The condition of your teeth has a significant impact on your health and well-being. Denture wearers understand this all too well. A common issue with conventional dentures is bone recession. It can be avoided with implant-supported dentures.
The Drawbacks of Dentures
While dentures are preferable to having no teeth at all, they certainly come with drawbacks. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating, tasting food, talking, and laughing difficult. And dentures are not a once-and-your-done solution for missing teeth. As the jaw shrinks, they call for relines.
Stop The Progression
But there is hope! Dental implant technology can improve the quality of life for people who have been wearing standard dentures. To a certain extent, implants curb the downhill progression of declining oral health due to tooth loss.
Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow us to securely attach an appliance so that it won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts are placed into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a strong base for an overdenture.
Restore Chewing Ability
Did you know that some denture wearers retain only ten percent of their chewing capacity? Implant-supported dentures not only curb bone recession, they can restore near-normal chewing ability. Improved chewing function with implants can result in better nutrition and overall physical well-being.
The psychological benefits are equally valuable. When Wilson Dental Group patients are free of embarrassing denture-slipping, they are happier, more sure of themselves, and socialize more often.
