For many years, tooth loss was widely accepted as an unavoidable part of the natural aging process. As men and women entered their late fifties and sixties, they simply resigned themselves to the fact that they would soon be losing at least some of their teeth as a matter of course due to their advancing age. Patients seeking a reliable tooth replacement solution were once limited to removable prosthetics like dentures, but today’s technology makes it possible to restore full functionality and esthetics with dental implants.
How Dental Implants Compare To Traditional Dentures
Among the chief complaints cited by denture wearers is the well-known discomfort associated with an ill-fitting denture. Traditional dentures can easily slip out of place while the patient speaks or eats, and the ever-changing surface area of the gums can cause pain and irritation that interfere with daily life. This leaves many denture wearers longing for a solution that more closely mimics the stability, strength, and appearance of real teeth. Dental implants offer these advantages.
Because a dental implant is securely positioned within the jawbone, it provides a strong foundation for a variety of custom restorations. Implants are capable of supporting single crowns, bridges, and even entire arch replacement teeth. With dental implants, you can smile openly, indulge in your favorite foods, and once again enjoy the full benefits of an attractive, natural-looking smile.
