I am fortunate to get to help a lot of people with modern dentistry. One aspect of modern dentistry is the use of dental implants. Dental implants perform several functions, ranging from the replacement of a tooth because a tooth gets knocked out or because a tooth gets pulled. As well as dental implants are an excellent option when doing various cosmetic dentistry procedures, but the bottom line is that they significantly improve the quality of life for the person who gets the dental implant.
I’m sure you’ve seen a person who has lost their teeth and their mouth seems sunken in and this is due to the bone loss caused by not having teeth. Yes, that’s right, when you lose teeth your bone actually will be lost and the introduction of the dental implant actually helps to stimuluate the bone and reduces the bone loss and even allows for the bone to integrate with the dental implant. This creates an incredibly strong bond as well as allows for a much better look vs the sunken in look due to the loss of bone. Many people don’t realize that the dental implants do way more than just gives you a more permenant solution. Dental implants are also extremely helpful when used with dentures becasue it allows for your customized dentures to snap in and gives you a tremendous amount of confidence when using your dentures including in many cases the opportunity to eat foods that most people would never dare to each if they had dentures. And the comfort and peace of mind of being able to be in public and enjoy your favorite foods creates a quality of life that is difficult to put a value on.

BUILD STRONGER, BETTER BONES
Osteoporosis has been called the “silent disease” because it can arrive unannounced and deplete its unsuspecting victims of precious bone mass. Millions of Americans suffer from this degenerative bone disease, yet a majority of us are not taking the simple, necessary steps to prevent it. When it comes to nutritional supplements, calcium should be at the top of your shopping list. Got calcium? 5 reasons you need it
1. Avoiding Osteoporosis
Bones are living tissue. Our bodies continually remove and replace small amounts of calcium from our bones as they grow. If more calcium is removed than replaced, bones become weaker and have a greater chance of breaking. This can lead to osteoporosis. Think only women and the elderly are at risk? Wrong. Only 21 percent of Americans are getting enough calcium in their diets. If you are over 25, your bones have already started to lose density.
2. Building a strong foundation
Starting at a young age, we need to be proactive about building healthy bones. Studies show that nurturing the strongest, densest bones possible is essential during our early years before we start losing bone density. It’s like plugging a small leak in a dam. Do it early and the reservoir stays full. Ignore it, and you’re likely to have major problems. Put another way, if you wait too long, the bone is gone.
3. Maintaining healthy, active bodies
Calcium is used in muscle contractions, which means repetitive muscle use drains calcium from our bodies. It stands to reason, then, that calcium supplementation is especially important to active bodies. This is true whether you’re an endurance athlete or a weekend recreationist. Satisfying your body’s thirst for calcium is important because without proper calcium intake your muscles will not pack their full punch.
4. Filing the voids in our diet
The best natural sources for calcium are milk and dairy products like cheese and yogurt. We also get calcium from peas, beans, soybeans, lentils, potatoes, eggs, fish and fresh leafy vegetables such as spinach. Unfortunately, most Americans do not get the recommended amount of calcium from their daily diets. In the United States, about 10 million people have osteoporosis caused by calcium deficiency. Another 34 million people experience low bone mass, placing them at risk of having the disease.
5. Ignoring the problem puts you at risk
Despite all the evidence, there is an alarming rate of ignorance about calcium deficiency. Almost 80 percent of Americans 45 and older do not believe osteoporosis is a risk factor in broken bones, and 40 percent of women and 60 percent of men age 45 and older have little or no concern about their bone health. These numbers show that the millions of Americans at risk for osteoporosis do not know enough about the disease, their personal risk or what they can do to protect their bones.
Bone deterioration is preventable. Nourishing your bones with generous amounts of calcium is the best defense against degenerative bone diseases like osteoporosis. It is crucial to supply your body with the required levels of calcium, as well as the other minerals that affect calcium absorption. Supplementing can reduce the risks and promote strong, healthy bones for life!
