Here at Ocoee Oral Surgery we believe that dental implants can be life-changing for patients who suffer day-to-day difficulties with their dentures or bone loss. To start 2022 right, why not consider a permanent tooth replacement solution?
Here are some reasons why denture wearers should consider dental implants.
Get Your Bite Back
You probably noticed a major change in your diet and eating habits after getting dentures. Dentures can make it challenging to chew food thoroughly, and some hard or chewy foods are completely off-limits.
However with dental implants your dentures are firmly held in place. This sturdiness helps expand your diet. Eat what you like without stopping to adjust your teeth!
Be More Confident
Have you ever felt your dentures slide or shift positions in your mouth while you were smiling, talking to someone, or eating with a friend? Tooth loss isn’t something to be embarrassed about, but it’s hard not to feel embarrassed when your teeth are visibly moving.
Again, the adherence provided by dental implants will save the day. Smile with confidence and talk without covering your mouth. Your dental implants will stay in place and free you from worrying about whether or not your teeth are moving.
Have a Permanent Solution
It’s easy to drop slippery dentures while cleaning them, and they can shatter in your sink or on your bathroom floor. Even if you manage to avoid this kind of damage, dentures wear with time and need to be relined or replaced.
Dental implants don’t need to be taken out to be cleaned, you clean them just as you would natural teeth. With good care, they should last the rest of your life!
Patients who have dentures may think that they aren’t candidates for dental implants, but dental implants are appropriate for many.
