It’s hard to believe how different your life is today. You smile more. You can eat what you want. You aren’t embarrassed to talk in front of other people.
And it’s all because of a single visit to a dentist office in New Albany, IN. The One Day Smile Solution™ has made a big difference in your daily life.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that your quality of life has improved since you visited Dr. Ron Receveur and his team at New Albany Implants.
Your Life Without Teeth
If you are living without teeth, then you are familiar with how frustrating this can be.
When you don’t have teeth, you become more aware than you would like that people look at you differently than they once did. They might not say anything, but you can tell that they are judging you for your lack of teeth.
Even without that, you may have already felt self-conscious about speaking, smiling, or eating in front of other people. When you don’t have teeth to bite and chew food, it really limits what you can eat … much less what you are willing to eat in front of other people. And that includes your family and friends.
No matter how much you may like smoothies or soup, you probably would like to eat solid food sometimes, too.
Your Life With Dentures
Is this any improvement over having no teeth at all? Yes … but dentures also come with their own frustrations.
Today’s dentures can look more lifelike than they ever have. That’s good for the appearance of your smile as long as your dentures don’t slip out of place, which they will. And the longer you have dentures, the more often this will happen.
Before we explain why that is, we want to address another issue — eating with dentures. Having dentures will allow you to eat some foods, but it’s not like having your teeth again.
Traditional dentures are not anchored to anything. They rest over your gums, which is why they get pushed or pulled if you bite into certain foods (like apples or corn on the cob). This also is why chewing can take a lot more effort. Even with dentures, eating may feel more like a chore than something you enjoy.
If you’ve had dentures for any amount of time, then you have learned that they can fall out while you are talking, too. It’s hard to explain to someone else how annoying this can be.
Why are eating and speaking such problems with traditional dentures? It’s because your dentures are not anchored to your jaw. As a result, your dentures are basically floating on your gums. At the same time, your jawbone is shrinking. This changes the shape of your mouth, and it changes how well — or poorly — your dentures fit.
The One Day Smile Solution™ Can Fix Your Denture Problem
Dr. Ron Receveur developed this solution through a combination of training, technology, and a desire to provide patients with the best possible experience with their replacement teeth.
When you visit New Albany Implants for this procedure, you will be getting implant-supported dentures.
Dental implants take the place of the roots of your missing teeth. Like those roots, the implants are placed directly in your jaw. This allows them to act as anchors for your dentures, making them secure, stable, and strong. This also prevents your jaw from continuing to get smaller.
At the end of your appointment, a temporary set of replacement teeth will be attached to your dental implants. In the following weeks, your mouth will heal, and you will notice your bite getting stronger.
In time, you will be ready for your permanent dentures, and when you are, you will be able to eat practically as well as someone with a full set of healthy teeth.
It may be hard to believe, but this is why patients have traveled from all over the United States to be treated by Dr. Ron at New Albany Implants.
