These Aren’t Your Grandparents’ Dentures | Walnut Creek Dentist

denturesHaving the need to wear dentures isn’t necessary for everyone but they are necessary for some. Unfortunately, when we think about having dentures, we think about having a set of teeth in a glass on our nightstand. But what if there was a way for you to wear dentures without anyone knowing you are? Would you be more willing to give them a shot? Fortunately, there is – implant-supported dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are a more permanent solution to regular dentures that can slip, are painful and make it hard to eat. They are custom made to fit your mouth and needs, making them an ideal option for most because you can carry on with life as you once did. If you are a patient that doesn’t necessarily need full dentures, you can get partials in this same fashion. In fact, there are several different types of implant supported dentures available. Still not convinced? Let’s take a look at some of the basics to familiarize yourself with your new smile.

Traditional dentures are created to be removable; implant-supported dentures are placed with snaps. The denture is then anchored to the implant snaps, creating a more stable and comfortable fit. If needed, two or more implants snaps can be used. The more implant snaps used, the more stable the dentures become. Not only will this ensure any embarrassing accidents from happening but will give you a sense of security wearing them. More advantages:

  • No adhesives
  • Easier to chew
  • More comfortable than traditional dentures
  • Improved speech
  • Visual appearance
  • Reduced bone loss common with traditional dentures

Say goodbye to your grandparents’ dentures and hello to your brand-new smile!
