A denture is like a wheelchair for your teeth. How are you getting around these days?
The truth about George Washington style antiquated dentures is this: They make you feel old and they don’t work. They never have. So, what do you do when the glue no longer works because so much of the jawbone has disappeared under the pressure of the lower denture? What choices do you have? Well, in as little as two months and in just a few appointments we can change your life.
When people are sentenced to life with a lower denture they lose confidence and the ability to enjoy the basic pleasures in life. Think about it for a moment: Do you worry that your teeth will slip out in public or in front of a loved one? What is it like to not be able to eat the foods you love and savor the rich flavors and textures of your favorite meals? How does it feel to not be able to smile or to have to hold your hand in front of your mouth to hide the fact that your teeth embarrass you? I can tell you firsthand that I have seen the devastating psychological, physical, and emotional damage. I have witnessed the pain that our patients endure as a result of not being able to enjoy these basic pleasures in life. I can also tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way. There is a solution – one that will change your life and allow you to regain the quality of life that you once enjoyed before you lost your teeth.
Changing your life begins with the placement of dental implants into the front part of the lower jaw. The solution is to get “Real Teeth for Life” by using dental implants to securely snap your lower teeth into place so that they are firmly attached while you speak, while you eat, and while you smile. Implants are placed on both the top and bottom jaw. Attachments that function like the snaps on a cowboy shirt are attached to the implants and to the denture. When the teeth are pressed onto the implants they “snap” into place and hold the teeth down. It is that simple, and like I said before, in as little as two months and in just a few appointments we can change your life.
There are many design options available for this technological miracle that changes lives each and every day. Two implants with snaps is the most basic and most economical design. My good friend, Dr. Lee Swearingen of Calcutta, Ohio, tells his patients, “Place just two implants and we can change the quality of your life. Place four implants and you will feel like you died and went to heaven.” If we place 5 implants you can have teeth that are permanently secured into place. With five, we can give you back the feeling that you have teenaged teeth again. We can turn back the clock.
So, what are you waiting for? Take implants for a test drive.
