Quite often a new patient comes to our office with substantial dental problems. Or they’re missing their teeth and need a solution that isn’t dentures. Our Racine WI dental practice is using a number of solutions to give you a more functional and brighter smile.
Today we want to show you why so many of our patients with missing teeth are choosing dental implants. North Bay Dental is a leader in providing durable dental implants. We can restore these dental implants in a number of ways, it just depends on your dental needs. If you have any dental needs, give us a call today at 262-417-7326 to schedule your visit.
Here are some of the main reasons patients are choosing dental implants:
They are tired of their slippery dentures
Without question, the number one complaint of denture wearers is the fit. A new set of dentures should be snug against the gums, but that fit will change with age. Older dentures will shift around the mouth or rub against the gums. Many dentures wearers develop sores in their mouths or need apply denture adhesives several times a day. When you have dental implants, your teeth will stay put. Even if you’re missing all of your teeth, we can place dental implants around the arch and then snap new teeth into the dentures.
They can’t eat the food they love
People with dentures are well aware of the food limitations. Even with the best possible fit, your biting force is much less compared with natural teeth. In fact, many studies have found that dentures only provide about 25 to 50 percent of the biting force of natural teeth (the big difference is because every person’s mouth is different).
Many of the foods most of use love to eat (pizza, steaks, chicken, apples, nuts) are all off the menu. Or, the patients struggles to bite into those foods and just avoids them. Dental implant is a big game-changer here. Implants nearly match the power of your natural teeth. So, when you have dental implants, you’ll never have to worry about eating the food you love. All of your favorite foods will be back on the menu.
They want a more youthful appearance
Having gaps in your smile isn’t a good look. This problem will make you look much older than you are. Wearing dentures will replace those missing gaps, but your mouth and jaw will still change shape. Tooth loss spurs jawbone recession, and jawbone recession gives people that sunken in appearance (the distance from the nose and chin grow closer together) and more wrinkles. These two problems add age to your appearance.
Dental implants are so durable because they are placed in the jawbone. They act as an artificial tooth root AND stop jawbone recession in its tracks. So, you’ll be able to eat whatever you want and enjoy a more youthful appearance.
