If you’ve made the decision to get implant-retained dentures with Philadelphia dentist Dr. Len Tau, then you’ve already taken a big step toward changing your life. Toothless grins may be cute on little children, but as adults they cause serious dental issues, such as shifting and rotating in your remaining teeth. Missing teeth also cause changes in your bite, reducing your ability to chew effectively, and preventing you from socializing with family and friends due to embarrassment. These fears diminish with the addition of dental implants to stabilize your dentures.

Dental implants improve your quality of life in a multitude of ways, however we want to discuss the top three: eating, smiling, and speaking.
One of the most basic joys in life is enjoying a delicious meal. Dentures shouldn’t limit you from feeling this joy. Dental implants stabilize your prosthetic teeth and provide extra support for biting and chewing. Your dentures won’t fall out when you bite into your dinner. In fact, implant dentures promote a more efficient bite and improve your ability to chew. Your false teeth will feel natural in your mouth, eliminating the need to stay away from your favorite foods.
Dr. Tau surgically imbeds the dental implants into your healthy jawbone, to provide a durable attachment site for your prosthetic teeth. With implant-retained dentures, you’ll regain the freedom to eat what you want, while abandoning the fear of embarrassingly losing your teeth during dinner. Foods that may have been off limits, such as corn on the cob and whole apples, will be back on the menu.
When you made the decision to get dentures, you knew that the appearance of your smile would be restored. But, what you may not have known is that your oral health will be restored also. Tooth loss causes undesirable changes in your mouth and leads to the spread of bacteria. Dental implants promote healthy bone structure by recreating a connection between your dentures and your jawbone. Unlike with traditional dentures, there’s no risk of facial collapse due to bone deterioration.
If a healthy mouth isn’t enough reason to smile, implant-retained dentures fit comfortably in your mouth. Dr. Tau will take impressions of the structures in your mouth and create a customized set of false teeth for you. Implant dentures don’t rub against gum tissue; therefore they cause little to no irritation in your mouth. Along with that, you’ll smile bigger knowing your toothy grin is natural looking and comfortable.
Lisps and whistling noises occur when you attempt to talk with missing teeth. Dental implants secure your false teeth in your mouth, which eliminates potential slipping. Of course, you’ll need time to get used to your dental implants and dentures, but once you do, you shouldn’t experience any trouble communicating with your friends and family.
Many patients adapt to their implant-retained dentures quicker than they do with traditional false teeth. This is because the teeth feel natural in their mouths, providing them with the feeling they had before losing any teeth.
Dr. Tau diligently works to ensure that your dental implants heal properly and fully before he attaches your dentures. After your procedure is complete, you will regain full function of your teeth, leading to the ability to speak with ease.
With many other benefits, dental implants are an excellent way to restore dental function and improve your quality of life. Schedule your appointment with Philadelphia dentist Dr. Tau today by calling 215-515-7941.
