Depression and Your Oral Health: The Oral Systemic Link
Your teeth affect more than just your ability to eat food! Believe it or not, your smile actually plays an important role in your mental health and well being. A beautiful, healthy smile gives you the confidence needed to achieve great things, and if you're not satisfied with the appearance of your teeth it may keep you from smiling. In fact, researchers have found that it may even contribute to depression and anxiety. There is good news however, and that is your dentist in Pikesville, MD has solutions for you!
At Naylors Court Dental Partners, we offer a number of solutions to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry such as:
- Teeth Whitening - Can give your smile a quick and cost effective boost, or complete a smile makeover
- Porcelain Veneers - Ideal for repairing issues such as chipping, small fractures, excessive wear, discoloration, gaps and spacing, and size discrepancies
- Invisalign - Will straighten crooked teeth with the discretion of clear plastic aligners instead of traditional metal braces
Whether your teeth just need a quick upgrade, alignment, or major repairs our highly skilled team can accommodate you.
A missing tooth takes a major toll on your confidence! Not only does your smile look bad, now it's also hard for you to eat the foods you would normally enjoy. It may even affect your speech. It's a good idea to replace a missing tooth as soon as you can because it also impacts your oral health. The loss of your root causes your bone to dissolve, while your remaining teeth will begin to shift without a replacement.
A dental implant replaces your root with a titanium post that will integrate with your bone over time, and your missing tooth with a porcelain crown. An implant closely mimics your natural tooth so you'll enjoy the function you had lost such as chewing, talking, and smiling with ease again.
