Have you been struggling with ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures and are looking for a better solution? Dental implants can greatly improve the experience of wearing dentures, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence.
Instead of having dentures that sit against your gums, dental implants can support and attach to the dentures, keeping them securely in place. Dental implants consist of a “root” that is surgically implanted into your jawbone through your gums. The implant fuses with the bone in your jaw, creating a strong base for the dentures.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
Implants are convenient and eliminate the need for messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place. You’ll be able to eat, talk, and laugh without worrying that your dentures will slip out of place. Without dentures sitting directly against the gums, many patients report less gum irritation and a more natural feel.
Because dentures fit better with dental implant support, they allow you to follow a normal diet and chew more efficiently without concern. Implant-supported dentures also require less plastic; as a result, food typically tastes better.
Lost teeth can result in bone loss at the former site of the root; fortunately, dental implants prevent bone loss by integrating with the jaw and creating a natural replacement. Traditional dentures do not prevent bone resorption and can actually worsen gum recession. Bone loss in the jaw can also leave your face with a sunken-in look; by preventing bone loss with dental implants, you can retain your natural facial structure and contours.
