Dental implants, also known as implant retained dentures, are artificial tooth roots that are embedded on each side of the jaw. The roots of the implant eventually become fused to the jaw bone, creating a stable foundation for a denture to sit on top of. If you need dentures, but are concerned that they will move around when eating or make it difficult to speak, then dental implants may just be the right choice for you.
Dental implants are a great option as long as you have good oral hygiene and enough jaw bone left for the roots to sit on top of and fuse with. If you need a single tooth, just few, or multiple teeth replaced, this type of denture might be the one to work best for you. After you have the implants embedded in your jaw, it’s very important to maintain good oral hygiene and take care of your new teeth. This will help the dentures to last a lifetime, or decades at the least. Dentures also help to maintain jaw bone, as jaw bone often deteriorates when teeth are missing, which inevitably helps you to maintain your original facial structure, your face can start to droop if you have many missing teeth. They also help keep your mouth healthy and minimize the risk of oral health problems down the road.
Dental implants allow you to keep your dentures (teeth) in at all times so there is no need for anymore sticky adhesives or removing them at night! You can still eat all of your favorite foods without the fear of sliding teeth, and you won’t have to worry about slurred speech, either since these implants keep your teeth snug and secure. These teeth are built to fit the size and shape of your mouth so that they look and feel like your natural teeth. If you would like more comfort or more equipment to keep the teeth steady, the dentist will give you that option, as well, however, dental implants should leave you pain-free and feeling comfortable with your new teeth! If you do experience problems after getting a dental implant, don’t hesitate to call your dentist for an appointment to discuss your options further.
