Why Are Denture Wearers Switching to Dental Implants? Implant-Retained Dentures

78769905For millions of edentulous Americans, traditional dentures make eating, speaking, and smiling possible; for many, however, dentures are uncomfortable, bulky, and cause more problems than they solve. Fortunately, there is a solution that allows you to enjoy the full benefits of a complete set of teeth without the worry of slipping, ill-fitting dentures: implant-retained dentures from Ted R. Hume, III, DDS. Conveniently located in Dallas, TX, our practice offers a wide range of personalized restorative dentistry services, including implant-retained dentures.

Advantages of Implant-Retained Dentures

Traditional dentures are held in place using denture adhesive and/or natural suction. Over time, however, the bone that comprises the jaw begins to deteriorate and change shape. This leads to improper fit and, very often, considerable discomfort for the patient. Chewing becomes difficult, and a slipping denture can lead to gagging as well as embarrassment in social situations.

With implant-retained dentures, however, your custom arch of replacement teeth is securely held in its proper place with sturdy dental implants, each of which is anchored within the jaw bone. The result is a smile that looks beautifully natural and a bite that is as strong as your natural teeth would be. Denture wearers who have abstained from their favorite foods for years are thrilled to bite into an apple again, to enjoy chewing meat like pork and steak. In addition to vastly improving stability of your denture, your dental implants actively help keep your jaw bone strong, visually improving your facial contours for years to come.
