’s no denying that missing teeth can affect our confidence. If you have a prominent missing tooth, you may feel self-conscious when you smile. You might even notice that it impacts the way you chew and your ability to speak. Along with these day-to-day disturbances, there’s also a distinct connection between tooth loss and your overall health. 

Here at Julian Center for Dental Implants, we offer metal-free zirconia dental implants as a holistic approach to dental care. Learn more about how these custom-made dental implants can replace your missing teeth and improve your overall health. 

How Adults Lose Teeth

Adults lose teeth for all kinds of reasons, and sometimes those reasons are out of your control. Some of the most common causes for adult tooth loss include:

  • Gum disease
  • Cavities
  • Physical injury or trauma
  • Poor nutrition
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension 
  • Arthritis
  • Smoking
  • Genetics 

Our team at Julian Center for Dental Implants can help you restore your smile, regardless of why you’re missing teeth. With proper care, you can enjoy the health and social benefits of your new dental implants for a lifetime. 

How Can Tooth Loss Affect Your Health?

Believe it or not, your oral health can play a big role in your well-being. So when you’re missing a tooth, it’s best to take a look at your overall health. 

Tooth loss has been linked to:

  • Gum disease
  • Heart disease
  • Poor oral health
  • Poor nutritional choices  
  • Diabetes
  • An increased risk for kidney disease 
  • An increased risk of oral infection
  • Weakening of the jawbone
  • Loss of functionality 

When you eat, the environment inside your mouth becomes more acidic. Since the standard American diet is very acidic, harmful bacteria are able to thrive in our mouths. Practicing good oral hygiene helps fight these bacteria and prevent tooth loss. But if you’ve already lost a tooth, dental implants can help you get your health back on track. 

Long-Term Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are great for restoring your smile. Here at our Ellicott City office, we offer metal-free, all-ceramic dental implants to replace your missing teeth. This restorative treatment allow you to live your life without restrictions. 

Here are a few long-term benefits of dental implants:

  • Keeping your mouth healthy. When teeth are missing, your jawbone stops regenerating. Dental implants prevent bone deterioration and stimulate cell growth.
  • Recovering lost tooth function. Your dental implants are securely anchored to your jaw. Therefore, you can eat without restrictions and focus on enjoying a healthy diet.
  • The emotional effects of a confident smile. When you look good, you feel good. When you can smile with confidence, knowing no one will see any missing teeth, your confidence will improve. 

Our patients report feeling very satisfied with their dental implants. When you replace missing teeth with our metal-free dental implants, you’ll feel a boost in confidence as well as your overall health. Don’t let your health suffer any longer.
