Many people who wear dentures are unhappy with the way they fit, or don’t fit. Loose, ill-fitting dentures cause many people to not wear them, instead tossing them in a drawer and dealing with going without them. Are you one of those people?
Here at Terrace Smiles, we can help you with that. Dental implant-supported dentures stay in place allowing you to eat, talk and smile without another thought. No worries about clacking, shifting or dentures falling out of your mouth. A dental implant supported denture snaps into place and stays there unless you want to take them out to clean.
What makes implant-supported dentures different from traditional dentures is that the secure fit provides patients with a higher level of comfort and confidence because they stay in place. So, there is no concern when speaking, eating and smiling.
Implant-supported dentures offer many benefits, especially when compared to traditional dentures. Implant-supported dentures:
- Are very stable – Implant posts surgically placed in the jaw attach to the denture so they will not slip or move out of place.
- No special cleaning necessary – Implant-supported dentures require the same treatment as your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing and routine visits to our office for oral exams and cleanings.
- Are incredibly natural looking – Implant-supported dentures are made of an acrylic base that looks like real gums. The teeth are made of natural looking porcelain or acrylic.
- Can help to prevent degradation of the jaw bone – When dental implants are embedded in the jaw, the body recognizes that these tissues are essential to a functioning mouth and the bone loss will halt.
