The condition of your teeth has a big impact on your health and well-being. Denture wearers understand this all too well. But implant-supported dentures from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry in Dallas are proving to be an outstanding alternative to traditional dentures.
The Drawbacks of Dentures
While dentures are better than having no teeth at all, they certainly come with drawbacks. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating, tasting food, talking, and laughing difficult. And dentures are not a once-and-your-done answer for missing teeth. As the jaw shrinks, they use relines.
Stop The Progression
Dental implant technology can improve the quality of life for people who have been wearing standard dentures. To a certain extent, implants curb the downhill 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 an appliance so that it won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a strong base for an overdenture.
Restore Chewing Ability
Implant-supported dentures not only curb bone recession, they also restore near-normal chewing ability. Improved chewing function with implants can result in better nutrition and overall physical well-being. The psychological benefits are equally valuable.
