There may come a point in the not-so-distant future when you realize that you are not going to be able to keep all of your natural teeth. Maybe you’ve already reached that point and are dealing with the decision of wearing dentures. Let our Carmel, IN dental office help you through this process!
You see, we understand dentures! We know that 25% of Americans over the age of 60 are going to end up wearing these false teeth, and we want to be able to offer you the best information and solutions possible! Many adults make the wrong call when it comes to replacing their teeth, and it can impact their lifespan!
Yes, you read that correctly. The Mayo clinic has found that patients who live without functioning teeth will live about 10 years less than they would if they’d maintained the ability to chew naturally. We know what you’re thinking, isn’t that the point of dentures?
Well, that’s what we would like to talk about today. Patients often think that any set of dentures will enable them to eat their food and enjoy life, but that is often not the case. Let’s take a look at this topic in more detail.
Economy and Average Dentures Don’t Make the Grade
Most of that 25% of people over 60 wearing dentures are wearing economy or average dentures. Economy dentures are cheap, placed immediately in your mouth without much fitting, and offer very little true help to your mouth. Average dentures do require some fitting, but they still leave a lot to be desired!
You see, these solutions look like teeth, and they sometimes move like teeth, but at the end of the day, they aren’t teeth, and they can’t function like teeth. When you switch from your natural teeth to dentures, you lose 80% of your bite power! That means eating nutritious foods is no longer an option because you won’t be able to chew them!
You can try the adhesives and endless fittings, but at the end of the day, you’ll find that your dentures just aren’t what you need them to be!
Invest in Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentures
Here at Really Smile, we believe in a different approach to dentures. We only use cosmetic dentures for our patients because cosmetic dentures go the extra mile. They are made to actually fit your mouth so perfectly that your jaw believes your teeth are actually there! And the false teeth placed in the dentures are actually the right size! They will hold your jaw open, which will improve the look of your profile allowing you to lose a decade or more from your looks!
Make it Even Better with Dental Implant Support
Now that you have your dentures, we also recommend that you secure them in your mouth with dental implants. Dental implants will offer you many benefits, but we have selected a few of the most impressive to explain in more detail below.
With dental implants, you can…
… eat the foods you love
Once you have the support of implants for your cosmetic dentures, you will be able to gain a lot of your bite strength back! We can get you really close to the strength of your natural teeth, which means you won’t have to give up the foods you love. You can still enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables, which will help you stay healthy!
… smile and laugh with confidence
You’ll never be worried about your teeth slipping out of place. When someone asks you to smile, you’ll know that your teeth are in the correct position! You can open your mouth and laugh without ever checking that your dentures are secure! This is an incredible boost of confidence for you!
… maintain your youthful profile
One of the most detrimental things about economic dentures is the way your entire face changes shape. Your jawbone is left with nothing to do, so it fades away. By placing implants, we are giving your jaw a reason to stick around! That means that your jaw will maintain its shape, and you will maintain the youthful look of your smile!
