Many people with tooth loss avoid visiting the denturist to get fitted for a pair of dentures. They fear that the dentures won’t fit properly, that they will fall out of their mouth, will look unnatural, will prevent them from eating their favourite foods, and will be uncomfortable and painful to wear.
But dentures have come a long way over the years, and now there are a variety of options available to you. One type of denture that is becoming more popular is dental implant supported dentures.
With this type of cosmetic denture, metal bars are placed on your jawbone, with the top portion sitting above the gums. The dentures are then attached to these bars using clips or another form of attachment, securing them in your mouth.
Because these dentures are designed to fit on top of dental implants, the occurrence of mouth sores is greatly reduced. These dentures will also give you greater biting force, allowing you to eat the foods you love.
With the dentures secured on the implants, you can smile with confidence, knowing that your dentures will look natural and that there is no risk of them falling out.
Dental implant supported dentures are easy to remove and the dentures themselves are cleaned the same way as standard dentures.
