The dentures provided to patients are custom-made so that they provide a comfortable fit and look natural. Unlike partial dentures, which can be retained to remaining teeth with discreet clasps, full dentures often depend on suction or epoxies to stay in place. While they can fit well for a time, people who wear them can find that they become less comfortable as time passes. What is causing this change? Tooth loss leads to problems with jawbone deterioration, as the loss of teeth means the loss of their roots. Without the roots, there is no longer any meaningful stimulation of your jawbone, so the bone loses access to nutrients that keep it healthy. Dental implant-held dentures can restore stimulation, which means they can protect you against this. You can also find that the support of dental implants gives you more confidence in the stability of your dentures when you bite, chew and speak! (more…)

The changes in a person’s life triggered by tooth loss tend to be frustrating. One problem is a loss of confidence in your smile, as you can feel reluctant to reveal the gap where your lost tooth once resided. Another issue, one that can lead to increasing discomfort and dietary restrictions, is a change in your bite function.

Implants can improve your bite function and comfort with your restoration, which can benefit you over time. We can even help you replace a full row of teeth by recommending implant-held dentures!

At first, you may have had no concerns about the custom denture provided to you to address tooth loss. However, you may have noticed that it no longer feels as reliable or stable as it used to.
