Millions of people experience difficulties associated with missing teeth.
These difficulties can severely undermine your self-confidence and
quality of life. Missing teeth can compromise your health, eating habits,
speech and appearance. When teeth are lost, bone loss usually occurs,
which in turn can affect your denture. This can result in the denture
becoming loose, which may cause difficulty in stabilization of the denture,
decreased chewing ability, and deterioration of the jaw structure over time.
What Can a Denturist Do?
The preferred method of tooth replacement is the dental implant. In short, dental implants are a substitute for tooth roots, and form a stable foundation for permanent replacement of teeth. They also act as a support for full and partial dentures, since the implants integrate with the bone to act as an anchor for the replacement teeth.
Dental implants can also help preserve the bone by providing stimulation that was previously provided by the natural tooth root system. This helps to maintain the integrity of your facial structure.
Dental implants are the closest possible replacement for natural teeth, and the best way to restore your natural smile. The cost of these implants has become very affordable. Ask your Denturist about how dental implants might be the right solution for you.
Why Are Dental Implants a Good Choice?
Implant retained dentures are more stable and Areal@ feeling than most types of dentures. Implants are a proven restoration option with a long, clinical history and an excellent success rate.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Many patients who have chosen implant-supported teeth report they are happy and comfortable for the first time since the loss of their natural teeth.
