It’s easy to take for granted the crucial role that our teeth play in our nutrition and overall well-being. Healthy, natural teeth allow us to chew and ingest nutrient-rich foods. While removable dentures may resemble the appearance of real teeth, unfortunately, they aren’t nearly as effective at their primary role: chewing food.
Many denture-wearers actually encounter the problem of malnutrition because they find eating with replacement teeth to be uncomfortable or even painful. And for some denture-wearers, they abstain from social outings and their favorite foods for fear that some embarrassing mishap might occur if they try to eat with loose-fitting dentures.
Cannon Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery wants you to enjoy a healthy and happy lifestyle, even if you have had to part with your natural teeth. Dental implants offer many of our patients the confidence and ability to eat their favorite delicious foods that sustain health.
Dental implants are a possible solution for those who have lost their teeth due to periodontal disease or traumatic injury. Implants serve as sturdy anchors for replacement teeth because they are inserted into the natural bone, which actually grows around the post, permanently holding it in place. A crown is custom-made for the replacement tooth, and it matches the appearance of the rest of your natural teeth.
So, with dental implants, your smile is restored with replacement teeth that truly look real, and you can also enjoy all your favorite foods once again!
