Are you unable to eat and socialize comfortably due to dentures or missing teeth? Do you feel the need to hide behind your hands due to gaps in your smile, or from fear of your dentures popping out? Implants might be the solution. At Holly Dental Care, we offer dental implants as an alternative to dentures, while also preserving the health of your remaining teeth and jaw bone. If you’re experiencing problems with your dentures, or are tired of gaps in your smile and worrying about your oral health, here are 4 reasons why dental implants might be right for you:
Dental implants are a permanent, worry-free part of your mouth. Do you hate the taste of denture adhesive? Are you fed up with your dentures coming loose when you laugh or sneeze? Are you tired of sores caused by loose-fitting dentures rubbing your gums? With dental implants, you never have to worry about your teeth falling out! No more nasty tasting glue. Implants eliminate the day to day upkeep of dentures, so you can get back to your normal life.
Dental implants are 90% as strong as your original teeth. How long has it been since you’ve sank your teeth into a thick, mouth-watering steak or a crisp, juicy apple? Implants are placed in your mouth to act just like your original teeth. There is no need to worry about which side of your mouth you need to chew on, or about your dentures coming loose. The stress and strain of dentures, or of having a missing tooth, is a thing of the past when you choose implants. You can eat whatever you like and enjoy your food again!
Dental implants preserve your oral health. Unlike dentures, implants preserve your oral health by maintaining your jaw bone structure. As long as the root of your tooth resides in your gum, the bone will keep its health. However, empty spaces in your mouth can cause increased decay and an overall decline in oral health. Implants act like your original teeth by preserving the structure of your jaw bone. In addition, they are much easier to keep clean (just brush and floss like normal!), so there is less worry about bacteria build-up and gum disease.
Dental Implants will give you confidence. Whether you’ve been struggling with dentures, or you are living without one or more of your original teeth, they can help you gain the confidence you lost. Implants can help you live a healthier, less stressful life, but they can also:
Give you the confidence you desire when eating or laughing in public. No more fear of your dentures popping out or gagging you. No more hiding the gaps in your smile behind your hands.
Allow you the freedom from embarrassment of having to order soft, tasteless food. You can eat whatever you want!
Help you look and feel 10 years younger. In addition to having the freedom to eat and live the way you want, implants will help your facial structure remain strong. No more worrying about wrinkling or the sunken-in appearance of someone with no teeth. By placing implants and preserving your oral health, you can look attractive and worry less about future dental problems.
At Holly Dental, we can help you look and feel your best by offering dental implants as an option for a healthier smile. The procedure is virtually painless, and we can help make you as comfortable as possible. Don’t be tired of your dentures, or worried about the health of your mouth due to missing teeth!
