If you would have trouble eating steak and corn on the cob with your current dentures you might want to consider Implant Retained Dentures.  These specialty dentures are a sort of cross between dental implants and dentures.

Dental implants are an extremely popular choice for denture stability and replacement of missing teeth and they are always an option if you need to replace teeth. But if you have decided that a mouth full of dental implants is not for you, why not get a few implants which can be used to anchor your denture securely in your mouth.

Implant Retained Dentures give you a more natural smile and because of the stability provided by the dental implants your dentures will function more like natural teeth than regular dentures. You will enjoy expanded food options (corn on the cob, yum!), the elimination of messy adhesives from your medicine cabinet and improved speech, comfort and appearance.

As a bonus the dental implants will help to preserve the bone in your jaw, preventing bone shrinkage and the resulting collapse of the lower one third of your face ( think Granny Clampett from the Beverly Hillbillies). Food tastes better too because the roof of your mouth is not covered, leaving vital taste buds exposed.

With Implant Retained Dentures your dentures will not fall out when you sneeze or laugh, gnaw on a rack of ribs or dig into a big steak. Just imagine, you can eat what you want, laugh at what you find funny, help blow out the birthday candles and count on your high school cronies recognizing you at the next high school reunion. Ask Dr. Lathangue if Implant Retained Dentures are right for you. Contact Dogwood Dental for more information or to book an appointment.
