I’m Having a Hard Time Chewing

Don’t let loose or missing teeth or poorly fitting dentures keep you from enjoying the foods you love. Visit Panama City Smiles in Panama City, FL and let Dr. Anish Patel restore your strong bite with dental implants!

I Have Loose Or Missing Teeth

The best way to replace teeth is the permanent solution of dental implants. With dental implants, we can restore your teeth from root to crown, anchoring them solidly into your jawbone. This will restore the strength and stability you need to chew properly.

If dental implants are not a good fit for you, we have other tooth replacement options we can explore. For instance, we can use a dental bridge to fill the gap left by a few missing teeth or just one tooth. Dental bridges can be fixed in place using implants or your natural teeth, or they can be removable.

Each case is different, so we will perform a thorough exam and evaluation and help you find the best solution.

My Dentures Won’t Cooperate

After your teeth are extracted, your gum tissue and jaw will shrink and change shape. This can affect the way your dentures fit in your mouth, causing them to shift, slide, or even come out when you chew and speak.

If you are missing all of your teeth, you may want to consider a permanent answer: implant-secured dentures. Using mini implants or four to six implants in your upper or lower arch, we can craft dentures that stay put.

Implant-mounted dentures can be either permanent (fixed) or removable. Both options offer:

  • A secure fit
  • Better chewing
  • A much-improved ability to taste your food

And, you will no longer need any unpleasant denture adhesives!

We have many options to improve your ability to chew, speak, and smile without hesitation. Call Dr. Patel at Panama City Smiles today at (850) 763-8788 or use our online form to make an appointment.
