Frustrated with your dentures? Have you ever considered what life might be like if they were ‘fixed’ into place – essentially ending much of the downside of dentures?
If you are a denture sufferer, you may benefit from “implant-retained dentures” (dentures fixed into place with dental implants). These allow you to eat a wider range of food. But, even more important, implants keep dentures from moving, clicking and allow your dentures to function more like your natural teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium inserts designed to take replicate a tooth’s natural root structure – essentially, an artificial root. They are easily placed with minimally-invasive outpatient surgery, and are designed for those with a missing tooth or teeth, or, those without teeth.
Dental implants can solve a variety of problems, including leading to better digestion, too. In fact, those with dental implants find they are able to chew their foods better, aiding in the digestive process, which is difficult without all of your teeth’s natural crushing and grinding power. Dental implants have been recorded in research studies to improve your overall confidence and your love life!
