Implants VS Real
The bottom line is... your health
Preserving natural teeth is always the best route to go, says Dr. Singleton. But when that isn’t an option—if there is serious gum disease or decay, he believes implants are the best solutions for his patients.
Damaged or decaying teeth can cause significant health problems—in fact, life-threatening health issues can be the outcome. You just need to open your newspaper to see all the research that has come out lately on the problems gum disease can lead to or worsen:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Reduced effectiveness of insulin for diabetics
- Lowered birth weight in babies
Damaged teeth can also result in a ‘bad bite’ causing the muscles in your jaw and neck to work overtime to compensate. If you suffer from frequent headaches, sore neck and/or sore back, it could be as a result of a misaligned bite.
If your oral health is affecting your health and your quality of life, Dr. Singleton will work with you to decide what is the best solution for you and your teeth.
