Implant dentures are the perfect tooth replacement solution. Patients are no longer limited to traditional dentures. While traditional dentures have their fair share of benefits, they are not consistently a reliable, functional or visually impressive as implant dentures. If you leave your gums bare after losing one or several teeth, then the remaining teeth can drift toward that open area, making it difficult to eat and speak. Implants dentures will return your mouth and your life to normal.
Dental implants have emerged as quite the popular alternative to traditional dentures. Implant dentures bring the best of both oral health solutions together. Dental implants last longer than other artificial teeth. They are undoubtedly superior to bare gums or regular dentures. This approach to rectifying missing teeth re-establishes the lost support for the lip, reducing the number of wrinkles around the mouth.
It preserves the bone and keeps the facial structure fully intact. A person with dental implants will be able to chew with ease thanks to the stability. The entire mouth will function exactly as the patient desires. In fact, the patient will be able to taste food the way it should taste, notice the difference between hot/cold and eat whatever he or she desires at any point in time. Dental implants connect the permanent bridge to the jaw.
Implant-retained bridges are vastly superior to removable dentures. The biting force improves by upwards of 70 percent with implant dentures. Dental implants are a beneficial substitute for the tooth's natural root system, providing extra strength and boosting the bite force. Another benefit is that we can help to make sure the implant-retained bridges match the shade of the surrounding teeth. This way, patients will not have two teeth that seem whiter than the rest.
For the placement of implant dentures, we will place titanium screws into the jaw. The titanium will slowly fuse with the bone in a process known as osseointegration. It takes a couple months for the bone and implant to fuse.
These screws are the anchors for the fake teeth. We will make the full dentures in a lab and then attach them to the implants' tiny metal posts known as abutments. Patients will not feel any pain during this process.
Plenty of people have tried regular dentures but end up not wearing them as they do not fit as they should or because they slip around once in the mouth. If you are in such a position or know someone who is, it is time to consider the merits of an overdenture dental implant. It might take as few as a couple dental implants to stabilize your dentures.
Implant-supported overdentures are structured to provide complete implant-supported functionality. They will not bust your budget yet they will prevent all of those health issues that would otherwise occur if you left gaps in your mouth. This is the best way to preserve bone, keep your facial structure in place and enjoy a high quality of life once again. You will find your implant dentures prove comfortable, stable and aesthetically pleasing across the long haul.
