Think Small To Make 2019 A Year Of Big Smiles
You are a little worried. Trying new restaurants used to be fun, but now you have dentures.
You are sure that there will be plenty of options on the menu that you would like to try. The problem is you don’t know how well you’ll be able to bite and chew them. Instead of enjoying the experience, you find yourself hunting for something you know won’t pull your teeth out of place.
Of course, that’s not your only concern. Sometimes when you talk, your dentures move around. That can make for some awkward moments when you’re placing your order or just trying to have a conversation with someone.
You don’t have to keep living this way. Instead, you could get mini dental implants to keep your dentures securely in place. Then you could order whatever you wanted and speak freely, without any worries about losing your teeth.
To learn more about how you could get mini implants, plan a visit to Parkway Dental in Snellville, GA. Call 770-676-1122 to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors.
What Implants Do For Your Dentures
Modern implants are designed to duplicate what roots did for your real teeth. They anchor your replacement teeth to your jawbone, which is important for multiple reasons.
First, you won’t need to use any adhesives if you have implant-supported dentures. Anyone who has been using adhesives for years will understand why that is important. At best, adhesives provide temporary benefits, but even then, your dentures aren’t exactly as secure as healthy teeth. Many patients also have complained about how adhesives change the taste of their food. By getting implants, you can savor those flavors once again.
Second, implants connect your jawbone and your dentures. This is important both for your dentures and for your jaw. This connection allows you to put more force into every bite that you take, which means you can continue eating the foods that you love. That in turn, stimulates your jawbone to make new bone tissue, which is good for your jaw health.
Going Small Has Some Real Benefits
So, why would someone get minis instead of standard implants?
Well, if you’ve had dentures for years, you likely have experience bone loss in your jaw. That in and of itself may not make it possible to support full-sized implant without extra work. Specifically, you might need a bone graft to rebuild the jaw, then wait to recover from that procedure before you can get implants.
By getting mini implants, you can skip the bone graft, secure your dentures, and start enjoying the benefits of having implant-supported dentures sooner.
Even if you can support full-sized implants, you may choose to get minis since placing them is a less invasive procedure. Again, that reduces your recovery time, so you can enjoy your secure dentures earlier than you would otherwise.
Make Your Bite As Good As Your Bark
Having stable, strong dentures can make a real difference in your everyday life. Don’t miss out on the things you want to eat or bite your tongue for fear of losing your teeth. Call 770-676-1122 or contact us online to find out more about getting mini dental implants from Parkway Dental
