The olden days of dentures are truly gone – now we’re able to get rid of those old unreliable things and swap them with dental implants! If you’ve been thinking about ways to replace a bridge or dentures you may have considered implants – but what are they really like?

At Panama City Smiles we’ve placed a lot of implants for a lot of patients. In the course of restoring their smiles we’ve heard some wonderful stories about how implants have changed our patients lives. Today we want to share some of those with you. Who knows – you might read a story just like yours!

Implants In Their Own Words

I had a set of complete dentures replaced with a permanent fixed bridge on top and bottom. I was finally able to eat my favorite foods again! My health has improved and so has my life – I don’t need to think about my teeth at all anymore!

Dentures and missing teeth take a toll on your health simply because you lose the desire to eat and be healthy. Many denture patients end up shortening their life expectancies because of such poor eating habits, and dental implants have seen those problems almost completely eliminated!

I slipped while boating as a teenager, taking out three teeth in the front of my mouth. I had a bridge at the time, but it was starting to wear out. I decided to get an implant bridge along the front because I’d heard they last long and look more realistic. I wasn’t disappointed!

Injuries and replacements for multiple lost teeth are a great reason to get dental implants. We can repair the loss of one tooth, a couple, or a whole mouthful! Our state-of-the-art restorations allow you to see relief that’s completely lifelike, beautifully detailed, and perfectly matched to your existing teeth.

I lost a lot of teeth to gum disease, and I was at a point where I had to make a decision between dentures and implants. I had a friend who had dentures and she hated them – I didn’t want that to happen to me. It was an investment, but I got dental implants at Panama City Smiles. I couldn’t be happier.

Losing teeth can be a traumatic experience. If you’re forced to choose between dentures and implants you might find yourself considering the cheaper solution of dentures, but trust us: you won’t find lasting happiness with them. Over time you’ll end up with dentures that slip, fall, and slide around, leaving you in uncomfortable and embarrassing situations. Implants, on the other hand, will allow you to pick up in life directly where you left off – with a great smile!

When I found out I had a dental abscess I was scared I wasn’t going to be able to handle the pain of a root canal and oral surgery. I did fine, but then I was without a tooth – it had to be extracted because of the infection. I decided to get an implant instead of a bridge. I had heard they looked more real and lasted longer. I’m thrilled with the way it turned out. It looks and feels just like a real tooth!

Even the loss of a single tooth can be devastating. Thankfully dental implants are great at fixing those too! A single implant with a single crown sets you up for years of healthy teeth and prevents bone loss that can still be caused by a bridge.
