You enjoy life. Whatever your passions, you seek them out with abandon. Food, drink, company, and cars: your day is full of luxuries, and there’s no time for slowing down. Which can be a problem if you lose one or more teeth, because dentures can interfere with your lifestyle in many ways.
Fortunately, dental implants can let you continue to enjoy your life as you always have with your natural teeth.
Keep Your Charming Smile
Dentures are a lot better than they used to be, but they’re still lacking when it comes to appearance. If you have a partial denture, it has to be held in place with clasps, hooks, and a plastic structure that can be very visible. Not only that, your denture can become dislodged at unfortunate moments, which will call everyone’s attention to your missing teeth.
But dental implants look as attractive as your natural teeth. There’s no telltale hooks, clasps, or structures to clue people in to the fact that you have lost teeth. And your dental implants will always be in place. You can flash your unforgettable style on demand and never worry.
If you’re in the public eye, having a great-looking smile is crucial, of course, but there’s another concern. If you’re a public speaker–especially one with a reputation for high-energy performances–you need to know that you can speak loudly and project your voice without worrying that you’re going to project your dentures.
And you need to know that you can enunciate clearly. Dentures can affect the way you speak, forcing you to relearn how to talk in front of a crowd.
But with dental implants, you know they’re secure, and you can speak naturally and normally, just the way you did with your natural teeth.
Life on the Go
We know you probably fall into one of two groups: the kind that likes to roll out of bed and hit the road looking great or the kind that has an extensive beauty routine that ensures you look perfect every time. But whichever group you’re in, you don’t have time to add denture care to your routine. You don’t want to have to worry about soaking your dentures or stopping to clean them after every meal. Just keep brushing and flossing like normal and that’s all your implants need.
And dental implants are ideal if you live an active life. Any type of athletic activity could end up with your dentures on the ground–or jabbed into your mouth. But dental implants are tough like your natural teeth, and with a mouthguard–like you should always wear anyway–you can keep enjoying all the same activities.
Another problem with dentures is that they can make it hard to enjoy all the gourmet foods you’ve come to love. Not only will you find yourself having to decide between taking your dentures out to eat and skipping some foods that are just not compatible with your partial dentures.
And dentures can interfere with your taste. Full dentures are the worst for this because of the way they cover the roof of your mouth, which helps with taste. But partials can also interfere with taste, especially if they trap food or bacteria under them, leading to a bad taste. And dentures require cleaning after every meal, unlike dental implants.
If you are looking to keep enjoying the kind of lifestyle you’ve grown accustomed to, dental implants are the right choice for you. To learn more about the benefits of dental implants, please call (702) 873-0324 for an appointment with an implant dentist at the office of Dr. James B. Polley.
