This is the time of year to reflect on the things we are thankful to have in our lives. This includes family and friends. This includes little things, too, like being able to eat the foods that you enjoy.
This is actually one of the main reasons so many patients have told us they appreciate the value of their dental implants. With implants, your replacement teeth can both look and feel like healthy, natural teeth again.
At Accura Dental, Dr. Chad Murdock can help you feel like yourself again. With computer-guided implant placement, you could have a new reason to smile.
And that’s something we can all be grateful for. In the meantime, read some of the other reasons we are thankful for implants. Then call 719-249-2854 to get your own at our Colorado Springs, CO dental office.
1. You Can Eat What You Want
As we noted above, eating anything you want is one of the things many people enjoy about life. When you have traditional dentures (full or partial) or you are missing teeth, eating can be difficult.
Without teeth, you may not be able to bite or chew, which seriously restricts what you can put on your plate. With dentures, you can eat more than you could without teeth replacements, but it isn’t the same as having healthy teeth.
By replacing the roots of your teeth with implants, you create a direct connection from your dentures or bridge to your jawbone. That lets you generate more power, so you can bite and chew practically as well as anyone with a full set of healthy teeth.
2. You Can Skip The Denture Adhesives
One of the biggest complaints we hear about dentures is that they move around. This is partly due to the fact that they rest over your gums. Without implants to replace your roots, you are likely to lose bone mass in your jaw. That changes the shape of your mouth, which affects how well (or how poorly) your dentures fit.
This is why your dentures can move around. It’s possible to fight this, to a degree with denture adhesives. Unfortunately, these adhesives also can leave an aftertaste, which may change the flavor of the foods that you eat.
3. You Can Say What You Mean To Say
Another common frustration with dentures is directly related to the issue we just mentioned above. Dentures aren’t secure. Even with adhesive, they can move around inside your mouth.
And they can move around while you are trying to talk, which can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, and sometimes humorous all at the same time. It’s also frustrating when your “teeth” are making it hard to say what you want to say.
With implants, your replacement teeth stay securely in place, so you can speak clearly and normally again.
