Any person with normal dentures knows that consuming a steak or biting on an apple is always risky simply because your dentures may slide and slip as they lose their attachment to your gums.
The remedy for this is getting the denture attached to implants in your jaw. Implant-supported dentures secure the denture in position, giving individuals reassurance that their dentures will not slip while speaking or eating in front of people.
An implant-supported denture is actually a type of denture which is reinforced by, and mounted on, dental implants which are attached on the jaw. A regular denture sits on the gums and tends to fit less strongly in the mouth. The actual implants are attached into the jaw and attach to the jawbone creating an anchor. If a particular person has enough bone in the jaw to support implants, an implant-supported denture is ideal. Such type of denture offers unique attachments which connect to the implants, allowing the denture feel firm and secure.
Patients point out the implant-supported dentures help make their everyday life more enjoyable, allowing them to even eat caramel at a social gathering and not having to be worried about the dentures sticking with each other.
Patients usually select from a fixed or a detachable implant-supported denture. A detachable denture permits the person to wash the denture more easily, while a fixed denture is constantly worn in the mouth, allowing the person to feel like they are actual teeth. Both systems have their advantages and the desires of the patient can guide Dominion Ridge Dentistry to the most effective recommendation.
