Why Dentures Get Loose
There was a time when dentures were the best option for most people who needed to replace lost teeth. Thankfully, you can get something even better today.
The problems with traditional dentures are the same ones people have been dealing with for centuries. When you lose teeth that includes the roots of those teeth. As a result, you no longer have anything to stimulate your jawbone when you bite and chew. Without stimulation, your jaw will begin to lose bone tissue. Over time, this will change the shape of your jaw.
That affects how well — or how poorly — your dentures fit in your mouth. It’s also the reason people need to use more and more denture adhesive. But those benefits are only temporary.
How Implants Help
Implants are replacements for the roots of your teeth. Like roots, they are embedded directly in your jawbone. This allows them to anchor your dentures in place and to provide stimulation to your jaw.
With implant-supported dentures, you will be helping your jaw health with every bite and chew that you make. Since your dentures will be secure, you also can eat a wider variety of foods, which can make your meals more enjoyable and more nutritious. Both of those things can be beneficial to your quality of life.
With implants in place, you also won’t need adhesives for your dentures. That means you’ll be able to taste your food better as well without any adhesive aftertaste.
How to Get Implants
As we mentioned above, you’ll want to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. This will give us a chance to assess the condition of your jaw to determine if implants are right for you.
If you are a good candidate for this service, we work closely with specialists to ensure that your implants are placed correctly. This way you get the maximum benefit from your implants, which can last the rest of your life with proper care.
When you are ready, you will get your dentures to complete your smile and restore the power behind your bite. Studies have shown that people with implants can restore nearly all of their bite force. That’s quite a bit more than the 20 to 25 percent you could have with dentures alone.
