Maybe you have heard about dental implants: how they’ve been called one of the greatest steps forward in dentistry. At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, we offer several types of this remarkable technology.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is implanted in your jaw. A single post can support a single artificial tooth, while multiple posts can support a set of dentures. This article takes a look at denture implants.
Let’s examine the facts:
- Chewing: An implant denture can restore up to 95 percent of normal chewing function. Can you chew easily with your current full or partial denture? Can you bite apples? When was the last time you ate a raw carrot?
- Fit: Implant anchored dentures stay in place. An implant denture doesn’t slide around in your mouth and cause sores. Implant denture wearers who exercise regularly especially appreciate this benefit.
- Appearance: Is your smile beautiful? Can you smile confidently? How many denture wearers love their smile? Implant anchored dentures look like natural teeth. They don’t move when you smile, eat, talk, bike, swim, dance, golf, ski; you get the idea.
- Bone health: When teeth are taken out, bone recession can result over time. Because a titanium implant is an artificial ‘tooth root’ inserted into your jaw bone, your bone has a better chance of staying healthy. If there are no other adverse conditions present, your jaw bone should remain strong and vital, just as if the former tooth root were there.
