The Eight Lifestyle Changes Wilmington Residents Can Expect
From Dental Implants, PART 1
This four-part article series presents eight incredible lifestyle changes that typically
result from replacing old dentures and failing teeth with dental implants.
Through rampant tooth decay, gum disease and excessive wear-and-tear, many of us arrive at our golden years with
missing teeth and teeth that are terribly worn, unattractive and even painful to eat with. The solution of yesteryear
was to whip out whatever remaining teeth you had and get removable dentures fitted. But, with the advent of dental
implant technology in the latter part of the 20th Century and its subsequent sophistication over the decades since,
dentures should have become redundant.
Unfortunately, they haven’t and currently, thousands of residents struggle with the crippling daily challenges and
endless expenses associated with this archaic technology. What Wilmington dental implant surgeons have decided to
do is club together and present the eight amazing lifestyle changes that anyone can expect from exchanging poorly
functional and unaesthetic dentures with dental implants. With a much better understanding of what’s capable with
this new, breakthrough technology, it is hoped that more Wilmington residents will be willing to make the smarter
investment in their oral health and quality of life.
Dental Implant Benefits # 1: A brand new smile that looks natural and
There are many reasons that traditional removable dentures fall short of helping patients to smile with confidence.
They tend to be bulky and so they don’t look natural, but they also visibly shift around in your mouth and so the
overall affect isn’t convincing. This can have a terrible impact upon your self-esteem and once your confidence in your
ability to socialize topples, almost every sphere of your life is sure to follow!
“We use dental implants, which act as anchors, to provide
unmovable support for a custom-built prosthetic dental
bridge,” explains one Wilmington cosmetic dentist. This
bridge essentially looks and feels like “a brand new set of
teeth and it is expertly fabricated to be virtually
indistinguishable from one. As such – and because the bridge
isn’t bulky like dentures are – it looks extremely natural. It
also cannot move around and so your audience literally won’t
be able to tell the difference between your new teeth and a
complete set of natural healthy teeth.”
What this means for your quality of life is something of truly
immeasurable importance. Having the healthy self-esteem
that comes with a confident smile contributes to success in all
spheres of life, from your social interactions with friends and
family, to your performance in the professional working
Dental Implant Benefits # 2: Dental implants help to preserve your youthful
Many Wilmington residents find dentures a relief after struggling for years with a failing and decayed dentition. And
while a new set of artificial teeth may seem like an improvement on what you had before, you’ve got to consider the
future as well as the present. And according to many Wilmington dental implant surgeons, dentures just don’t cater to
patients’ long-term needs.
“Dentures fail to maintain good jawbone health and over time, the underlying hard tissue atrophies. The changing
shape of the jawbone can require dentures to be refitted, so that they don’t slide around as much. However, over the
course of many years, this bone can almost completely waste away and the impact this has upon your natural youthful
facial contours is devastating. The facial structures begin to sag as their support disappears and you’ll start to develop
that sunken-in, aged appearance.
“Dental implants stimulate the jawbone and this keeps it healthy, bulky and strong. As a result, bone loss doesn’t
typically occur to the extent where it causes this terrible aging effect,” say Wilmington cosmetic dentists. “Teeth
implants can preserve your youthful appearance for much, much longer!”
