Attention Denture Wearers!
Do you really like your dentures? Do you know that every day you wear any removable denture that your bone slowly “melts” away? That’s why your lips are “disappearing” getting thinner and thinner.
And, ladies haven’t you noticed that you have to overdraw your lipstick to look like you have lips? The lower jaw is getting closer to the upper one little by little the bone is “melting” away.
Not to worry! Chance are that with the use of implants we can restore complete function and esthetics and your lips! You will be able to speak, sing, and eat anything a person with natural teeth can.
Remember: “Dental implants have the highest success rate for any load-bearing implant in the realm of medicine.” With today’s materials and advanced techniques the 10 year success rate is over 90 percent.
“Dentistry is not expensive, neglect is.”
Mini implants are the latest innovation in the exploding field of implant dentistry. Loose-fitting, full and partial dentures can now be stabilized by locking into these “minis”.
In one painless visit, the existing denture can be secured and adapted to the implants. No more loose, painful and unattractive teeth. And all this for a reasonable fee.
The average denture-wearer has dentures for 18 years, and spends a combined $64 million per year on denture adhesives. They can’t eat what they would like to, and they can’t talk or laugh without the nagging worry that their dentures might pop out. Dentures are usually uncomfortable to wear, always cause progressive bone loss, and are a hassle to deal with.
With success rates for implants in the 90 percent range, payment options and one visit appointments, there is no longer any reason to suffer.
Regain confidence with eating, smiling and speaking properly.
