Solve Denture Drawbacks with Dental Implants
Dentures have come a long way in terms of appearance and comfort. While some patients find contentment in their traditional dentures, there are many others that struggle with ill-fitting and unstable dentures. Since your teeth play important roles in your health, well-being and quality of life, you should be able to rely on them in everyday life. If your traditional dentures are a source of frustration or disruption, there is a more “secure” solution.
What Are Implant Dentures?
Implant dentures, implant-retained dentures and overdentures are all names that describe a full denture that is secured in place with dental implants. This is different than traditional dentures that rest along your gum line and rely on adhesive cream to stay in place. Instead, a set of implants (titanium posts) are surgically placed into the jaw bone to form a strong, artificial tooth root for your attached denture on top. Implants rely on a special healing process that includes osseointegration, which means the biocompatible implant fuses to the surrounding bone over the course of a few months. By mimicking the function and form of a natural tooth root, the dental implant can offer unrivaled advantages for your denture stability and your personal comfort.
Do You Suffer From These Denture Woes?
Due to the fact that traditional dentures aren’t anchored into your jawbone like implant dentures, they can bring some drawbacks. Here are some common issues that patients face with traditional dentures:
- Uncomfortable fit
- Frequent relines/adjustments
- Gum, tissue irritations
- Loose dentures
- Dentures that easily fall out
The above disruptions can undoubtedly affect your quality of life and even your overall health. Implant dentures solve these dentures woes and more!
The superior stability and design of implant-supported dentures offer the following:
- Confidence when eating, speaking and laughing.
- Easy to maintain – no adhesive creams or repeated denture reline appointments.
- Dietary freedom that can include fibrous vegetables and other hard-to-chew foods.
- Prevention of bone loss in the jaw and a hallowed lower face.
- Long-term solution, implants can last a lifetime!
