The problems with dentures include slipping, gum irritation, trouble eating and talking, bone loss, and inability to taste food due to a covered palate. Clearly, dentures do not feel and function like natural teeth.
Good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups can help you avoid the need for dentures later in your life, but other factors can make dental replacements an inevitability.
The good news? Modern dental implant technology is making dentures a thing of the past.
At La Costa Dental Excellence we have information and expertise that can help bring hope to Encinitas denture wearers through dental implant technology. There are a variety of effective denture/implant tooth configurations.
Call La Costa Dental Excellence at 760-268-9582 to book an implant supported dentures consultation with Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth. We can help you understand your options and can recommend options.
If you currently wear traditional dentures and are not happy with them, implant anchored dentures may dramatically change your life. Your chewing ability will be similar to that of natural teeth and you will be able to eat hard foods again. How about a thick T-bone at your favorite Carlsbad steakhouse? In addition to being able to enjoy your meal, you will avoid the embarrassment of having your dentures rattle around in your mouth in public.
Before you pay for another denture reline, ask your Carlsbad dentist about the possibility of dental implants. While tooth implants are a significant investment, the dental implant cost is very reasonable when you consider they can last a lifetime.
Attention Carlsbad denture wearers: there is life after dentures with tooth implants!
Come see us at La Costa Dental Excellence at 7730 Rancho Santa Fe Rd Ste 106 in Carlsbad, 92009 for more information about dental implants.
