Dentures can be a lifesaver for people who suffer from tooth loss, but without ensuring a proper fit and stability, they can quickly turn into an inconvenience.
Dentures that are unstable, and move or shift in your mouth, can cause a slew of problems ranging from sore gums, impaired speech, an inability to eat certain foods, and a lack of confidence in your smile. When your dentures are uncomfortable to wear, your entire quality of life can suffer.
But dental implants provide a secure anchor for dentures that eliminates all of these troublesome denture issues.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed in your jaw to support a replacement tooth or full arch of teeth. Dental implants are used to support and make traditional dentures more secure. With dental implants, your dentures will not rest on or irritate soft tissue in your mouth, ensuring a more comfortable, pain-free denture wearing experience.
Dental implants bond with your bone during a process called osseointegration. Since your dental implant will become one with jaw bone, your dentures will become incredibly secure and will be sure to stay in place all day, comfortably.
Happily, this can be accomplished in as little as two implants, making the process quick and easy.
Perks of Dental Implants and Dentures
Dental implants offer several benefits for denture wearers, including increased security for your dental restoration, improved speech, a fuller, more youthful facial structure, an ability to eat all of your favorite foods, and a more permanent solution to tooth loss that can reasonably last the remainder of your life.
Our implant dentist, Dr. Mark Wright, has years of experience in restoring dental implants with dentures and can help patients achieve improvements in health and function with these prosthetics.
