Implant-Based Solutions = Improved Quality of Life

There is no need to be edentulous.  With conventional dentures, severe bone resoption occurs.  Because dentures are loose all the time, patients lose more than confidence, avoiding certain foods can lead to nutritional deficiencies, and an altered self-image causes an avoidance of social situations.  Dentures restore only 15% of chewing function.  Poorly fitting dentures can cause sore spots and painful blisters.  They often offer only limited lip and cheek support, and the face loses its natural appearance.

Dental implants provide the following functional benefits:
  • greater chewing capability
  • improved esthetics
  • improved speech
  • greater comfort
  • less bone resorption
And the following emotional benefits:
  • improved self-image
  • improved self confidence
  • greater self esteem
  • improved social life
