Many people who are missing multiple teeth can relate to this scenario:
A family member or friend suggest someplace to eat. It could be a new restaurant or just a place you’ve never been. Instead of being excited, your first thought may be, “Will I be able to eat anything?”
Whether you are living without teeth or with traditional dentures, you are likely all too aware of the limitations on your ability to bite and chew many foods. Not knowing what the restaurant will have on the menu may make you hesitant to join your friend or relative.
You can change that feeling. Instead of anxiety about whether you’ll be able to eat anything, you can feel eager about the opportunity to try something new.
You can come to our Charlotte, NC office where you could get dental implants to secure your replacement teeth so you can bite and chew anything you would like. To learn more, plan to visit McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry by calling 704-766-8662.
Experience a Better Quality of Life
It may sound like a bold claim, but it’s something we have seen happen time and again for our patients. Implant-supported dentures don’t just give them a natural-looking smile; they also have improved their daily lives.
Implants make your replacement teeth more secure. That means you don’t need to use any adhesives to keep them in your mouth. You don’t need to reapply those adhesives, and the taste of the adhesives don’t interfere with the flavor of things that you eat.
With implant-supported dentures, you won’t waste energy wondering when your teeth may fall out in the middle of a sentence. You can speak naturally and normally.
And as we have noted already, you can eat anything you want. That’s good for your enjoyment of your meals. It also means you can eat the variety of foods that nutritionists recommend for good health.
Make Your New Teeth Stronger
To understand the value of implants, let’s use an analogy.
If you were building a fence, you could try to balance it on top of the ground. It might stay up. It might not. If you leaned on it or leaned something against it, you probably wouldn’t be surprised if it moved or even fell over.
To make your fence secure and stable, you would probably start by putting in fence posts. These will anchor your fence to the ground and help it stay standing even if something presses against it.
In a sense, implants are like those fence posts. Implants take the place of the roots of your missing teeth. They create a direct connection from your jawbone to your dentures. As a result, your dentures are more secure. You also are able to generate more force in each bite and chew.
Knowing this, you won’t be worried about ordering anything you want when you dine out.
Trust Your Teeth Replacements
With dental implants, you can feel more confident that your replacement teeth will stay where you want them to be. To find out if implants are right for you, schedule a consultation at McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry.
