Oh dear! Has it happened again? Failed denture? Broken bridge? Gosh, they just don’t seem to last very long do they? No, it’s not you. It’s just what happens with this kind of tooth restoration; after a few years of daily use, they wear out and have to be replaced.
But maybe this time, you could replace your failed bridge or broken denture with something more durable, more lifelike, more stable. Maybe this is the time to have a consultation for dental implants in Barnsley with us at PDC Dental Implants. You never know, having dental implants instead of a bridge or a denture could change your life. Let’s look at how:
Because dental implants are embedded into the jawbone, they give you as much chewing power as natural teeth. If you have been on a soft food diet because of wearing dentures, this could be a real game-changer. Imagine being able to tuck into a steak again, or biting into a fresh, crisp apple. Imagine also, being able to roar with laughter at your friends’ terrible jokes without worrying about whether your teeth will exit your mouth in an undignified explosion.
Once your dental implants in Barnsley are in place and have integrated with your jawbone, you will find that keeping your teeth clean is far less hassle. If you have crowns that are fixed permanently into your mouth, all you have to do is carefully brush and floss twice a day to remove plaque. You also have to have regular cleanings with the hygienist. If you have implants to stabilise your dentures, you can still take them out at night to store in denture solution and to give your gums a rest.
Although dental implants in Barnsley seem like a big investment, they last for at least 15 years, probably a lot longer. So, when doing the sums, please bear in mind that, over time, your implants could work out as the same price or even cheaper than yet another bridge or denture.
