It finally came in the mail. Your 40th high school reunion is coming up soon. Has it really been that long?
You are looking forward to catching up with some of your old pals and learning where their lives have taken them. That’s a lot of talking for one night.
What’s on the menu? Steak or chicken. Both sound good to you.

Make Your Life Better
The scenario above may not be exactly what you envision when you think about replacing lost teeth. However, countless individuals have come to us because they are sick and tired of either (a) living without teeth or (b) struggling with loose dentures.
These may seem like small issues until you are dealing with them day after day. You start to find that you don’t want to speak up because it’s more difficult to pronounce words or because your “teeth” move in a way that garbles what you are saying. You stop looking forward to dining out or family gatherings because you never know if you will be able to eat anything. Plus, you can’t eat many things that you want to eat because of problems biting and chewing.
Even the solutions for loose dentures come with their own problems. Dentures adhesives can hold your teeth in place temporarily, which can help you get through a meeting or a meal. However, the adhesives wear off and have to be replaced. They also don’t restore your full biting power, so many foods are still off the menu when you have dentures, with or without adhesives.
You should waste mental energy wondering how to work around a situation. Instead, you should choose a teeth replacement solution that takes away those worries.
Feel Like Yourself
Losing your teeth affects you physically. Without roots, you risk bone loss in your jaw. That can change how your dentures fit. It also can change your physical appearance. That, in turn, can change your self-perception. The psychological effects of tooth loss are, in many ways, more significant than the physical problems.
Fortunately, implants can address the underlying physical issues, which can help you regain your self-esteem along with your healthy smile.
Implants act as substitute roots. They stimulate your jaw to prevent bone loss. They anchor your dentures to your jaw. This holds your dentures securely in place, and it allows you to bite and chew naturally.
