How is cosmetic dentistry related to overall health?
Cosmetic dentistry boosts self-confidence by offering a brighter, straighter, healthier smile. Most importantly cosmetic dentistry improves oral health, which is directly related to one’s overall health and well-being.
Dental Implants Prevent Bone Loss
World Health Organization reports that nearly 20% of people will experience dental trauma at some point in their lifetime. When you lose a tooth, the jawbone will lose up to 25% of its mass in the first year, and bone loss will increase as time goes on. This bone loss results in a changed facial shape, similar to a witch silhouette, and has a negative effect on overall oral health.
In addition, bone loss has a negative effect on you overall health. Dr. Preston Burns, III, has extensive knowledge and expertise on implant placement and will explain the procedure and what you can expect afterwards.
Orthodontics Improve Overall Oral Health
Crooked teeth and misaligned bites are known to cause headaches and jaw pain. This makes everyday tasks such as eating, and even sleeping, uncomfortable. Crowded teeth often cause difficulties brushing and flossing, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.
Our orthodontic treatment plans use SureSmile clear aligners which are perfectly discrete and require little to no lifestyle changes during the treatment process. As a result, orthodontic treatment has become more common in adult patients. Request your appointment today.
Veneers Provide a Perfect Smile
Many studies have found that poor oral health is associated with increased stress, depression, and low self-esteem. Stained, misshaped, cracked or gapped teeth can be easily corrected with veneers.
Our team at Burns Family Dentistry will walk you through the options of composite and porcelain veneers and recommend which option would be better suited for you. Contact us for an evaluation and see what we can do for you!
