The holiday season is a wonderful time to celebrate family and friendships, not to mention a time for eating lots of delicious foods. But if you wear dentures, you may already be worried about how you’ll cope during the next few months. Without stable, strong teeth, it can be difficult to feel confident talking and laughing or worrisome to eat in front of others. Now is the perfect time to upgrade your dentures with dental implants!
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant supported dentures combine time-tested dentures with permanent dental implants to provide a fixed and stable solution. Unlike traditional removable dentures, this option relies on two or more dental implants instead of your gums to remain secure. Especially for a lower denture, the added stability from dental implants can make it easier to bite and chew foods.
How Implant Supported Dentures Work
Your current dentures rest over your gums and rely on natural suction or pastes and adhesives to remain in place. This often causes painful sores as your dentures slip and move. Over time, as your jaw shrinks, your dentures won’t fit anymore and will need relining or replacement. Implant supported dentures, alternatively, use two or more dental implants for support. These implants are surgically inserted into your jawbone and will provide natural stimulation just like tooth roots.
Your denture will snap onto these dental implants, where they’ll also receive the support and stability needed to function more like natural teeth. Secured and strong, implant supported dentures allow you to eat a wider variety of foods with ease, and you’ll no longer need to worry if your dentures will fall out when you least expect! Implant supported dentures provide the confidence boost you need to enjoy a happy and fulfilled holiday season with family and friends.
