6 Reasons To Ditch Your Dentures For Dental Implants

Implant dentures Wilson

For thousands of years, dentures have allowed people who have lost their teeth to chew food and flash some teeth when they smile. But dentures can be unstable, irritating, embarrassing, and inconvenient. At Wilson Dental Group, dental implants are proving to be a superior solution to replacing lost teeth.

A dental implant provides the total package, so to speak. An implant replaces the visible part of the tooth and—this is key—also the root.

For a single dental implant, super-strong titanium post is anchored directly into the jawbone. An abutment is then attached to the post. Finally, a crown or denture is attached to the abutment.

But dental implants can be inserted into several places in the jaw in order to support a full set of dentures. Implant-supported dentures provide the following benefits:

  • Stability – Implants don’t move around in your mouth.  This permits normal chewing, swallowing, and speech.
  • Bone Retention – The post maintains bone health and circulation
  • Dental implants prevent jaw muscle dysfunction that can occur when remaining teeth are forced to compensate for missing teeth
  • Dental implants prevent gum irritation
  • No need for denture relines
  • No denture adhesive needed

Dental implants are available from Wilson Dental Group to replace a single lost tooth, or to support dentures. Schedule a consultation with us to find out more. We also offer general and cosmetic dentistry.

Live Better With Dental Implants

Wilson Implant Dentistry Ill-fitting dentures can result in more troubles for denture wearers than they solve. Implant-supported dentures may be just what you’ve been looking for.

If you live with loose dentures, you probably regard them as a necessary evil. Though they certainly look more attractive than a toothless mouth, in practical terms they leave much to be desired because they impact two vital activities: eating and talking.

Missing Out on Life?

Unfortunately, many disheartened denture wearers have quit dining in restaurants or engaging in social activities because they are afraid their dentures will come loose.

Implant dental procedures are permitting denture wearers to re-engage in life. Consider the merits of implant-supported dentures:

  • They are stable because the implant is anchored in the bone.
  • Your denture is fixed, it will not move around in your mouth.
  • They prevent bone loss that can occur when teeth are removed.
  • They eliminate the necessity of regular denture relines.
  • They do not irritate gums.
  • No denture adhesive is necessary.

Patients who have replaced their conventional dentures with implant overdentures enthusiastically say that the dental implant cost was more than worth it.
