If you have dentures, you may have grown used to the hassle, discomfort, and embarrassment that you experience on a daily basis. However, you don’t have to live with an irritating and ill-fitting smile. When you attach dentures to dental implants, you can enjoy the most natural looking, feeling, and functioning set of teeth available. Read on to learn more about the magic of implant dentures and how they can completely change your life.

First, The Downside of Dentures

Dentures have been used for hundreds of years to replace entire arches of teeth. Thankfully, today’s dentures are more realistic and comfortable than ever before. That said, they still come with many disadvantages, including:

  • Comfort: Dentures slip and slide around, causing your gums to become irritated.
  • Hassle: Many people rely on denture adhesive to keep their prosthesis in place. Plus, dentures must be removed each night to soak.
  • Self-consciousness: Because dentures slip and slide around, they can cause embarrassing lisps or even come out while speaking.
  • Longevity: Traditional dentures must be replaced every 5 to 7 years, which requires more time and money spent on dentistry in the future.

How Dentures and Implants Work Together

Instead of relying on suction or adhesive to stay in place, implant dentures utilize dental implants. These are small posts that get surgically placed in the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. They fuse to the jawbone during a process called osseointegration, which is why they’re so sturdy and strong. Once in place, an average of 4 to 6 dental implants can support a denture to replace an entire row of teeth!

The Power of Implant Dentures

By combining dentures with implants, you’ll be able to enjoy a number of unique benefits:

  • Diet: Eat all your favorite foods without worrying about an unstable denture. This makes for a more nutritious AND delicious diet.
  • Confidence: Speak, eat, and smile with total confidence in any situation. Your stable smile isn’t going anywhere!
  • Bone health: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone to prevent it from deteriorating. This keeps it healthy and strong while also helping you maintain a full and youthful facial appearance.
  • Durability: Even after 10 years, dental implants have a success rate of 95%. Plus, the implants themselves can last for over 30 years, saving you time and money on additional dentistry in the future.

Combining your dentures with dental implants provide you with benefits that are nothing short of life changing. To experience the magic that implant dentures can make, contact your dentist today!
