Replacing missing teeth with dental implants may help improve your health

If your remaining teeth, bridgework or dentures are failing you, it may be a good time to consider the TeethXpress dental implants procedure.

Individuals who choose to replace their missing teeth using the TeethXpress dental implant procedure have virtually no limits on their food choices. In fact, it’s dental implants that make it possible for these individuals to have healthy and nutrient-rich diets.

In Peggy’s situation, at age 72, health problems and several medications had taken a toll on her dental health. Peggy had constant dental pain and couldn’t chew properly with her remaining teeth. Consequently, her food choices were very limited.

Peggy opted for TeethXpress. She received a full set of implant-supported replacement teeth on both her top and bottom jaw.  “I can eat everything I want. There are absolutely no limitations,” said Peggy. She now has secure teeth and the ability to have a much more nutritious diet. Her overall health has improved. “My bloodwork is the best I’ve ever had.”

Cara established a connection between dental health & whole-body health

At age 35, and very active as a pilates instructor, Cara chose to replace her failing teeth with the TeethXpress dental implant procedure, instead of dentures.

Like Peggy, her teeth weren’t healthy enough to chew solid food, so she was restricted to a soft diet that included mostly bananas, mashed potatoes, baked sweet potatoes and over-steamed vegetables.

Being restricted to such a limited diet can be frustrating and unhealthy. Since Cara received dental implants her health has drastically improved.

“I have been eating everything in the world…,” said Cara. A connection between dental health and systemic (whole-body) health has long been recognized, and Cara is a living example. “I’m so happy and more healthy now that I can eat whatever I want.”

Marc no longer gulps down large chunks of food with false teeth

In Marc’s case, at age 71 he had the uncomfortable experience of wearing a denture before receiving his implant-supported teeth. “With dentures, you have to use some kind of compound to keep the teeth in.”

It’s very common for dentures to come loose, even with denture adhesive. “[My denture] was coming loose all the time,” he said. “Food would get stuck under there and then you have to remove the false teeth."

Like Peggy and Cara, Marc’s dental implants have removed all limitations on what he can eat.

“The day I had the [final teeth] put in, my son took me out to a steak dinner. It felt so good to chew something like that and find that I had no problem… I really enjoyed it,” said Marc. “My nutrition is definitely better, and I’m not gulping down large chunks of food.”
