Implants Make Life Better For Alexandria Denture Wearers

Alexandria tooth implants

The condition of your teeth significantly impacts your quality of life. Those who wear dentures understand this all too well. The path from healthy teeth to a toothless mouth is downhill. Tooth decay and gum disease are painful; fillings and root canals are costly and inconvenient. If the teeth can’t be saved, tooth extraction brings more physical and psychological pain. Extraction is usually followed by bone recession.

While dentures are preferable to having no teeth at all, they come with a host of troubles. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating and talking difficult. Dentures are not the be-all, end-all solution for missing teeth because they may require relines as the jaw shrinks.

There is hope, however. Dental implant technology helps halt the downhill progression of declining oral health due to tooth loss.

Dental implants can be used to replace several teeth or anchor over dentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow your dentist to securely attach an appliance so that it won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts are implanted into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a stable base for an over denture.

Did you know that some denture wearers retain only ten percent of their chewing ability? Implant-supported dentures can stop bone recession and restore near-normal chewing ability. Improved chewing function with implants can result in better nutrition and overall physical health. The psychological benefits are equally valuable. When Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry patients are free of embarrassing denture-slipping, they are happier, more confident, and socialize more often.
