Dental Implants: The Smart And Healthy Way To Replace Missing Teeth

  • January 28, 2016

Almost everyone has met an older person whose speech is suffering because of loose dentures. If you haven’t met someone like that, then you’ve probably seen the old cartoonish stereotype of an old man who unintentionally whistles when he talks as a result of unsecured dentures. It’s ridiculous to think that someone in Sterling Heights, MI, should have to suffer through the inconveniences that come along with loose dentures. The reasons that traditional dentures can come loose include your gums shrinking and your dentures no longer fitting, inferior denture adhesive that doesn’t properly bond your dentures to your teeth, and having inferior dentures that don’t fit.

Put An End To The Annoyance Of Traditional Dentures

Some people may think that they are just stuck with traditional dentures because they think there are no other worthy options. But the fact is that there are other options that can put an end to the terrible annoyances that traditional dentures create! The best and most healthy teeth replacement option comes in the form of dental implants! The benefits that dental implants bring to the table make you wonder why anyone would ever even consider any other tooth replacement option! The benefits of dental implants include but are not limited to:

  • Being secure in your mouth. The fact that dental implants are fixed in your jaw puts an end to replacement teeth moving around when you are doing things like talking and chewing. When you have loose dentures, you will have to watch what you eat because certain foods can damage your dentures. With dental implants, you’ll never have to worry about what foods you eat because you will have no limitations! In fact, nobody will be able to tell the difference between your dental implants and your natural teeth!
  • Ensuring that you don’t have any bone or tissue loss as a result of losing teeth. When dental implants are placed, they will effectively replace the roots of your teeth that were lost along with your natural teeth. Replacing those missing roots is a great thing for your oral health because it will keep you from losing precious gum tissue and bone that surrounded your natural teeth. If you don’t replace the roots of your teeth, your jaw will shrink and it will affect your appearance by making you look older.

You Have A Choice Of Many Different Types Of Dental Implants

Dental implants aren’t only for people who have lost all of their teeth! There are actually a few different types of dental implants that are all superior options when compared to things like bridges and traditional dentures. Whether you are missing just one tooth or you’re missing just a few, we have you covered at Forever Young Dentistry with dental implants! The types of implant options that we have available include:

  • All-on-4 implant-retained dentures. This more technologically advanced version of traditional dentures includes a few implants placed in your upper and/or lower jaws that are attached to a full set of dentures. This keeps you from having to deal with ineffective dental adhesives to keep your teeth from moving around. Though All-on-4 dentures aren’t removable by you, they will be secure in your mouth and make for easy chewing and talking.
  • Single dental implants. If you have just lost one tooth and want it replaced in the most healthy way possible, single dental implants are the best choice for you. The single implant will resemble your natural teeth that surround it as well as replace the roots of that tooth that is lost.    
  • Full-mouth dental implants. If you have lost all of your teeth, we can replace each and every one of them with amazing dental implants!
