4 Problems With Dentures You Can Avoid With Implants! [BLOG]
To replace missing teeth, you deserve a solution that will help you resume the life that’s as close to the one you had before you lost your teeth. For many, traditional dentures can’t do that.
At Attleboro Family Dental Care, we can use dental implants in a number of ways for replacement teeth that look and function like natural teeth so you can live the life you want.
4 Problems With Dentures You Can Avoid With Implants!
We’re not suggesting at all that traditional dentures aren’t a suitable option for replacing teeth. In fact, we provide high-quality dentures for patients who are better served going that route.
But there are some common problems with removable dentures that some people see as dealbreakers.
Here are four of them:
*You Have To Pass On Food You Love*
Your diet can only be as healthy and enjoyable as your removable dentures will allow.
That’s because all that keeps them in place is a special adhesive, and that’s not strong enough to let you eat steak, ribs, fresh apples, or corn on the cob.
So most denture-wearers notice an immediate change in their quality of life given the sudden loss of function compared to what they were used to, and the quality of their health down the road due to such a restricted diet.
*Dentures Slip, Slide, & Shift*
It’s a worn meme by now, the whole funny bit about grandma’s dentures sliding out of her mouth. In reality, though, moments like that aren’t funny at all.
They’re mortifying, yet, all too common with standard dentures. They may fit well at first, but over time, they loosen and slip around, making it hard to feel relaxed around other people.
*They Don’t Preserve Your Jawbone*
Since dentures rest on top of your gums, they aren’t always the most comfortable things to wear. In fact, one of the reasons you have to take them out at night is to give your gums a break from all that pressure.
It’s even worse if your dentures don’t fit very well because all the shifting can irritate your gums.
But the biggest problem with how they fit inside your mouth is that they do nothing to preserve your jawbone, which is what you need to have a youthful facial structure and true, lasting oral health.
*The Costs Can Add Up Over Time*
Up front, traditional dentures are a less expensive option than dental implants.
But given the maintenance they require over the years, they may not end up giving you as much value in the long run.
You’ll need to have them adjusted every few years, or you might have to replace them, and depending on how long you have them, those costs can add up.
Secure Your Dentures With Implants!
Rather than just accept these common problems that come with traditional dentures as just a part of getting old, you can look to the best option in modern tooth replacement.
Dental implants are it, and they are becoming more and more accessible thanks to the innovative ways they can be used in conjunction with a range of replacement solutions.
That includes dentures!
We can secure a denture using only a few dental implants so you can eat food you love, chew more easily for better digestion, and maintain a healthier jawbone for more lasting oral health.
