The condition of your teeth has a significant impact on your health and happiness. Denture wearers understand this all too well. Denture implants from Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin provide a much more secure alternative to traditional dentures.
The Drawbacks of Dentures
While dentures are preferable to having no teeth at all, they certainly come with many drawbacks. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating, tasting food, talking, and laughing challenging. And dentures are not a once-and-your-done answer for missing teeth. As the jaw shrinks, they require relines.
Stop The Progression
But there is reason for hope! Dental implant technology can improve the quality of life for individuals who have been wearing conventional dentures. To a certain extent, implants halt the progression of declining oral health due to tooth loss.
Dental implants can be used to replace several teeth and/or anchor overdentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow us to securely attach dentures so they won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts (the actual implants) are inserted into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a sturdy base for an overdenture.
Restore Chewing Ability
Implant-supported dentures can restore near-normal chewing ability. This, in turn, can result in better nutrition and overall physical health and well-being. The psychological benefits are equally valuable. When people are free of embarrassing denture-slipping, they are happier, more confident, and socialize more often.
