Clear Lake Dental Care explains the differences between dental implants and dentures
When a dentist teaches other dentists cutting-edge proprietary techniques, most would agree that is the dentist that should be seen. This is precisely what citizens of the Clear Lake area can have by going to Clear Lake Dental Care.
Clear Lake’s Dr. Das, D.D.S. is a member of the prestigious International Congress of Oral Implantology, The American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and the Academy of Osseointegration, the worlds’ foremost clinical implant training and continuing education organizations. He has the experience and knowledge that draws dentists from all over to find out how to help their patients better.
Dr. Das is one of the few dentists in the state that performs both the surgical placement and reconstructive phases of implants, which means the actual placing of the teeth. This allows for a patient to see only one doctor and visit one location. Many times at other dental centers, to complete this procedure, a patient must travel to different locations and see two or more doctors.
Having done the procedure for more than a decade, Dr. Das’ commitment to "doing it right" and the ability to "handle just about anything" has won him the admiration of patients and other doctors.
“Dental implants restore lost chewing ability, improve appearance, end embarrassment, and give real self-confidence to patients who need them,” said Dr. Das, D.D.S. of Clear Lake Dental Care. “Dental implants are the most stable and economically far-sighted solution to the very real problem of missing teeth. This procedure is one which I have done repeatedly for satisfied patients over many years. My friendly staff also has in-depth training and great experience in this area and will be happy to answer any questions that may occur to you.”
Today dental implants are the professions' preferred method of replacing missing teeth. Because of proven success, preservation of existing teeth, and no susceptibility to cavities, dental implants are the answer to missing teeth.
“If you have been told you aren't a candidate because of a lack of supporting bone, you should come in and see us,” said Dr. Das. “We can almost always figure out ways to solve that problem so you can have implant restorations with today's techniques.”
Clear Lake Dental Care has pushed implants more than dentures lately because for normal chewing, natural teeth exert an average pressure of 45 pounds per square inch of force, ranging up to 75 pounds while dentures see reduced chewing pressure to around 14 pounds per square inch and sometimes that can be reduced to a mere five pounds per square inch. This is a five to 15-fold decrease in chewing effectiveness, causing a drastic change in eating habits and elimination of some favorite foods from the diet.
Often times, denture wearers complain that the taste, temperature, texture and enjoyment of food are decreased. They may add additional salt and spices to food to give it more taste. The plastic of the dentures insulates the tissue that is responsible for giving people the sense of their food. Adding extra seasoning to a food, particularly salt, can lead to further health problems. According to Dr. Misch, world-renowned implant dentist, the average denture wearer has a life span of 10-years less than a person with natural teeth or implants.
Therefore biting force, tastes and the health of patients are all increased for patients that choose implants over dentures.
