Losing a tooth can be a difficult experience, affecting your appearance, bite, and ability to eat certain foods. Traditional dentures have long been the go-to solution for replacing missing teeth, but they can be uncomfortable and require frequent adjustments. Denture implants offer a more permanent and comfortable alternative.
So, what are denture implants? Essentially, they are a hybrid between dentures and dental implants. Rather than using suction or adhesive to stay in place like traditional dentures, denture implants are anchored to the jawbone using dental implants. This provides a more secure and stable fit, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence.
One of the biggest benefits of denture implants is the improved comfort they provide. Traditional dentures can be uncomfortable, as they can rub against the gums and cause irritation. Denture implants, on the other hand, are securely anchored to the jawbone, eliminating the need for suction or adhesive. This means you can go about your daily activities without worrying about your dentures shifting or falling out.
Another advantage of denture implants is their longevity. Traditional dentures typically need to be replaced every 5-10 years, as the shape of the jawbone changes over time. Denture implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime with proper care. This makes them a more cost-effective option in the long run.
It’s important to note that denture implants are not right for everyone. The most suitable candidates for this procedure are those who have sufficient jawbone density to support the implants. If you do not have enough jawbone density, you may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure before and after partial dentures.
Overall, denture implants offer a secure and comfortable solution for missing teeth. If you are tired of the discomfort and insecurity of traditional dentures, consider talking to your dentist about whether denture implants are right for you.
