If you wear dentures, have you ever thought of getting them stabilized with dental implants? Dental implants feature titanium posts, coated with a special substance that encourages them to fuse with the jawbone. After they are placed and enough time has passed to ensure a good bonding of bone and post, small connective pieces called abutments are added. The abutments then serve as the connecters between the posts and the dentures. Through this process, dentures can be attached to the jawbone, making them feel more like natural teeth. Here to discuss the benefits of implant-retained dentures is your Grand Prairie dentist, Dr. Quinn Smith.
Five Benefits of Implant-Retained Dentures
- You can do away with messy pastes – That’s right. Say goodbye to denture pastes. Because implant-secured dentures are connected to the jawbone, you will no longer require any type of paste.
- You won’t have to worry about slipping dentures – Slipping dentures can be very embarrassing. However, with the aid of implants, your dentures will no longer be at risk of slipping. The implants will hold them firmly in place while you speak and eat.
- No more sore gums – Because dentures do not rest on the gums but are supported by the jaw, your gums won’t feel the strain of your dentures. You may even forget that you’re wearing them at all.
- You can eat tough foods – Even steak is on the menu. The dental implants will hold your dentures as securely as if they were your natural teeth.
- You can speak better – Poorly fitting dentures can cause the facial muscles to tense in an attempt to keep dentures in place. With implant-retained dentures, you will be able to relax as you speak clearly and audibly.
