A denture completely covers the roof of the mouth. It rests on the soft tender gums, and
damages the supporting bone, causing gum shrinkage and a poor fit. Over 50,000,000
people in the United States struggle, daily, with dentures, removable partial dentures or no
teeth at all. A majority suffer a great deal of discomfort as a result of loose and ill-fitting
dentures. Many denture wearers simply withdraw from any type of social engagement
because of embarrassment.
Implants are a natural-looking way to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants
can span an area of several missing teeth to create a fixed (not removable) bridge or
stabilize a denture. When you choose dental implants, you can enjoy the beauty of a natural-
looking smile, reclaim the ability to eat foods you love, and regain the confidence to interact
with family and friends. People with teeth eat a better diet, and on the average live 10 years
longer than those that wear dentures. Dental implants not only restore your smile, but help
you improve your quality of life.
