If you have lost one or more of your natural teeth, whether due to trauma, disease, or poor oral health, dental implants represent the closest thing to replacing them. In fact, no dental restoration comes even remotely close to dental implants in terms of their ability to recreate a missing tooth from root to crown.
Say Goodbye To Removable Dentures
Dental implants are a particular blessing to denture wearers. As anyone who has ever worn conventional removable dentures can attest, dentures are not an especially good substitute for natural teeth.Implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, are the next best thing to having a mouth full of strong, healthy natural teeth. Patients emerge with the freedom to eat whatever they pleaseand they can speak and smile with confidence once again.
What Are The Benefits Of Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant supported dentures offer a multitude of benefits, particularly in comparison to their removable counterparts.
While removable dentures tend to slip and shift out of place, implant-supported dentures are fixed in the mouth to tiny titanium posts that are rooted in the jaw. These titanium implant posts are surgically embedded in the jaw bone, where they fuse with the bone over time, essentially becoming part of the patient’s natural anatomy. As a result, dental implants provide stability and security that no adhesive or clasp could possibly provide.
Speak And Eat With Ease
Once implant-supported dentures are in place, patients are able to bite, chew, and speak with renewed ease once again. You can eat the foods you enjoy and speak without obscuring your speech.
Unlike dentures, which rest on the gums, implant-supported dentures are attached below the gum line, which gives them a more natural appearance. In fact, your implant-supported dentures will be virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Stop Loss Of Gum Tissues And Bone
When you lose your teeth, the hard and soft tissues that once supported them begin to degrade from disuse. Conventional dentures do not stop this process. Dental implants, however, are interpreted by the brain as being the same as natural tooth roots. As a result, the body stops the resorption process as the jawbone and gums are once again interpreted as having vital purposes to serve.
