Whether you’re a current candidate for dental implants or just hoping to learn more about their usage, Dr. Rob sat down with Cara Chatellier of Bubbly Creative to answer all of your questions!
So my first question is, what are dental implants?
Well, dental implants are man-made anchors that are placed into the bone, and on top of them, we can build anything from a tooth to an entire set of teeth.
Now people are typically happier with implant retained dentures and bridges, rather than traditional dentures. Why is that the case?
Well, there are a lot of reasons for that. First of all, if you’ve been wearing dentures, once you have a set of teeth built on top of implants, then your ability to chew just grows up so dramatically. You can now eat the things that you ate years before, like apples and raw vegetables, and steaks. Your ability to chew is just vastly superior!
Another thing is that when you compare the size of a denture to the size of an implant restored denture, they’re much smaller. And the size of it means there’s less material in the mouth. There’s better taste. You can speak more naturally, and you don’t have to fight to keep the denture in place with your tongue and your muscles.
Another thing that people really like about it is that the denture is now much more secure. It doesn’t come in and out, unless you want it to come in and out!. So you don’t have to worry about it slipping, which can interfere with your speech, as well as chewing. And it can be very embarrassing in a social situation.
So, implants with retained dentures and bridges can drastically affect people’s confidence?
