There’s something important missing from your mouth: your teeth.

Modern dentures look like real teeth, so you can have a complete and natural-looking smile once again.
Dentures also assist in speaking naturally as well. Many people don’t think about how teeth affect how they pronounce words … at least, not until those teeth are gone.
Of course, eating without teeth can be a real challenge. Having dentures allows you to eat many more foods than you could otherwise.
But there is a way to make your dentures even better …
Feel Like You’ve Got Real Teeth
Dentures are better than no teeth at all, but they are not like having real teeth again. There is a way to make them practically as good as healthy teeth, however.
Dental implants give you a way to replace the roots of your lost teeth. Modern implants have been around since the 1960s, and they have made dentures strong and stable. Studies have shown that people with implant-supported dentures can bite with nearly as much force as people who still have all their teeth.
As a result, people with implant-supported dentures can eat anything they want without worrying about their “teeth” getting pulled or pushed out of place. It also means you won’t need to used denture adhesives to keep your teeth from sliding around. The implants hold your dentures secure.
If you know you can eat anything you want, then you won’t have to worry about your dentures moving around while you are speaking, either.
Do More Than Smile Again
You can have a complete smile. You can feel confident that your replacement teeth won’t slide around. You can eat the foods that you love to eat, whether you are dining out or filling your plate at your family’s next get together.
