Dentures offer a convenient solution to restore your smile after you have suffered significant tooth loss. These prosthetics have improved over the years thereby enhancing their fit as well as function. Traditional dentures have the drawback of slipping out of place and can be pretty inconveniencing. Luckily, implant-retained dentures tend to solve that problem and make a really big difference. Here are the amazing benefits of receiving implant-supported dentures.
Eliminates Slipping and Irritation
The traditional full dentures rest on the gums and are held in place by an adhesive or suction. Sadly, you always experience slipping and irritation. To help eliminate discomforts and the slippage, and ensure the dentures are stable, our prosthodontist utilizes dental implants, about 4 to 8 implants to hold the dentures in place. As a result, you can speak, chew, and smile without bothering about slipping and irritation.
Losing teeth causes the jawbone to start eroding or deteriorating since there is no stimulation by the root. Receiving implant dentures helps stimulate the growth and development of new bone to help ensure a healthy, strong jaw. The implants serve as the roots of the teeth.
Provide a Lasting Solution
If you wear traditional dentures, you will need replacement after 5 to 7 years. However, implant dentures can last decades if you ensure proper care. They provide a cost effective solution because you will not be paying for new ones. Make sure you keep your oral hygiene at top level and visit our dental team regularly for checkups.
Improves Biting Force
Implant dentures have the support of the jawbone, giving you a better biting force, a replica of the real teeth. You are happy that you can chew your favorite food. These dentures help you regain about 70 percent of your natural teeth biting force. Now that you understand the benefits of implant-retained dentures, why not schedule an appointment with our prosthodontist for evaluation and assessment.
