Dr. Brown on Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Nobody should be wearing a loose-fitting denture! In today’s day in age, no one should need to be taking their teeth out of their mouth to clean them when technology like dental implants are available. Missing teeth can cause many people to struggle with self-esteem and confidence because they are embarrassed by their smile. 40 million people wear dentures, which is 15 percent of our population! However, thanks to periodontists like Dr. Brown, you can have a full set of teeth restored.

Once someone loses their teeth, they are out of the dental world and they only visit the dentist every 5-7 years. When a person has missing teeth and do not know dental implants are available, they are simply learning how to adapt without teeth. Many patients visit a periodontist for help with dental implants when they finally become frustrated with dentures and want to look at additional options.

What You Need to Know About Dental Implants

Patients can find out how easy it is to start enjoying life once again the same day. A dental implant is designed to allow a patient the ability to eat the next day! Patients need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brown to determine if you are a qualified candidate for dental implants. We have technology available to help us build bone where it is needed and technology to have a patient in need of multiple implants be capable of walking out the door the same day with a full set of teeth!

Why You Need to Toss Your Dentures

Dentures have large plastic in them, which can make it difficult to enjoy eating food. Lower dentures are particularly concerning as they often do not make it easy to speak. Many patients dealing with dentures find a unique satisfaction following surgery as they can finally enjoy some of their favorite foods again. In fact, here are some of the foods you can start enjoying once again thanks to dental implants:

  • Corn on the cob
  • Hard candies
  • Nuts
  • Apples
  • Carrots

Dental Implants Improve Your Life

There is no difference in the degree of functionality a patient has with dental implants when compared to traditional teeth. Several patients have undergone this procedure, only to find dental implants have completely changed their lives. Patients have been able to find confidence with new teeth and many have been able to obtain their career or personal goals thanks to dental implants.
