At Magnolia Modern Dentistry, we understand the frustration that losing teeth can bring. It can be both physically and emotionally traumatic, altering what you can eat, how you speak and the anxious feelings you can feel around others. Today, there are options that can permanently stabilize your denture. With the assistance of dental implants, we can build an anchor to hold firmly onto your dentures, keeping there where they belong without rocking or slipping. You do not have to suffer needlessly with shifting awkward dentures. We are here to provide you with several customizable options, implant supported dentures come with a variety of options to fit your specific needs and lifestyle.
A dental implant is a bar, or post, that we embed in your jaw. It is available in either titanium metal or non-metal ceramic. Once set and healed, this post is firmly in place and can be used as a stable anchor to attach a prosthetic to. A full denture generally requires between four and six implants.
Traditional Loose Dentures vs. Fixed Dentures
Traditional dentures are known for their retention frustrations, they are supported by just the gums and an adhesive. These traditional loose dentures are known for shifting, rocking, irritating the gums and making it hard to speak and eat. Patients often complain of friction made sores making their prosthetic uncomfortable to wear. To add to the frustration, loose dentures are notorious for slipping or even falling out, which can be extremely embarrassing.
A fixed denture is a denture that is set in place with implants. The best part of implant retained dentures is it allows you to forget your wearing them. The gift of forgetting brings a lot of peace of mind. Implant retained dentures means better bone health, a supported facial shape, improved chewing, normalized speech, and best of all feeling confident in your smile.
