We all like a little bit of excitement in our lives.
It’s the reason people watch scary movies. It’s the reason people ride roller coasters and jump out of airplanes. It’s even part of the reason some people get tattoos.
If you are thrill-seeker who likes to live on the edge, then stay away from dental implants when you are thinking about replacing your teeth.
Implants will hold your dentures securely in place. That’s hardly the kind of experience you’ll want if you prefer to live life on the edge.
Just so you know, we do offer dental implants as one of the restorative services at Lapalco Family Dental. Our dentist is convinced that people in and around Marrero, LA, want stability with their dentures.
The Challenge Of Speaking Your Mind
We think that everyone has a right to express his or her opinion, whether it’s about Presidential candidates or something really important like college football or where to get the best barbecue.
If you go through the trouble of getting dental implants at our Louisiana dental center, then your dentures will be incredibly secure and stable in your mouth.
You will be able to say exactly what you want to say, and you won’t have to worry about your dentures coming loose as you are about to make your best point. You won’t be concerned that your “teeth” with fall out just as you are about to make a funny joke.
You can even read a whole story to your grandchildren without getting tripped up on loose-fitting dentures a single time.
If you are the adventurous type, then you will have a lot more excitement with traditional dentures. At any moment, your dentures could come loose. You may not be able to explain what you are looking for to a salesperson, or you could have trouble placing your order in a restaurant.
With implants, you can do each of those things easily. Where’s the fun in that?
Speaking Of Food …
Many people think of adventurous eaters as people who are willing to try a variety of unusual foods.
Sure, you can try octopus, haggis, blood pudding, or escargot, but that’s only one way to turn your next meal into a true adventure.
Instead, you could walk into your favorite restaurant with nothing by a set of dentures to bite and chew your food. Then, you can order corn on the cob, steak, and carrots. Crunchy foods can challenge your ability to bite into them. They may even pull your dentures loose. Think of how much fun that could be for you and the other people at your table.
Steak poses a different kind of challenge as chewing it much difficult with traditional dentures.
And skip the typical soft desserts (cakes, ice cream) and go for something bolder, like peanut brittles. It’s sticky and crunchy so eating that with nothing by dentures will be a real thrill.
See, if you get implant-supported dentures, you will be able to eat practically as well as someone with real teeth. You’ll be able to bite into corn and carrots comfortably. You’ll be able to chew the steak with little or no strain.
Indeed, dental implants will make your dentures both more secure and stronger. That’s the kind of combination that makes it too easy to eat whatever you want.
Living On The Edge
If you do decide to get dental implants, you will be doing something that will make your dentures more stable than they could ever be on their own.
By using implants, you are replacing the roots of your teeth. When the implants are embedded in your jaw, you will need some time to heal before your dentures are attached.
In the long-term, the implants will help to sustain the health of your jaw, which make it much less likely that you will need to have your dentures refitted on a regular basis.
But think about what you will be missing. You won’t have dentures that could slip out at any moment when you are a sharing a story from your last vacation. You won’t wonder if your next bite will pull your replacement teeth from your mouth, either.
You’ll just be stuck with a nice smile and dentures that stay in place because of your dental implants.
How Adventurous Do You Want To Be?
You spend your days wondering when your “teeth” will fall out next, or you could live knowing that your implant-supported dentures will remain secure.
