Problems with dentures include slipping, gum irritation, trouble eating and talking, bone loss, and an inability to taste food due to a covered palate.
To put it plainly, 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 offers a better tooth restoration solution. 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.
How about a thick T-bone at your favorite Boise steakhouse? Corn on the cob at the Western Idaho Fair? The pleasure of a crisp apple? Not only will you enjoy your favorite foods again, you’ll avoid the embarrassment of having your dentures rattle around in your mouth in public.
Before you pay for another denture reline, ask your Boise dentist about the possibility of dental implants.
