All-On-X Dental Implants And Health: Get on The Right Path

Smile woes are more common than you think.

About one-third of adults in the U.S. are dissatisfied with their smiles, according to statistics from the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO)This link opens a new tab to AAO website.

That statistic probably knocked your socks right off! Who would have thought?

While you commonly think of All-On-X as a way to help these individuals regain confidence, this procedure is so much more.

All-On-X dental implants and health have a serious relationship. It’s not even a complicated one. (Finally, something simple!)

Let’s take a moment to look at how these two go hand-in-hand, mano y mano.

Improved chewing means better digestion

Missing and damaged teeth can cause you to forgo the foods you love and your body needs.

Instead, you may choose easy-to-eat options that don’t give your body all the nutrition it craves. (Ugh, it sounds like a no-win situation!)

And if you’re still eating a normal diet but not chewing like you should, it’s rough on your digestive tract.

It has to work harder to process those larger chunks.

You may then experience the wrath of indigestion and incomplete digestion. You’re probably imagining your stomach tossing and turning right now.

With All-On-X dental implants, you can chew normally. What a relief that’ll be!

Your digestive tract can then have a break and relax, and you’ll absorb all the possible nutrients.

Sounds like your digestive tract will be sending you a thank-you letter.

We did mention nutrient absorption. So, let’s discuss that!

Get all the nutrients your body needs

We won’t bore you with the food guide pyramid or give you a list of daily nutrients you need.

Instead, we’ll go on record by saying you need to eat a varied diet to get all the nutrition your body needs to function.

We know it can be like solving a puzzle without all the pieces when you can’t eat certain foods because of missing teeth.

And other food is out of the question because it’s too hard.

Then, to eat another, it has to be at the perfect temperature.

All-On-X dental implants can take all that stress away. (Whew!) You can then eat whatever you want and get all the nourishment needed.

As if those perks weren’t enough, the health benefits of All-On-X don’t stop there!

Improve your mental health

When your nutrient levels run low, you’ll feel it throughout your body.

But an imperfect smile can affect your self-esteem.

If it’s interfering with your speech, that’s another whammy. You might grit your teeth and bear it—yes, we needed to interject a dental play on words—but you’ll feel it at the end of the day.

All of this can weigh heavily on your mental health. And it only worsens the situation if you avoid social interactions to hide your smile.

By having a smile you’re proud to flash, you’ll see your confidence soar and take your mental health up with it.

Oh, the possibilities you’ll have when you improve your self-esteem and mental health. Everything from your work to your relationships will reflect this.

Maybe you’re thinking you’re fine with your teeth the way they are. And you haven’t noticed any signs of nutrient deficiencies.

Fortunately for you, that’s not where the All-On-X health benefits end.

Preserve your jawbone and facial structure

Your jawbone holds everything, i.e., your teeth and gums, together and helps maintain your facial structure.

With full-mouth dental implants, you can preserve your jawbone. You maintain its density, at least as much as possible.

You’ll then uphold your facial contours and prevent any collapse.

We say this goes with mental health because it’ll help prevent your face from aging before its time. Maintaining a youthful appearance is a win for your health and well-being in our book!

A few final words

Let’s hear it for All-On-X dental implants! They’re not only beautiful; they’re super functional as well. This is especially true once you discover the relationship between All-On-X and health.

You’ll give your mind and digestive system a well-needed rest while ensuring you get the nutrients your body needs.
