THE SECRET TO BETTER FITTING DENTURES
There are many ways to make a denture fit better. Some people may suggest a reline. Others may say a new denture altogether. Although these are ways you can get your denture to fit better, it's not always a guarantee because there still isn't a solid foundation for your denture to sit on.
Today, I would like to share with you a method that will guarantee your denture will be secure and stay where it should be.
This is done by using dental implants to secure your denture into place.
Dental implants are titanium roots that provide a solid foundation for your dentures. This isn't a new technique. It's actually been around for over 40 years and thousands of people have benefitted from securing their denture using implants. Not only do they keep your denture in place, they also have many other important health benefits.
The first health benefit: dental implants stop your jaw bone from shrinking. Without natural teeth to stimulate your jaw bone, it actually begins to deteriorate and shrink. As the saying goes, 'if you don't use it, you'll lose it!' After 10, 20, or 30 years without teeth, your jaw bone shrinks. As a result, changing your facial structure and often making you look older than you actually are. The good news is that dental implants stop the process of bone resorption (shrinking). They provide the stimulations that your jaw bone needs so it doesn't shrink. As a result, you maintain a youthful smile even after 30-40 years!
The second health benefit: dental implants bear the stress of the denture and stop it from irritating your gums. When constant rubbing occurs on the gums, sores develop, which are very uncomfortable. Dental implants stop the sore spots from developing because it keeps the denture in place.
Having dental implants placed is less painful than having a tooth pulled because there are no nerves being removed in the process. It's much like putting a tooth back in.
Also, there are two options for replacing all of your teeth with implants. You can find out which one is best for you by scheduling a free consultation at our office.
