Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. We certainly enjoy spending time with family. We enjoy a day watching parades and football (even if the crowds are smaller this year).
We also look forward to the great food. We can almost taste the turkey, ham, dressing, and all kinds of desserts.
If you are missing teeth, you also may be missing out on some of your favorite dishes, sides, and sweets. It would be difficult to change that before this holiday season, but we can give you a reason to look forward to next year’s feast.
We can help you get dental implants. With them, you can eat anything you would like.
To get yours, started by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Wesley Nelson. Call 954-737-3174 to plan your visit to Nelson Dental Arts in Coral Springs, FL.
Make Your Decision
Imagine these two scenarios.
First, you have a set of traditional dentures. To keep them from sliding around too much, you slather on denture adhesives. Sure, you can eat some things, but probably not everything you want. Even with the added help, you can’t quite bite and chew as well as you would like. You also can’t enjoy the full flavor of what you eat because of the adhesive.
While you are trying to talk to a loved one (in person or on video), your dentures slide around. You might try to laugh it off, yet you feel frustrated and maybe a little embarrassed.
In the second scenario, you have implant-supported dentures. You pile whatever you would like on your plate. You can bite and chew as well as you could before you lost your teeth. And when you speak, you have no concerns about your teeth moving around.
Plus you can really savor the taste of your food since you don’t need any adhesive. Your teeth are secure and stable.
What Implants Do
When you lose teeth, you are missing roots as well. Without your roots, you don’t have that connection to your jawbone. As a consequence, your jaw doesn’t receive the stimulation it needs to create new bone tissue.
Without new tissue to replace old tissue (which is resorbed by your body), your jaw will deteriorate. Dentures can recreate your smile, but they don’t restore the connection to your jaw. In other words, dentures are incomplete teeth replacements.
Implants are made to replace tooth roots. They are placed directly in your jawbone. Your jaw bonds to your implants to keep them firmly in position.
With a series of implants, you have a strong foundation to support your dentures. The implants connect your dentures to your jaw. That allows you to put significantly more force into your bite compared to dentures alone.
The implants also provide the same kind of stimulation that your roots once did. This keeps your jaw making new tissue, which can keep it healthy for decades to come.
