Dentures provide an affordable, convenient method of tooth replacement. Millions of individuals opt for dentures to restore their smiles. However, many patients grow unhappy when they find that the temporary nature of the prosthetics they are wearing can dampen their enjoyment of everyday activities. Some disadvantages of traditional dentures include:
- Instability caused by poorly performing adhesives
- Changes in facial structure due to bone loss
- Dentures that shift or make clicking sounds
- Worrying the dentures may come loose in public
- Difficulty chewing
The Benefits of Permanent Dentures
Permanent dentures are a hybrid system, combining dentures with dental implants. Dr. Paul Fotek can utilize a few dental implants to transform your conventional dentures into permanent dentures, erasing many of the challenges you face with a traditional prosthetic. In an implant procedure, a select number of implants will be placed, integrating with your existing bone to form a strong, permanent foundation for your dentures. Your dentures will be altered to accommodate the implants so that they may be snapped onto them, providing you with the comfortable, yet snug fit associated with permanent dentures. Dental implants have long been a preferred solution for tooth replacement due to their many benefits, which include:
- Bone preservation properties
- And More!
