The Man Who Wouldn’t Smile!
Losing your teeth can be traumatic. Not only is it impossible to eat or chew comfortably, but social situations can become painful and embarrassing.
Convention dentures have long been the established solution for tooth loss. But, it certainly hasn’t been the ideal solution! Slippage, chafing, and inability to chew or eat normally are just a few of the drawbacks. Dentistry has long needed a better answer to the problem of missing teeth.
Dental implants is that answer! Implants are replacement tooth roots that are permanently placed in the jawbone and then crowned with a natural looking and functioning custom-crafted replacement tooth. Implants are often used to replace a single missing tooth, but they are increasingly being used as the stabilizing foundation for dentures.
A recent patient of ours had experienced the discomfort that missing teeth can cause. It was hard to even get him to smile. Implant retained dentures were the perfect solution for him!
Implant retained dentures are held in place by implants strategically placed in the jawbone which along with a prosthesis securely hold dentures in their optimum position.
Some of the benefits of implant retained dentures are:
• Look and function like your own natural teeth.
• Long-lasting and durable
• More comfortable and stable than conventional dentures.
• Have a more natural biting and chewing capacity.
• Implant retained dentures also protect your supporting bone structure from deterioration.
• They are easier to maintain than conventional dentures.
Our patient loved his new smile using implant retained dentures. In fact, we can’t get him to stop smiling now!
