Implant-Supported Dentures: The Next Generation of Dentures
Bring Back The Joy Of Your Smile
When you lose a tooth, you lose more than just your dental health: you lose your ability to eat your favorite foods, speak without a lisp, or even smile with confidence. Dr. Mihran Asinmaz has a special interest in helping patients improve the functionality of their smiles with implant dentures.
An Alternative To Traditional Dentures
One of the biggest complaints from denture wearers is that they worry about their denture falling out while they are eating or speaking. Sure, there are adhesives like Polygrip or Fixadent that you can place into the denture to help with loosening issues, but wouldn’t it be nice if you could just get rid of the “gunk” some say is disrupting their lives?
Implant dentures are a type of denture that is secured into the mouth using dental implants. Unlike regular dentures that rest on the gums, implant dentures integrate with the jawbone to provide superior support and reliability.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
Dental implants are the most effective way to “lock-down” your denture into place so that you won’t ever have to worry about your denture slipping or falling out unexpectedly.
- Implant dentures “snap” into place and provide extra retention to put a stop to moving or shifting dentures.
- The stability of implant dentures enhances stable chewing, leading to better digestion and absorption of nutrients.
- Because dental implants are placed directly into the jaw, they stimulate the bone to retain more bone density over time compared to untreated tooth loss.
- Facial features that droop, sag, or wrinkle prematurely will be improved by the restorative support and structure implant dentures provide
- Implant dentures fit with unparalleled security in comparison to adhesive dentures, reducing unnecessary movement and promoting functionality.
Say Goodbye To Denture Adhesive
Anyone who has worn a lower denture knows how difficult it is to keep it in place. People who have worn and still wear dentures will tell you how aggravating it can be to constantly place denture adhesive to make sure they are secure and won’t move around while eating or speaking. Then, there is the problem of placing too much or too little adhesive! Dental implants bypass all these issues and allow for a much simpler way to wear your dentures with comfort and convenience.
Better Than Adhesive Dentures
What if you’re one of those people who have been wearing a traditional denture for so long that the bone that holds the denture in place has shrunk (a common occurrence with prolonged denture wear)? No amount of denture adhesive will help secure the denture in place, and an aged appearance is often the consequence. Dental implants and implant dentures are a great way to regain attachment and support of the denture while promoting retention of a healthy bone density in the jaw.
A “Better Taste” With Implant Supported Dentures
Traditional full dentures on the upper jaw usually cover the entire palate. Although this improves stability, it blocks off all the taste buds on your palate, leaving you to wonder why you can’t taste anything anymore! Implant dentures free up the palate so you can enjoy satisfying meals once again. Thanks to modern dentistry and implant dentures, each denture can be re-designed to vastly improve the comfort, speech, and your ability to taste.
