For decades, some patients have found that dentures do not provide the dietary options or security that they would like. While some patients have few troubles with dentures fitting properly, others with a small palate or bone loss feel limited with denture use. This may prevent you from scheduling lunch dates or a trip to the comedy club with friends because denture mishaps are embarrassing.
Dental implants have given many patients a new lease on life because they are the most realistic and lifelike option to replacing missing teeth.
Dental Implants Stay Put
The titanium post in dental implants actually fuse with your natural bone and become part of the jaw system. When dental implants are healthy, they do not move or shift.
Dental implants can replace one or many missing teeth and offer an unrestricted diet. Some common sense caution includes not biting into anything that could damage a natural tooth because dental implants are strong but not indestructible.
Dental Implants Replace the Entire Tooth
Rather than simply giving the appearance of a complete smile using a false tooth, the dental implant will actually replace the root and crown of the tooth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings are essential, but other than that, they require no special treatment unless a condition, such as gum disease, develops.
Dental Implants Can Secure Dentures
Combining the stability of dental implants with the economics of dentures gives patients great results. Rather than dentures that slip or fall, four to six dental implants provide a locking mechanism to keep dentures from moving.
Staying social and eating a healthy diet are essential and enjoyable aspects of life. Don’t let dentures limit your social life! Dental implants offer an alternative that is almost like having your natural tooth back again.
