Although dentures are a quick and initially affordable option when replacing missing teeth, they are not necessarily the best solution. Many people find that dentures can slip out of place when eating and talking. They can even cause an awkward popping sound. When dentures are fabricated, they are designed to fit snugly over your gums. However, since they are only held in place with suction and an adhesive, if you experience any type of bone degeneration, which is inevitable with tooth loss, they will loosen and require replacement.
Loose dentures can prevent you from attending social engagements and smiling confidently. So, what is the best solution for replacing missing teeth? Dental implants in Chandler, AZ. Dr. Mark Arooni can place dental implants and fit you with a customized implant-retained denture.
Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime
When properly placed, dental implants can provide long-lasting, permanent results. Because they are surgically inserted into your jawbone, they are designed to permanently bond with your surrounding bone tissue – creating a solid, durable bond. Once you have recovered from the dental implant surgery, a customized restoration will be attached. Depending on the severity of your tooth loss, dental implants can support a single dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture, or full arch denture.
Dental Implants Provide Realistic Results
With advancements made in the dental implant industry, lab technicians today can provide lifelike implant-retained dentures that both look and feel like natural teeth. Your customized restoration will be fabricated from durable, realistic materials in order to match the natural shape and size of your former smile. Unless individuals knew you were missing teeth before, most people will be unaware that you have an implant-retained device.
Dental Implants Can Restore Your Dental Function
With an implant-supported denture, because it is permanently held in place with dental implants, you never have to fear your device slipping out of place or creating uncomfortable mouth sores. In addition, there are no food restrictions – making it a popular tooth replacement option. Being able to eat the foods you like makes dining out with friends more enjoyable, as well as improves your overall health and emotional wellbeing. Oftentimes, patients with traditional dentures are only able to eat soft, processed foods, which can hinder your ability to eat crunchy fruits and vegetables. An implant-supported denture can make you look and feel better.
Dental Implants Can Improve Your Oral Health and Protect Your Budget
An implant-supported restoration is the only tooth replacement option available that can replace a missing tooth from root to crown. Because dental implants fuse with the tissue within your jawbone, they can mimic your natural tooth roots. With each bite you take, the nerves inside your jaw are stimulated, helping to prevent bone atrophy, gum recession, and other oral health concerns.
Patients who only wear traditional full or partial dentures have a tendency to damage remaining teeth or experience bone degeneration. Bone loss can lead to jaw pain, facial structural changes, and will eventually require your denture to be replaced. Although traditional denture may be more affordable initially, the cost of having the device replaced every five to seven years will eventually add up.
