People who need to wear dentures almost always have problems keeping them securely in place.
Social activities can be stressful if you are concerned about a denture inhibiting your speech, laughter and eating.
One of the challenges of eating with dentures that move, sometimes fall and invariably trap food, would be to maintain a healthy diet.
Denture wearers are at a high risk of suffering poor nutrition.
Consequently, most people use an adhesive to secure their dentures but the results are seldom satisfactory.
There is another option. Dental implants, which are root replacement, are implanted into your jaw providing a stable and reliable base on which a denture can be anchored.
This can be done for either a full denture or a partial denture.
In studies, dental implants are shown to preserve bone and reduce gum tissue loss – all problems faced by patients who have had their teeth removed.
Historically, dental implants have a high clinical success rate ― patients who have opted for dental implants often remark how similar the implant feels to their own natural teeth.
Would implant-supported dentures make a difference in your life?
The improved stability during eating, less food seepage under the denture and social interactions accomplished with confidence are all benefits.
