You can read about details on dental implants under that subject in our services page and as we alluded to, dental implants are a great option for people who already have dentures as well.
Dentures - Fit is Important
Often patients will complain their dentures are loose, or they move around and rub and hurt their gums. We can often place as few as two implants and then attach your denture to the implants with strong attachments. This way your denture is much more stable and does not move around and hurt your gums or look awkward in conversation. You can still remove the denture to clean it and give your tissues a rest while you sleep but during the day when you are eating, talking or generally functioning you will be amazed at how solid the denture is. The implant retained denture increases your ability to chew and your comfort. Most patients are truly amazed at what a difference this can make in their day to day lives.
Implant Denture Alternatives
For people who want to get rid of their denture altogether we can also place more than two dental implants and then attach new teeth to your implants that are NOT removable so they stay fixed in your mouth and you don’t have to worry about taking them in and out of your mouth all the time.
So as you can see there are quite a variety of options for using dental implants to help increase your chewing ability, comfort and quality of life when it comes to implant dentures. If you think you may be a candidate and are interested in exploring the options of dental implants then feel free to call ViVo Dental Westbrook to set up a no charge implant consultation.
