It’s no secret that a healthy smile is a happy smile. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, dental implants are more than a cosmetic improvement: they can significantly improve your self-esteem, too. Some adults rely on dentures, but this option not only requires upkeep, but may not to provide the confidence-boosting appeal of a natural smile.
Smiling isn’t just a response to something that makes you happy — it’s a healthy habit. Unfortunately, adults who are missing teeth are less likely to smile, sacrificing the joy they bring to others and themselves. When you smile, your body releases endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin, which can lower your blood pressure and help you relax. Endorphins are also a natural pain relieving agent.
Making the Right Decision for Your Self-Esteem
If you are considering dental implants, bridgework, or another form of cosmetic dentistry, discuss the following factors with your dentist to make the right choice for your health and confidence.
- Do you avoid smiling in social situations because of your teeth?
- Are you concerned about the lasting effects of missing teeth, such as gum disease?
- Do you have difficulty chewing, making meals less enjoyable for you?
