Getting a new smile after you’ve lost your natural teeth is a very exciting thing! It can feel overwhelming, but at the same time, the possibilities seem endless! Most adults still go for traditional dentures, but they soon discover that dentures aren’t always very comfortable. That’s why we love implant-retained dentures! They take dentures to a whole new level. Take a look at some of our favorite things about implant-retained dentures.
1. The Roof of your Mouth is Clear
Most dentures include a plastic shell across the roof of your mouth for added stability and fit. Unfortunately, that artificial palate takes away the taste of your food! Implant-retained dentures don’t need that palate, so your tasting ability is still intact!
2. You Can Still Use Your Chompers
Patients who have been wearing dentures for a while will know that the foods available to chew are very slim. Most of those foods are soft because dentures remove about 75% of your bite strength. Implant-retained dentures restore your ability to eat most foods.
3. You’ll Feel Great!
Traditional dentures make you feel great at first, but that feeling starts to fade when your teeth don’t fit so well anymore. Implant-retained dentures bring back your confidence and boldness when you smile. You will feel and look younger!
When you’re in need of a complete dental restoration, consider implant-retained dentures. You will feel the difference immediately! Contact us today to learn more about your options for restorations. We’d love to hear from you soon!
