The Problem With Dentures
Anyone who has worn dentures for any length of time can tell you that adjusting to your new restricted lifestyle as a denture wearer can take some time getting. The problem is that dentures do not help stabilize your jawbone levels and can become loose as your gum line shrinks over time. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it also causes embarrassing slippage and “clacking” noises when speaking or eating. Many patients report not being able to chew or taste their favorite foods as well as they used to. Even if you have been wearing dentures for a while, however, there is a solution in permanent dentures.
Implant-supported dentures are designed to snap into place with help from dental implants. Your denture is now securely in place, giving you a stable bite without having to use messy glues. The dental implants stabilize your dentures while retaining your jawbone levels, drastically reducing the possibility of your dentures becoming loose over time and needing replacement. These specially designed dentures can be removed for regular cleaning, or you can choose to have them fixed permanently in your mouth. Dr. Jeff Dworak will still be able to remove them at his office for cleaning and maintenance. Eat all of your favorite foods and speak confidently with permanent dentures!
