I have fought the reality of having dentures for years. The uncomfortable fit, awkward ability to eat most food items, and how the denture would react in different situations were my main concerns. The implant-supported denture and partial have been a godsend. I never have to worry about what I eat, how the teeth are going to react to different situations. It is the closest I can imagine to real teeth--easy to keep clean and always secure. With the palate-free partial, I don't feel like I have a mouthful of stuff supporting the teeth and food seems to have a better taste.
