Dr. Han can replace your missing teeth with implant dentures!
Missing teeth can affect your occlusion (bite) as well as your ability to speak and chew. Tooth loss can increase the burden (the pressure) on your remaining teeth, and can also lead to pain and headaches. And of course, missing teeth can affect your appearance!
Many people think that implants are just for replacing single missing teeth. However, implants are also a fantastic solution for patients who wear dentures and are looking for way to make their dentures more secure and more comfortable.
Types of Dentures
Dentures should not change your appearance. Instead, they should resemble your natural look. Three types of dentures include:
Conventional Dentures: Conventional dentures are fully removable. They are designed and placed after the mouth is fully healed and form a seal with the gums. Partial dentures clasp onto the natural teeth on either side of the gap.
Immediate Dentures: You don’t have to go a day without missing teeth if you utilize immediate dentures. These dentures are placed the same day your remaining teeth are removed. They may require a few adjustments in the future.
Implant Supported Dentures: Partial or complete dentures can be anchored by denture implants, and they provide extra stability to your new smile.
Some people find removable dentures—whether a full denture or a partial denture—difficult to wear. Removable dentures may be uncomfortable or painful, and some people have trouble with speech when wearing removable dentures. Often, people have to change their eating habits to accommodate removable dentures, and problems with dental occlusion (bite) may develop with ill-fitting or loose dentures.
If any of the situations listed above sound familiar to you, you might be a candidate for implant-supported dentures.
Below is a list of some of the Many Benefits of Dental Implant Supported Dentures:
- Improves confidence
- Attractive results
- Stability while eating
- Improves speech
- Preserves bone and gum tissue
- Improves oral hygiene
- Recovers chewing ability
