Can dental implants really make dentures more stable?
If you have significant problems with stabilizing your dentures, one of the options that you might not have considered is dental implants. Let’s take a few moments to consider the benefits of dental implants. You will definitely find that they are one of, if not the best, options available to you.
One of the most common complaints among denture wearers is that they have a tendency to remain loose, or move too easily. This is particularly a problem for the lower jaw. Adhesives rarely work, and almost every denture wearer has had the embarrassing experience of having their lower plate slip while eating. But dental implants can provide you with the stability that you desire in an undetectable and relatively inexpensive fashion!
Some of the benefits of dental implants for denture wearers include:
- Significant improvement in chewing almost any type of food
- Improves speech and word pronunciation
- Reduces gum irritation
- Eliminates the need to purchase denture adhesive
Dental implants for denture wearers are safe and minimally invasive. In fact, studies have proven them to be the most effective of any kind of surgical implant. The process is very simple. About three or four small posts made of a surgical grade titanium alloy are placed into the jaw, allowing the bone to safely grow around it, while preventing bone loss. At the top of the post is a small ball over which the dentures are placed. Dental implants allow your dentures to remain as secure as if they were your own teeth.
As we age, some inevitable experiences can prove somewhat frustrating. For many people wearing dentures can be one of those things. When your dentures move or are unstable it can increase your frustration.
Dental implants, as we have shown, will completely alleviate the problem, and increase your confidence level. There’s no longer any need to be worried about your dentures when you use dental implants. Contact our Syosset office at (516) 348-8500 for more information.
