Thanksgiving is a holiday centered not only around family, friends and giving thanks, but enjoying a good meal or two with those closest to you. If you currently wear dentures, you might feel more than a bit of apprehension when it comes to eating, especially if your current dentures aren’t the best fit. Here at Firewheel Dental Implants and Periodontics, we want to open your eyes to the many benefits that await when you switch from dentures to dental implants.
One of the best things about getting implants is that you’ll experience increased comfort when it comes to speaking and eating, comfort you might be missing with your current dentures. That comfort is sure to translate into confidence in your daily life, confidence that’s sure to shine through in various interactions and settings.
Keep Your Teeth From Shifting
While dentures can replace missing teeth, there’s no guarantee your teeth won’t start to shift into the gaps left behind. Shifts and gaps often result in a number of different oral complications, what’s more is the fact that you could spend vast amounts of money addressing such complications. Letting a periodontist set you up with dental implants can prevent shifting and unnecessary spending and oral problems down the road.
Preserve Your Jawbone
Something else that commonly happens when you lose teeth and neglect to replace them is your jawbone can start to weaken and deteriorate where you have gaps in your mouth. This wearing away of the jawbone happens because you don’t have tooth roots to provide your bone with proper stimulation. Left to go on long enough, aggressive deterioration can make it that much more difficult for you to get implants in the future.
Preserve Your Facial Structure
The wearing away of your jawbone is sure to impact the overall structure of your face, giving you a sunken-in appearance that can affect your self-confidence. Dental implants can allow you to retain a more youthful appearance.
