You finally made it to the new restaurant in town. You have been looking forward to breaking bread with your friends for months.
The only issue is that you are not sure if you will be able to eat the actual bread. Will the rolls be too tough for you to bite? For that matter, will a steak be too difficult for you to bite and chew?
You didn’t think about your dentures when you agreed to dinner plans, but now you find yourself scanning the menu for soup, mashed potatoes, or other soft foods that will cause little if any problems.
That’s not really what you want to eat, but you don’t want to spend the meal worrying about your teeth coming loose when you try to bite something. You are already hoping that your denture adhesive will be sufficient to stop your “teeth” from sliding around during the dinner conversation.
You don’t have to feel this way when you go out to eat. Instead, you could get dental implants to feel confident that your replacement teeth will remain securely in your mouth. To discuss how you could get implants, call 704-285-0846 for an appointment at Charlotte Dentistry in Charlotte, NC.
Make Your Teeth Strong
People who have standard dentures can have a natural-looking smile. However, they only regain a fraction of their biting and chewing power. Dentures can and do slide around because they rest over your gums.
Unlike teeth, which have roots, dentures are not anchored into your jawbones. Implants act as artificial roots. With implants, you recreate the direct connection to your jaw. This is invaluable for reviving the full force of your biting power.
When you have implants, they anchor your bridge or dentures in position. Every time you bite and chew, your implants are pressed into your jaw. This also means that you stimulate your jaw. Your jaw responds to this by generating new tissue. This is essential for maintaining your jaw health.
It’s also something you won’t get from traditional dentures.
In other words, if you want to be able to eat what you like for years or even decades to come, then you need to get dental implants with your teeth replacements.
Feel Like Your Have Real Teeth Again
For previous generations, dentures were the best option for teeth replacements. They were far from perfect, but they at least restored some biting ability.
Modern dental implants were developed in the 1960s. Today they are the gold standard for teeth replacements. Yes, there have been innovations and improvements, but the basic idea is the same. If you want replacement teeth that look and feel like the real thing, you need to replace the crowns and the roots.
With implants, you can:
- Eat what you like
- Speak clearly
- Smile with confidence
- Improve your health
- Enjoy a higher quality of life
You Deserve More Than a Great Smile
Make sure you are getting what you want from your replacement teeth. Don’t just settle for a nice smile, when you can have a powerful bite and healthy jaw, too.
