Wave Goodbye To Denture Adhesive
Dentures have been around for years and on paper they would seem to be a reasonable choice for anyone who has lost all of their teeth and is in need of a replacement, and who can’t afford a better alternative. Today’s dentures are lighter and more natural looking than ever before and are a quick method of replacing all of a person’s teeth with one appliance. However, the truth of the matter is that conventional dentures do have several shortcomings. Long-term they struggle to cope with the demands of daily life, and both their fit and function can diminish until they become more of an irritation than an asset.
Denture pastes and adhesive at best provide minimal relief for dentures that simply refuse to stay in place and consequently, more and more people are turning to dental implants. In Richmond, here at Sheen Dental we’re a clinic who have been placing dental implants for several years and we’ve noticed a considerable growth in their popularity. With dental implants you can finally wave goodbye to denture adhesive. Although an adjustment to your dentures may free you from using dental adhesive for a few weeks, with dental implants since they’re placed directly into the jaw bone they’re never need any form of adhesive and you’ll be able to put your trust in your new replacement teeth for many years to come.
For several years now it has been commonplace to use one dental implant as a replacement for one missing tooth and this still applies to tooth replacement. However, just a small number of implants can be a useful method of replacing all of a patient’s teeth, similar to a denture. In fact, it’s the modern day equivalent of dentures. Secured by as few as four dental implants, an arch of artificial teeth can be surgically attached to the jaw bone for complete tooth replacement that remains stable. Known as implant retained dentures, the arch snaps into place but can also be removed for easy cleaning.
An even more sophisticated procedure is the all-on-4 dental implant procedure which is considered a perfect combination of long-spanning dental bridges and implants which is immediate, and means that a patient can enter the dental clinic without any teeth and leave a few hours later with a full set of natural looking teeth which look and function just like the real thing. Offering complete coverage and stability, dental implant techniques are fast restoring smiles and making dental adhesive a thing of the past.
If you’re fed up having to glue your teeth in place each and every day, then a dental implant in Richmond could offer the perfect solution.
