Dental Implants Aiding Postmenopausal Women

happy womenIt appears there is yet more great news regarding dental implants and the various benefits they offer people in terms of tooth replacement. Today dental implants Ft. Lauderdale dentist Dr. Fenton and the entire staff at Bayview Smile Design want to tell you about the amazing things dental implants are doing for postmenopausal women suffering from osteoporosis.

Dental implants have received quite a bit of praise in the dental world for being the healthiest and most durable method of mitigating tooth loss for some time now. Dental implant technology has been thought to help prevent and improve various aspects of human health, from vascular diseases to emotional stability. Now, more and more studies are emerging and lending a voice of authority in favor of the validity of these suggestions.

It just so happens that one of the above-mentioned studies was recently performed at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. This amazing study is aiming to prove that dental implants actually improve the quality of life in postmenopausal women who are suffering from osteoporosis.

This study piggybacks off the already well known medical fact that postmenopausal women suffering with osteoporosis are much more likely to experience tooth loss than women who are not. Because of this the argument as to which method of tooth replacement treatment would offer these women the most benefit has long been debated between dental professionals.

Thank goodness it appears that Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine may have finally arrived an answer to this long and drawn out argument that may be able to lay it to rest once and for all. We don’t suppose it will come as any surprise when you find out that the answer is in favor of dental implants.

Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine performed a few separate studies in regards to dental implants and the benefits they offer postmenopausal women. However, the one discussed here surveyed a total of 237 women in regards to their satisfaction with the dental implants they had received and the resulting quality of life they were currently experiencing after dental implant treatment. This survey consisted of 23 questions which rated their happiness with emotional, professional, physical and sexual aspects of their lives.

Of course, the results came back in a landslide victory for dental implants.

According to Christine Debaz, the lead researcher on this project and also the person who interviewed each woman participating personally, women with dental implants reported a higher rating in all aspects of their lives. Nearly every single participant with claimed to be happier with dental implants.

However, the most interesting part of this study is this last little tidbit. Women who had chosen to solve their tooth loss issues with dental implants reported the highest levels of happiness in both the emotional and sexual aspects of their lives.

This is a direct contrast to the women in the survey who had decided to go about their tooth loss issues with alternative tooth replacement methods like bridges or dentures. These women reported the lowest levels of happiness in the emotional and sexual aspects of their lives.

Until next time readers, keep smiling.
