Eating is Easier
Anyone who has missing teeth or wears traditional, non-permanent dentures, will quickly tell you how difficult it is to eat many of their favorite foods. Because dentures aren’t attached to your jaw, they can slip and slide even if you use a strong denture adhesive. Trying, and failing, to eat many different kinds of foods with dentures will often lead to people giving up on some of their favorite foods because the pleasure they get from their snack just isn’t enough to counteract the frustration and effort of trying to chew it. While this might mean that they cut down on some sticky, chewy sweet treats, many very healthy foods can also fall by the wayside because of their toughness. Lean meats and some vegetables and fruits can quickly become too much of a bother, so some people give them up. Weight loss and even malnutrition is common in a large number of people who suffer from broken, damaged, or missing teeth.
When you choose to get dental implants, the foods you said goodbye to can come back to your plate! Thanks to the special anchoring techniques of the implants we make, you won’t have to worry about slippage any longer. You can chew food like you used to and you won’t have to worry about particles getting caught under your dentures! Not only will this implants make eating easier, they make eating more fun. You can go back to restaurants you love and spend more time attending dinner parties because you have the confidence to know that you can eat whatever is being served. You’ll also enjoy the benefits of a more well-rounded diet, meaning that you’ll probably feel and look better!
Spend Less Time Getting Ready
Dentures are definitely an improvement over a mouthful of broken teeth but they have many, many downsides. In addition to the issues of chewing and speaking that we’ve already mentioned, taking care of dentures is a time-consuming process. Instead of brushing them like regular teeth, they require a special brush and a different kind of cleaning agent because normal toothpastes are too abrasive. If you clean dentures with toothpaste, it could lead to scratches where bacteria and food particles can collect and cause a terrible odor.
Dental implants can be brushed like normal, and because you don’t have to take them out in order to brush them, you’ll save time in the morning and at night. While this might not seem like a huge deal, think about running late in the morning and decide if you want to spend even more time getting ready for the day when the clock is ticking. Don’t add any extra stress to your day, when you can return to the way things used to be with a new set of dental implants!
You Will Feel Happier
Most importantly, dental implants can make you happier. A set of healthy teeth improves your overall health and can have a tremendously positive impact on your mental health. If your teeth are missing or damaged, chances are good that you don’t smile as much as you would if you had a healthy set of teeth. Smiling has been shown, time and time again, to elevate your mood and improve your confidence.
