An Excellent Solution for Loose Dentures
Do you have loose dentures? Are you thinking about tooth replacement options or implant dentures? There are multitudes of ways to replace missing teeth or teeth that need to be removed. The most advanced procedure today for replacing missing teeth is the placement of dental implants or implant dentures. While there are plenty of other methods that can replace missing teeth, an implant-retained denture is an excellent permanent option for teeth replacement.
An implant-retained denture is secured by a few dental implants positioned perfectly in your jawbone to give you just the amount of support your denture needs to stay in place.
What are the advantages of implant-retained or implant dentures?
Denture Stability – An implant-retained denture gives you the ability to replace your missing teeth and have the confidence to smile without worrying about your denture falling out. The implants stabilize the denture allowing you to chew, talk, and smile comfortably.
Prevent Changing Face Shape – An implant-retained denture using four implants per dental arch (four on the upper and four on the lower) will keep your jawbone intact. This can help prevent your face from having a sunken appearance that one can get with conventional dentures over time. Traditional dentures do not preserve the bone structure as there is nothing in the jawbone to retain the bone structure. On the other hand, research has shown deterioration in the facial structure in some patients because of too many implants – usually 8-10 – actually alter the root system in the jawbone. The implant-retained denture procedure can provide a steady balance and help preserve your facial structure to maintain a full, beautiful, and healthy smile.
Don’t worry about Your Teeth Falling Out – The implant-retained denture procedure gives you the confidence to chew without worry. Once secured with four implants, the denture is held in place permanently. You can bite into all your favorite foods without having to worry about your teeth shifting or, even worse, coming out!
Teeth for Life – Because these implants are made of high-grade titanium material and are integrated into your bone, they can give you a lifetime of stability. Taking proper care of your denture is imperative for them lasting, a lifetime. With proper home care, your implant-retained or implant dentures can be the perfect teeth replacement option. This is beneficial not only for your health and comfort but also for your wallet!
Costs are Less than Other Dental Implant Procedures – Soon after your treatment, you’ll be able to eat your favorite foods, laugh more, and of course, smile more. Never again will you worry about denture adhesive! Instead, you will enjoy your beautiful new smile for the rest of your life!
Commonly Asked Questions about Implant Retained Dentures
“Great types of dentures?”
An excellent treatment option for replacing teeth are often implant-retained dentures. Implants allow stability, slow down, or even stop bone loss, increase confidence, and fix problems loose dentures cause.
“What makes an excellent denture alternative?”
An excellent denture alternative is a permanent Hybrid Prosthesis. Multiple implants are used to support “bridge-over-the-implants.” A final product is a natural-looking, beautiful smile that stays in your mouth permanently.
“Do dental implants hurt?”
It is possible to have the procedure done under local anesthetic, or you can request additional sedation. Once the anesthesia has worn off, any discomfort should be minimal. If necessary, your oral surgeon can prescribe medication, but over-the-counter medication is generally enough.
“Loose-fitting denture solution?”
Research shows that missing teeth cause the jaw bone to shrink and change shape over time. Dentures should be checked every year and should be replaced when they lose their fit and become loose. This often takes place after 5-10 years of use. By using dental adhesive, you may have only masked the loose fit of your dentures. An excellent option for loose dentures may be implant retained dentures. Implants slow down or even stop further bone loss and allow stability and denture retention.
