A little bit of dentistry wisom for you to enjoy!

Do teeth influence speech? – They may forget what you said, but they won’t forget how you said it.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SPEECH

One of the many problems that people with dentures face is that they are unable to speak as well with a denture covering the roof of their mouth. Fluidity in the ability to speak quickly and clearly is affected significantly. This can become a nuisance or even a big problem for some denture wearers.

THE SOLUTION IS A TOOTH REPLACEMENT THAT DOESN’T COVER THE ROOF OF YOUR MOUTH – DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants and sometimes bridges are able to replace a denture without the need to cover the roof of your mouth. This enables the tongue to manoeuvre freely to allow the patient to speak normally.

I have found certain patients find this to be more of an issue such as public speakers and musicians, any effect to their speech can be a big problem for them. For this reason, a fixed tooth replacement is the ideal solution.

The ability to speak confidently and naturally has been shown to significantly influence the impression people make of you…

NATURAL AESTHETICS MEAN NATURAL RESULTS

One of the main features that sets dental implants apart from dentures is the aesthetics. Dental implants can blend in to your existing smile appearance without detriment to your aesthetic appearance.  The example below shows how we replaced the missing teeth on this patient to restore her smile aesthetically.

 

Simply making teeth look better is not enough if they don’t allow you to function fully. The advantage of dental implants is that when done properly they are able to restore your smile both in appearance and in function. For this reason, in most cases, I would recommend dental implants as the preferred option to replace missing teeth.
