If you have lost any of your teeth, wearing dentures is a highly effective means of restoring your smile. However, the functioning of your dentures is immensely improved by dental implants. By securing your dentures with dental implants, you’ll experience a smile that looks and feels more realistic.
· Additional Support
If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants are ideal tooth loss solutions. Similarly, dentures restore smiles for patients who are missing the majority of their teeth. Combining both of these restorative dentistry techniques creates the most secure and effective treatment for your smile restoration. Implant-supported dentures are secured in your mouth by dental implants, rather than resting on your gums. The result is a more secure denture with less shifting. Dental implants are especially helpful for securing bottom dentures, where normal dentures are more unstable.
· More Realistic Replacement Teeth
With any cosmetic dentistry treatment, you want your dental work to appear as realistic as possible. Dental implants improve the appearance of your dentures by creating a more secure look. Dentures are made from a gum-colored base and natural-looking teeth. By securing your dentures with dental implants, your dentures will shift less while eating and talking. Dental implants also protect your gums from becoming irritated when your dentures rest solely on your sensitive gums. Attaching your dentures to dental implants creates a smile that both looks and feels natural.
· Improved Oral Functioning
While dentures are perfect for restoring your smile, they can also negatively affect your daily functioning. Poor fitting dentures sometimes become loose while chewing food or speaking with a friend. Schedule an appointment with a reputable dentist to ensure your dentures fit properly. Dental implants will also improve the fit of your dentures by keeping them secure and in place for every meal and conversation.
