We recently celebrated Independence Day, a time to reflect on the sacrifices made so we can enjoy our freedom. It’s also a time to enjoy the company of family and friends – and let’s not forget the food!
Were you able to enjoy the Fourth of July feast this year? If you have dentures, you may not have been able to sink your teeth into those grilled steaks or bite into corn-on-the-cob. Perhaps you got to cut your BBQ chicken into tiny pieces, or maybe you were able to eat the potato salad since it was one of the softer foods among the spread.
If this sounds like you, whether at a holiday gathering or every day, it’s time to get freedom from dentures. Marineland Dental Care is here to help. Call Dr. Hadley at 509-591-0515 for your free dental implants consultation, and see what our Kennewick, WA dentist can do for you.
In the meantime, check out four ways dental implants can give you freedom from dentures.
Get Freedom from Your Teeth Falling Out
Loose dentures is one of the biggest complaints we get from patients who wear dentures. Since dentures rest on top of your gums and often rely on adhesives to stay in place, it makes sense that they could come loose. Real, natural teeth are rooted in your jaw, so that keeps them secure.
Implants provide a similar kind of stability. We place them in your jawbone, which actually grows around the implants. We can then secure new teeth firmly on top, whether dental crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Many of our patients have secured their lower dentures with dental implants. In lots of cases, we can simply adjust your current dentures to fit on only two to four implants. Your lower denture will stay where it’s supposed to – in your mouth – whether you are speaking, laughing, coughing, singing, or eating.
Get Freedom to Eat What You Want
Because implants are secured in your jaw, they will stay in place while you eat. Many patients enjoy nearly the same biting force as natural, healthy teeth just a couple of months after getting their implants. So when everyone goes for the steak, you can join them without fear that your dentures will fall out. You will never have to turn down family get-togethers or dinner invitations because of your teeth.
Get Freedom to Smile Proudly
No one should have to live in captivity to their smile. A smile is a gift you were born with. You deserve to smile proudly, without embarrassment. It’s a freedom most people take for granted, unless they have problems with their smile.
With a full set of teeth that look, feel, and work like real teeth, you can smile whenever you want. You can smile with your mouth open, teeth showing, for the next Independence Day family photos. With implants, your teeth won’t look or feel like false teeth. You won’t have to wonder whether someone is looking at your mouth because they think your teeth aren’t real.
Get Freedom to Live Without Pain
A good set of conventional dentures may not cause pain. Of course, getting dentures can be painful at first while you are getting used to them. But even after that initial period, dentures can cause discomfort. They can cause sores, and they can cause pain as they lose their fit, which happens because your jawbone continues to shrink from missing teeth. They can cause discomfort when you try to eat foods that you once enjoyed with ease.
And this says nothing about the emotional pain of loose dentures: limited food options, false-looking teeth, and simply knowing your teeth are not a part of you when you take them out each night before bed.
It shouldn’t be painful to smile. You shouldn’t have to ever think about pain in your mouth because of your teeth. With Dr. Hadley’s help, you don’t have to deal with the pain anymore. We’ll help you get the freedom you deserve with realistic teeth that feel like the real thing. In fact, they might feel better than your teeth have in ages if you experienced tooth decay, dental infection, or trauma.
