It’s very understandable for patients wearing dentures to ask for a more permanent alternative to full and partial dentures. Why wouldn’t they? Dentures are very inconvenient to wear and patients with dentures can share with you a number of stories about their denture mishaps that are both funny and embarrassing. Soft Touch Dentistry recommends the use of dental implants if our patients are looking for a better alternative to dentures. Dental implants are the closest thing that you can get to having your natural teeth back.
What are the other benefits that you can get from dental implants? Since implants are fused together with your jawbone, it offers the same look and functions of your own teeth and will guarantee to improve your appearance. Since it is permanent, it functions much like your natural tooth root and offers a strong foundation for the dental bridge or replacement tooth that will later be attached to it. Dental implants contribute positively to the improvement of speech and will not cause slurring and impede your speech like other ill-fitting dental appliances. This procedure also does not require the reduction of the healthy tooth structure of the adjacent teeth unlike other dental restoration treatments. Unlike dentures, patients can brush and floss normally and will eliminate the need for special care that dentures require. Patients will not have a restricted diet and can eat anything they want anytime. And most importantly, dental implants were designed to improve a patient’s way of life and bring back the self confidence that they have lost because of their missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures. With proper care, you can enjoy the use of your dental implants for a long time.
