How Dental Implants Are Changing Dentures

How Dental Implants are Changing Dentures in LafayetteIf you wear dentures, you know that they are not the ideal solution for missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette are proving to be a superior option.

Conventional dentures do not feel and function like natural teeth. Problems with them include slipping, gum irritation, trouble eating and talking, bone loss, and inability to taste food due to a covered palate.

The good news? Dental implant technology offers a betterĀ  solution. If you currently wear traditional dentures and are not happy with them, implant anchored dentures may dramatically change your life. Your chewing ability will be similar to that of natural teeth and you will be able to eat hard foods again.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. Single implants are used to support one artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a set of dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are usually made for the lower jaw. That’s because lower dentures tend to be the most problematic; the uppers are more stable and don’t need the extra support that implants provide. But implant-supported dentures can be used in the upper jaw, too.

Implant-supported dentures from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette are natural in appearance and built to last. To find out whether you’re a good candidate for them, please call our office to schedule an appointment.
