Canaan, CT cosmetic dentist Dr. Thomas Livingstone is encouraging patients to consider the myriad of other health benefits that permanent dental implants offer beyond just improved aesthetics. Patients who opt for dental implants after previously wearing removable dentures often have better digestive health, a more well-rounded diet, less risk of acquiring other diseases that are spread by bacteria in removable oral devices, and overall, a more desirable lifestyle.
Permanent dental implants are some of the latest dental technology available for patients who need restorative care after tooth loss. They consist of two separate parts in their completed state: a small metal stud, or screw that is surgically inserted into the jawbone, and an artificial crown that is attached to the implant that acts just like a natural tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or in the case of denture patients, can be used to replace entire top and bottom arches of teeth.
“Our dental implant patients find that their lives are quite literally changed in a variety of ways after receiving their new smile,” said Dr. Livingstone. “Not only do they find a whole new level of self-confidence with their new beautiful smile, but they also find that they can eat all the foods they want without restriction, have better digestive health, have an easier oral hygiene routine, and overall, are just much more satisfied about how their smile affects their lives.”
Dental patients who have removable dentures are often heavily restricted by the foods they can and cannot eat. While dentures restore some function to the smile, denture patients still cannot eat hard foods like apples and carrots, as well as tough meats like steak and hard nuts. Additionally, it can be difficult to chew fresh produce like leafy greens. A restricted diet not only leads to less-than-optimal health, but can also be the cause of digestive problems. Dental implants patients, however, are free to eat any foods they wish and can consume a diet just as if they had natural teeth.
Additionally, dental implants patients can maintain an oral hygiene routine just as if they had natural teeth, whereas denture patients must rely on messy adhesives and paste, and must also use specific routines to keep their dentures clean. Those who don’t follow regular cleaning routines, however, are more at risk of having diseases caused by bacteria such as MRSA.
As well as placing implants, Dr. Livingstone is also highly skilled in a variety of other cosmetic dental services, including metal-free crowns, Lumineers, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, and more.
