Using just a few precision-placed implants we can restore your smile in ways you never knew were possible. If you want to return to the days of eating, smiling, and living without worry then dental implants are the choice for you.
Dentures Can Ruin Your Health
It sounds like the exact opposite of what dentures should do, but it’s true: they can pose a number of health risks! The most obvious one to someone who wears dentures is the dietary restrictions: there are a lot of foods that you just can’t eat! Those restrictions also limit your ability to get the nutrients you need, which can lead to other health problems.
The lack of a balanced diet increases your risk of illnesses that are made worse by your dentures because of how much bacteria they contain. While natural teeth are also covered in bacteria they don’t spend time outside your mouth – even just a few minutes to wash your dentures can expose them to dangerous pathogens that can make you seriously sick!
Cultures taken of dentures shows that over 65 percent contain bacteria that causes pneumonia, MRSA, and other illnesses. Combined with a weakened immune system and the other health effects of a poor diet and you’re seriously endangering yourself with dentures.
They Simply Can’t Look Real
Ever put your dentures in and realize they just don’t look real? You aren’t seeing things: it’s hard to create removable teeth that look natural. Dentures have to be bulky by their very nature so that they stay in place. They cover your gums, the roof of your mouth, and are simply too large to be realistic.
There’s just something unnatural about a denture smile, and if you’ve been wearing them for any length of time you know how embarrassing and confidence-crushing that can be. While they do eliminate your lost teeth there’s a definite trade-off. Is it one you want to live with for the rest of your life?
Do You Constantly Worry About Your Dentures?
We’ve seen many patients who are just plain tired of constantly worrying about their teeth. There’s a constant worry about slippage, not staying suctioned in place, and even having them fall out entirely. Years of denture wear doesn’t make that concern go away, and in fact can just make it worse as your jaw bones shrink and ruin their fit!
Some of the people we see are practically in tears over the constant need to obsess over their dentures: all that frustration, the loss of a healthy social life, and the constant anxiety are incredibly distressing. If you’ve found yourself worrying about your dentures you aren’t alone, and you don’t deserve to live like that!
You Have Options!
Remember waking up with a full set of teeth that you never had to think about? How about your favorite foods, all eaten without worry? Those days might seem behind you with dentures but they don’t have to be. Whether you’re missing a single tooth, tired of partials, or needing to replace a full set of dentures we can restore your old life with dental implants.
