You can tell that he’s nervous, but it’s not for the reason you may be thinking.
You can’t know this from looking at the older gentleman seated a few tables away, but he is worried that he won’t be able to find anything that he can eat.
It’s not because of dietary restrictions or allergies. He has traditional dentures, and there are just a lot of foods that are too difficult for him to bite and chew. He doesn’t want to settle for soup and mashed potatoes, which he has had to do at other restaurants.
This situation could be different. He could feel confident about ordering anything on the menu if he had dental implants to keep his dentures secure. He could get them at Wayne Dental Care … and so can you or someone you love.

Feel Like Yourself Again
Far too many people take their teeth for granted. We know because they talk to us about it after they’ve lost their teeth. It’s like that old saying, you don’t really miss what you have until it’s gone.
You probably don’t spend a lot of time thinking about all the things your teeth do for you on a daily basis. Their primary job is helping you bite into and chew up the food that you eat. If you are missing teeth, this can be much more difficult.
Your teeth also affect how you speak. When you have missing teeth, this changes how you pronounce words. Even if you have dentures, your speech can be affected by your dentures moving around when you are trying to talk.
Your teeth are the “stars” of the show when it’s time to smile, too. If you are missing teeth, you can feel self-conscious about letting other people see you smile. That can have a big impact on how you are perceived by others.
By getting implant-supported dentures or an implant-supported bridge, you can restore your ability to bite and chew naturally. You can speak as well as you ever have, and you can feel confident in flashing your smile in personal, professional, and social situations.
Dentures have been used for a long time by people who were missing teeth, but they are limited in what they can do. Multiple studies have confirmed that people with dentures cannot bite or chew with the same force as someone with a full set of teeth. Likewise, people with dentures often have to use denture adhesives to keep their “teeth” somewhat in the same position.
By getting dental implants, you are replacing the roots of your lost teeth. This anchors your dentures in place, and it can restore practically all of your biting power. This is why you can feel comfortable eating anything you want.
Get What You Really Want
If you need to replace missing teeth now or in the future, get what you really want. Get replacement teeth that look, feel, and function practically as well as the real thing.
