For some people, oral health is a lifelong struggle. For one reason or another, you might find yourself in a position where you have lost many or all of your original teeth, and you’ve struggled to find success with traditional dentures. Or, perhaps you haven’t yet tried standard dentures, and you are looking for a solid, lasting solution that will allow you to eat and smile like you haven’t in years.
Implant-retained dentures could be the perfect solution for your needs. It might not seem possible to be proud of your smile once again, or to eat freely without concern, but those are some of the possibilities opened up by this treatment.
A Worthwhile Process
One factor that sometimes causes people to think twice about going for implant-retained dentures is the time that it takes to complete the process from start to finish. Since the implants need time to heal, you aren’t going to have your new set of dentures in place right away. It will likely be a few months before you are able to enjoy the results that you are anxious to achieve.
Don’t let that investment of time keep you away from this option, however. Considering the impact that these new dentures will have on nearly every facet of your life, waiting a few months to get to the finished product will be time well spent.
Rediscover the Menu
One of the most frustrating things about having oral health issues that rob you of many of your natural teeth is the impact it can have on your diet. Some of the foods you long enjoyed eating might not be available to you anymore – and they may have been out of the question for years. From ribs to sticky treats and beyond, countless people miss out on delicious meals because their teeth aren’t up to the challenge.
People with implant-retained dentures find that they are able to start exploring the whole menu once again. In fact, you might be able to return to restaurants that you gave up on long ago, as they didn’t offer anything that you were able to eat comfortably.
A Look That’s Truly You
In addition to the struggles you’ll face eating some of your favorite foods, there is also the struggle that can come from looking in the mirror when most of your teeth are missing. It’s not even so much about what others think of your look – it’s about how your feel about yourself and what you see compared to what you expect. Between the lack of teeth in your smile and the potential for a sunken look in your face when your teeth are gone, you might not think you look like yourself any longer. Quality dentures will change that and bring back a you that you’ll recognize.
