For patients who are missing all of the teeth in one or both arches, dentures offer a viable solution that enables articulate speech and the ability to chew most foods. Traditional dentures do not, however, provide the stability and confidence of a natural set of teeth, and they often slip or wobble – particularly if they do not fit closely against the patient’s gums. Thanks to today’s advanced dental technology, dentures can now be secured using dental implants for a more stable and natural bite. At Highland Village Family Dentistry in Highland Village, TX, Dr. Ryan Thomas offers a wide variety of restorative dentistry options, including implant-retained dentures.
Why Choose Implant-Retained Dentures
When you lose one or more teeth, the bone tissue in the jaw grows weak and begins to diminish in volume. Over time, this process of degeneration leads to a sunken appearance throughout the face and can contribute to the loss of any remaining teeth. When a dental implant is surgically placed within the jaw, this destructive process slows and may even be reversed. Traditional dentures do not provide this benefit, as there is no longer a tooth root to stimulate the bone tissue.
Additional benefits of implant-retained dentures include:
- Dentures won’t slip or slide around
- No need for denture adhesives
- Increased range of foods
- Promotes a more natural appearance
- Improved comfort overall
