Living with dentures may be fine for some, but for many patients, removable dentures create more problems than they solve. It’s difficult to eat food or even taste it, and you’ve most likely had to drastically limit your diet based on what you can bite and chew. You may also feel your dentures don’t look like real teeth and rest uncomfortably on your jaw ridge, or not fit at all.
You don’t have to live with the pain and embarrassment of dentures any longer, however. With dental implants, you can be free from these problems and regain a life of health, comfort, and confidence. Dental implants are the closest thing to real teeth, providing you with nearly all the same benefits that can improve your personal and social life for decades to come.
Dental implants restore your smile—and life—in three main ways:
#1 – Dental implants restore your ability to eat
Dental implants restore over 99 percent of your biting and chewing power. That means you’ll be able to comfortably eat all the foods you enjoy and those that can improve your oral and overall health. With dental implants, you won’t have to worry about your dentures slipping or falling out, even if you’re eating steak, vegetables, nuts, or other chewy or hard foods. A more well-rounded diet means better physical and mental health.
#2 – Dental implants restore the health of your jawbone
One of the biggest problems with dentures is how they become loose and uncomfortable over time. This is a direct result of jawbone loss. Without the stimulation from teeth, the bone resorbs, and this process can be accelerated in the lower jaw from the pressure exerted by a denture. Dental implants both halt this jawbone loss and keep your new prosthesis or denture firmly secured in your mouth.
#3 – Dental implants restore your self-confidence
By permanently restoring function and health to your smile, life-like dental implants also restore your confidence and self-esteem. Your new teeth will look and feel completely natural, and most likely no one will know you have a denture or prosthesis unless you tell them. You’ll never again have to worry about your teeth becoming loose or falling out!
