If you ask a former denture-wearer who has had a complete tooth replacement with dental implants, they’ll tell you: “Everything.”
- Pain from dentures;
- Teeth that fall out whilst talking;
- Not being able to eat your favourite foods anymore.
Pain: Even the best pair of dentures will move slightly in the mouth when eating and talking. This movement can cause painful ulcers that can ultimately make daily activities a significant struggle.
Crunchy foods: Denture-wearers also have to avoid their favourite hard and crunchy foods. Nuts, blocks of chocolate, carrots and apples. All of these can be difficult to chew with wobbly dentures and may fracture the delicate prosthesis.
Embarrassing faux-pas: Most denture-wearers have also experienced their teeth falling out of their mouth mid-conversation. This embarrassing situation is not ideal for anyone experiencing dental discomfort and results in a serious beating of self confidence. This embarrassment bring many people to Dr Helen’s Dental and Implant Studio in Melbourne to discuss their options in regards to a dental plan and solution.
Dr Helen uses special dental implant technology that secures a fixed bridge of natural-looking teeth on four to six implants, placed strategically in the mouth. Because these teeth are fixed, they don’t move when eating or talking and throughout your day-to-day activities. They also don’t have to be removed at any point, such as going to sleep, so patients who find it difficult to see themselves without teeth, no longer have to. No more painful ulcers, no more loss of teeth. And best of all? Dr Helen says: “You can eat anything you want. Carrots, nuts, apples. The bridge is reinforced by a titanium bar that is guaranteed for life which makes dental implant bridges the strongest alternative to your own natural teeth.”
