Dentures are the most common solution to the age old fact that as we get older, our teeth, just like our children, often leave us to live out their separate lives in the world.  Granted, your teeth probably do not call on your birthday or come spend Christmas week with you – nor do they make cute little grandkids for you to play with, but you get the picture. Teeth, sometimes, do not last forever.

Dentures:  the traditional solution
Most people who lose their teeth go to the dentist to get fitted for dentures, and then there is the added bonus of being able to impress your little grandkids with the way you can pull out your teeth and put them back in.  Unfortunately, though, this aspect of dentures – the fact that they are removable – represents one of the biggest challenges to denture wearers.  That knee-slapper joke that your best friend tells, the one that makes you want to laugh so hard it hurts, suddenly becomes a threat.  If you laugh too hard, will your teeth fall out?  And then there is the problem of enjoying certain foods, like chewing gum, toffee, or a big juicy steak.  All these things we love, but enjoying them with dentures becomes a lot more complicated. 

At some point, denture wearers may wonder -- is there a better alternative to dentures? The answer, thankfully, is yes, and it is found in dental implants.

Dental implants are the answer to your problems with dentures
Many people who currently wear dentures or need new dentures are surprised to discover the many amazing benefits that modern dental implants can give them and that dental implants are a miraculous solution to your problems with dentures.  For example, complete teeth replacement dental implants are permanent porcelain overdentures and they are not removable, so no more worrying about your teeth floating around in your mouth.  Albeit, you will not be able to entertain your grandkids by taking them out anymore, but for most people this minor inconvenience is a small price to pay.  More seriously, dental implants are strong and beautiful and they will fill out your face again.  They give you solid teeth again, teeth that are yours, which you can use to enjoy so many foods that you never thought you would be able to enjoy after receiving dentures.
