Ask Us About Denture-Stabilization Implants

Brookhaven tooth implants

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.

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.
