If you are currently living with removable dentures, you know all too well how simply inconvenient it can be to have them moving around on you. But it can be much more than inconvenient, can’t it? Dentures that do not fit right can be embarrassing, infuriating, and generally destructive to your self-esteem. We get it. And we want to help. The team at the LANAP and Implant Center can offer you a solution: dental implants. With dental implants, you can secure your dentures for good.
Taking the first step is easy: just contact either our Collegeville or Williamsport, PA dental office. We would be happy to answer your questions and help you get started with this effective security solution. Or you can read on to learn more. Either way, we are here to help you get the information you need to make the best decision possible for your smile.
Enduring The Inconvenience Of Loose Dentures
If you are like Judy, you have endured the unpleasantness of ill-fitting dentures for much longer than you would have liked. Judy has had removable dentures for almost five years now, and they have never quite fit her the way she would like. They are constantly popping loose when she talks and even move around on her when she eats. No crunchy vegetables or chewy steaks for her. Judy’s tooth replacement option does not make her feel secure or happy with her smile.
If you understand how Judy feels, it may be time for a different solution. Dental implants can be used to create security and stability for your dentures. With this option, you will not have to worry about your teeth moving around on you — they simply will not. Ditch the insecurity and gain a lifetime of strong, reliable teeth with dental implants.
Suffering The Consequences Of Bone Loss
Did you know that there are also health consequences of living with removable dentures as opposed to dental implant-secured restorations? When you loose your teeth, your jaw bone begins to deteriorate. Because your tooth roots are missing, your bone does not have anything to hold on to. Adding removable dentures does not change this fact. Your jawbone may continue to deteriorate, causing you to need constant adjustments to your dentures.
With dental implants, this simply does not happen. Dental implants are essentially prosthetic tooth roots that give your jaw bone something to hold on to again! They discourage bone loss by mimicking a natural tooth.
Removable dentures can also be a hygiene concern. They often trap bacteria beneath them, causing or continuing gum disease. This can cause bad breath and other complications. Talk to our team if you think this is a problem for you. We can help you find a solution.
Never Worry About Loose Teeth Or Eroding Bone Again
If you choose dental implant-secured dentures, you will not ever have to worry about embarrassment or bone loss again. We can place the implants to support a full or partial denture — we can meet any specific need you may have. And because your teeth are secured and supported by implants (which are surgically placed into your gums and allowed to heal to your jaw bone), you will be able to eat the foods you love again! Dental implants lend strength as well as security to your replacement teeth. With properly hygiene and regular maintenance at our dental office, your implants could last for the rest of your life.
