It\’s your birthday party, and all of your friends and family members are there. Everyone is sitting outside, enjoying cake and refreshments. Then, someone says that the photographer has arrived — it\’s picture-taking time. It’s the moment you’ve been dreading all afternoon. While you’re grateful for the party and to spend time with loved ones, there’s nothing you dislike more than having to open your mouth and smile for the camera, particularly in a big group.

You have missing teeth, and feel embarrassed when you expose those gaps to the public. You hardly even smile at your reflection in the mirror because doing so brings up painful feelings. You don\’t like to tell others because it seems somewhat silly — it\’s just a couple of missing teeth. Perhaps you feel vain for caring so much. But you shouldn’t feel that way. Your physical appearance can weigh heavily on your self-esteem. You deserve to feel good and confident at all times. Fortunately, missing teeth are easily replaceable.

Have you ever considered getting dental implants or dentures? We\’re Koster Denture Clinic, and we\’re a Winnipeg denture specialist providing patients with the care and support they need to feel their very best. If you’re thinking about making a change and boost your self-esteem, then denture services might be what you\’re looking for. Read on to discover the advantages of dental implants and how they compare with full and partial dentures.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a frame or post made of titanium metal. It\’s surgically positioned into the jawbone to replace the root of your natural tooth. An artificial tooth replacement is then attached to the implant, which acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth sturdy in place.

They Look and Feel Natural

If you’re looking for dental implants that look and feel like your natural teeth, Koster Denture Clinic is the place for you. We’re considered the number one dental facility that offers the most professional denture implants in Winnipeg and the surrounding area. Dental implants fuse directly with your bone and become permanent fixtures in your mouth, enhancing your appearance. You\’ll never have to worry about them moving around in your mouth and accidentally slurring your words or watching as your teeth slip out of your mouth in the middle of a conversation. They become a part of you.  

They Provide Security

Implants meld into your jawbone and provide support for your new artificial teeth. The bridges and dentures that mount to the implants won\’t shift or slide in your mouth — which is particularly beneficial when eating or talking. It\’s a secure fit that will help your dentures placed over the implants feel significantly more natural than conventional bridges. Some people prefer dental implants to dentures or bridges because of the secure comfort they provide.

For example, typical bridges must attach to teeth on either side of the missing tooth\’s space. However, with an implant, no adjacent teeth require preparation or grinding down to hold your new teeth in place. It\’s one less thing to worry about.

What’s Required From You

You must have healthy gums to accommodate dental implants, and you must commit to maintaining such structures to be strong and healthy. You must also exercise meticulous oral hygiene and visit your dentist and denturist regularly. It’s critical to keep a healthy mouth so your dental implants will experience long-term success.

What About Dentures?

Dental implants are excellent teeth replacements, but you also have the option to choose dentures as an alternative. Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. At Koster, we offer several different types of dentures to suit our customers’ needs. Further to dental implants, some of our other most popular teeth replacement services include:

·         Standard Complete Dentures

·         Standard Dentures with High-Quality Teeth

·         Partial Dentures

·         Immediate Dentures

·         And More

Standard dentures are made with basic teeth shades and shapes to match your existing teeth. Our standard teeth with high-quality options come with more teeth shade and shape variety. Not everyone has the same tooth colour, so we like to offer as many options as possible to make our clients happy and comfortable.

The Benefits of Wearing Dentures

Similar to dental implants, wearing dentures can increase your self-esteem tremendously. The right set can improve the way you look because they’ll replace any missing teeth — giving you a beautiful smile from ear to ear. They’ll also support your face muscles, relieving any stress and tension and giving you a confident, healthy appearance. They can even prevent or reduce further oral health issues from occurring in the mouth. Restoring your natural teeth’s functioning with dentures helps reduce the onset of things such as gum disease.

You’ll also benefit from:

·         Improved Speech

·         Better Chewing and Digestion

·         Customized Dentures for Your Mouth

·         Easy Cleaning and Maintenance

The best part about dentures is that they come in complete or partial sets. For example, do you only have a few missing teeth that don’t require replacing all of your teeth? Consider partial dentures instead of full.

Complete and Partial Dentures

Whether you decide on complete or partial dentures, your confidence will soar, and you\’ll finally find the solace you\’ve been searching for so long. Full dentures are removable and replace all of the missing teeth on the top and bottom of your mouth.

If there are only few missing teeth to replace, then partials are the dentures for you. The advantages of partial dentures are that you can remove them whenever you want, and they\’ll fit comfortably inside your mouth without slipping and sliding.

We make sure your dentures match the shade and shape of your other teeth so that you’ll feel confidently attractive when out in public.

You don’t have to shy away from the camera any longer. With a new set of dental implants or dentures, you\’ll be smiling from ear to ear on your next birthday. Just remember to review the pros and cons of each before you decide on which one to get. Whichever you choose, you’re about to change your life for the better.
