Do you have missing or chipped teeth? Are your teeth discolored or deteriorating? You may be considering dentures but fear them slipping and sliding out of your mouth. If this sounds like you, you should consider implant retained dentures.
Implant retained dentures are like dentures, but they’re much more stable, eliminating the fear that comes with talking or eating. If you decide to get implant retained dentures, your dentist will install artificial teeth in the jaw and the denture will sit on top, creating a much more solid structure compared to regular dentures. The only downside to implant retained dentures are that they’re more expensive than regular dentures, but the benefits might make the cost worth it.
The benefits of these dentures are many. You can finally eat your favorite food without the fear of your denture slipping or moving out of place and you can talk freely knowing the denture will stay put. The stable environment that the denture creates eliminates pain and can improve your health by minimizing the risk of oral health problems. The jaw won’t be prone to deterioration and your gums will stay healthy. Most importantly, your face structure will remain the same. The dentures will be fit to your mouth and the teeth look natural. Implant retained dentures are convenient in that they don’t have to be removed at the end of the night and are generally more comfortable than traditional dentures. Implants versus traditional dentures are a personal preference, but if you think you might be interested in having implants installed, give us a call today!
