If You’re Having Problems With Slipping Dentures Then Why Not Have Them Secured With Dental Implants
Dentures have long been a quick and easy way of replacing missing teeth but as many denture wearers will tell you, over time they start to move about making it difficult to keep them in place, and often causing sore spots in the mouth. A solution can be a dental implant. In Richmond, and all over the UK, dentists with a high degree of experience in placing dental implants are using these to stabilise and hold dentures firmly in place. So let’s explain just how this works.
Once a tooth or teeth are missing the bone where the tooth root was starts to slowly degenerate causing the jawbone to change shape, which is why dentures that once fitted snugly begin to slip. Dental implants placed in the missing gap will over time fuse with the existing bone to create a firm platform which supports the implant and acts as a replacement tooth root. Consequently implants will prevent bone loss, retain the shape of the jaw, and can serve as an anchor for dentures.
Benefits of implant retained dentures:
Secure and stable fit of dentures to your gums
Less denture base to covering the roof of your mouth
Taste and speech is improved with less denture base
The bite compares well to your natural teeth
More varied diet since chewing function is improved
No more pressure points and sore mouth
Improved digestion and overall well-being
During an initial consultation, we’ll take a look at the condition of your jawbone, your gum tissue, your overall health and the best type of dentures for your needs. Options include removable dentures, fixed dentures, and mini implants for removable dentures. If you decide to go ahead with the procedure then we’ll tailor a treatment plan to fit your implants so that your dentures will begin to look like your natural teeth. Because the implants fuse with your jawbone, in no time at all they’ll start to look and feel more secure.
