Denture wearers, are you tired of dealing with denture slippage or the messy adhesives you have to use to hold them in place? Or maybe you’re someone dealing with the discomfort of a severely cracked or broken tooth? You might even be having difficulty eating properly due to missing teeth? If any of these describe your situation, you may be a candidate for dental implants.
Dr. Gianni Franceschi of Smiles of Trinity Family Dentistry, a respected dental practice in Trinity, FL, would like you to be educated about what dental implants can do for you and your dental issues.
1. You are missing one or more of your natural teeth.
It can be embarrassing to talk or smile with gaps in your smile from missing teeth can be embarrassing and make you self-conscious. A dental implant will fill in the empty space where your natural tooth was once located with a natural-looking and functional artificial tooth.
2. You have a damaged tooth that cannot be saved.
If you crack or break a tooth badly enough, a dental implant may be the only way to fully restore the natural appearance and functioning of your teeth. Although dentists always try their best to save as much of the original structure of the tooth as possible, sometimes a tooth is just too damaged. If this is the case, it may need to be removed and replaced. The best option for this is a dental implant.. These implants look and feel so natural, most people will probably be unaware you have an implant. In fact, you might even forget you have one!
3. Your partials or dentures are loose.
If you have loose-fitting dentures or partials, your dentures clicking, slipping or even falling out may be a constant concern. Implants are an excellent alternative to dentures and partials because they are permanently attached. Once they are in, you will never need to remove them for cleaning or maintenance. In fact, implants only need to be brushed and flossed around like your natural teeth.
4. You have a sunken-in look to your facial appearance.
Some denture-wearers have a sunken-in or caved-in appearance to their mouths even when wearing their restorations. Unfortunately, this is a common condition for patients who wear dentures due to bone loss as they age. Since dentures do not stimulate bone growth in the jaw as the roots of natural teeth and implants do, the bone tissue continues to erode over time, resulting in mouth regression- the technical term for this shrunken mouth. Dental implants can stimulate bone growth in the jaw around the implant, reinforcing the strength of your implant.
