If you have dentures, then you may be familiar with these problems …
➤ You want to go out to eat but you have to decide if you want to use a denture adhesive (which interferes with the taste of your food) or severely limit what you can eat.
➤ Plus, your dentures adhesive doesn’t work as well as you would.
➤ The longer you have your dentures, the looser they feel.
➤ You are starting to get sores under your dentures because they move around so much.
➤ You feel reluctant to go out in public because you don’t know when your “teeth” could fall out … again!
You don’t have to keep living with these hassles, these worries, or these pains.
You can come to New Albany Implants instead. We can secure your dentures with dental implants so you can quit fighting with your “teeth” and start enjoying your life again.
Enjoy The Taste Of Your Food!
We’ve heard about every complaint you can imagine from patients who are sick and tired of loose-fitting dentures.
One that matters to many people is the simple ability to enjoy the pleasure of eating. Whether you have a sweet tooth, you like salty snacks, or you are a fan of bitter greens and herbs, you probably want to taste those tastes.
When you have to use denture adhesives, everything can kind of start to taste the same — like denture adhesive. The thing is, the longer you have your dentures, the more likely you will be to need adhesives to (sort of) keep them in place.
With implant-supported dentures, you can throw away your adhesives and start enjoying your food again.
Let Dr. Receveur and our team at New Albany Implants show you what we can do.
Eat The Foods You Want To Eat!
The problems with eating with traditional dentures go far beyond adhesives. A gooey paste is only going to help so much.
Even with it, you may have to be careful about what you put on your plate at the next family reunion. You may want to eat that corn on the cob, but you have serious doubts that your dentures are secure enough to let you take a bite.
That isn’t the only problem. If you enjoy — or used to enjoy — juicy steak, you may find that chewing is a lot more difficult with dentures than it was when you had all your teeth.
Studies have shown that dentures wearers only regain a fraction of their biting force (about 1/4 is about the best you can hope for). That means you have to chew that much longer to break down your food. It also means it takes longer to eat, or worse, that you don’t get as much nutrition as you should.
In contrast, patients with implant-supported dentures can restore nearly all of their original biting and chewing power. They also can eat all the foods they want without wearing out their jaw muscles trying to chew it.
Feel Confident That Your Teeth Will Stay In Place
Maybe you aren’t planning to go on another job interview at this stage in your life, but you still have plenty of reasons to want be able to speak clearly.
It could be something as simple as reading a story to your grandchildren, placing an order at a restaurant, or swapping (possibly) true stories on your next fishing trip.
All of those things are easier to do when you feel confident that your dentures are going to stay in place when you start talking.
If you had dentures for any amount of time, then you know they can come loose at unexpected and inconvenient times.
You can stop that by getting a set of dental implants at our dentist office in New Albany, IN.
Implants make your dentures stable and secure, so you can trust to that you will get to the punchline of your joke or to the “happily ever after” part of the story for your grandkids.
Trust is important in any relationship. That includes your relationship with your dentures.
Dr. Receveur and the New Albany Implants team have been helping patients feel more confident about their smiles and much more thanks to dental implants.
