Benefits of using dental implants for denture stabilization
When tooth loss occurs, it can cause dramatic changes in a patient’s life and their self-confidence. Many turn to dentures to address the situation quickly and easily. It is an affordable solution for most, and can be an effective way to replace an entire arch of teeth. However, some patients never quite adjust to the feel of dentures. Others have difficulty keeping their dentures in place, and may experience sores and gum irritation due to ill-fitting dentures. Some struggle with the use of dental adhesives that don’t seem to work for keeping the dentures in place. These are regular concerns of denture wearers, and for good reason. While they may be an affordable solution, they are not always the most effective. However, patients who are struggling with dentures may be interested in knowing that they can improve their situation with denture implants in The Woodlands.
Dental implants are actually posts of titanium that are surgically implanted into the bone of the jaw. This is to replace a natural tooth root. Dental implants are usually topped with a dental crown to replace a single missing tooth, but they can also be used to stabilize dentures.
Dentures can be made to fit over dental implants and snap into place. This restores maximum chewing efficiency. It allows patients to break free from using denture adhesives every day, and can keep dentures from causing sores and discomfort. Patients can also feel free to talk, laugh, and speak without worrying about their dentures sliding out of place or becoming loose. This can bring patients the self-confidence they need to eat what they enjoy and fully take control of their dental health and beauty.
Dr. Dernick has many patients who enjoy the benefits of dental implants in conjunction with full dentures. While replacing each tooth in the mouth with a dental implant is not always a viable solution, implant-support dentures can be. It is a more affordable way to maintain the chewing and biting efficiency the patient once had with their natural teeth.
