The condition of your teeth has a big impact on your quality of life. Denture wearers understand this all too well. The path from a healthy mouth to a toothless mouth is downhill. Denture implants from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO can make an enormous difference.
The Drawbacks of Dentures
While dentures are better than having no teeth at all, they certainly come with drawbacks. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating, tasting food, talking, and laughing difficult. And they’re not a once-and-your-done solution for missing teeth. As the jaw shrinks, they call for relines.
Stop The Progression
But there is reason for hope! Dental implant technology can improve the quality of life for people who have been wearing traditional dentures. To a certain extent, implants stop the downhill progression of declining oral health due to tooth loss.
Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, to anchor overdentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow us to securely an appliance that won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts (the actual implants) are inserted into the jawbone, and in time fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a secure base for an overdenture.
Restore Chewing Ability
Did you know that some denture patients retain only ten percent of their chewing capacity? Denture implants can curb bone recession and restore near-normal chewing ability. Improved chewing function with implants can result in better nutrition and overall physical health and well-being.
