While conventional dentures remain a viable option for tooth replacement among patients who are missing most or all of their teeth, they certainly are not problem-free. With removable dentures, only about 10 percent of a person’s natural ability to bite and chew is restored. In addition, normal speech might be more difficult, and these dentures often cause painful gum sores and blisters. Finally, because a full denture wearer does not have any teeth or teeth roots to stimulate a healthy jawbone, facial sagging often makes a person look aged.

For many Independence, KY residents, a bright, flawless smile seems out of reach. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be. Studies show that people who like their teeth smile more often, and that those who smile more often feel happier. It stands to reason that investing in your smile is an investment in a happier future. If the pursuit of happiness isn’t enough to make you consider smile correction, what about a better job, or at least a better paying job? A recent US unemployment study revealed that of those job seekers, people with straight, white teeth were more than twice as likely to receive job offers, and of the people who received job offers, those with smile irregularities, applicants with better teeth made more money. At Independence Family Dentistry, we believe that every patients deserves to be treated like a celebrity, and have a smile worthy of the big screen. If your smile has room for improvement, call Dr. Danny Nakhla and his Independence, KY team to schedule a smile consultation today.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, it’s very likely that you don’t look or feel your best. Missing one or more teeth can make it difficult to chew thoroughly and speak clearly, potentially impacting the quality of your social life. Over time, the shape of your face may begin to change as well, as gum tissue recedes and provides less support to your facial structure. Empty sockets left by missing teeth also allow the surrounding teeth to move, causing teeth to become crooked or irregularly spaced. But guess what- it doesn’t have to be this way. Call Dr. Danny Nakhla at Independence Family Dentistry to schedule a tooth replacement consultation today. (more…)
