If you are one of the many South Elgin denture wearers, you know that they are not the ideal solution for missing teeth.
The problems with dentures include slipping, gum irritation, trouble eating and talking, bone loss, and inability to taste food due to a covered palate. Clearly, 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 is making dentures a thing of the past.
At David Rice DDS we have information and expertise that can help bring hope to South Elgin denture wearers through implant dentistry. There are a variety of effective denture/implant tooth configurations.
Call David Rice DDS at 847-741-2353 to book an implant overdenture consultation with Dr. David Rice. We can help you understand your options and can recommend procedures.
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 and you will be able to eat hard foods again. How about a thick T-bone at your favorite South Elgin steakhouse? In addition to being able to enjoy your meal, you will avoid the embarrassment of having your dentures rattle around in your mouth in public.
Before you pay for another denture reline, ask your South Elgin dentist about the possibility of dental implants. While tooth implants are a significant investment, the dental implant cost is very reasonable when you consider they can last a lifetime.
Attention South Elgin denture wearers: there is life after dentures with tooth implants!
