Are Your Dentures Uncomfortable? Ask About Dental Implants

For patients who have suffered significant tooth loss, a set of dentures offers an opportunity to once again show off a full smile when smiling and speaking. Because of this, you can be eager to have your custom dental prosthetic made. Unfortunately, many people who start wearing dentures can find them less comfortable than they expected. Even if your appliance fits at first, it may start to feel loose or insecure over time due to the loss of jawbone density that can take place over time. At our dentist’s office in the Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA area, patients who want dentures can learn about the benefits of hybrid dentures, which rely on a series of dental implants to hold them in place. With this arrangement, you can feel more comfortable with your restoration and more confident in its ability to absorb bite pressure!

Have You Had A Difficult Time Adjusting To A Removable Denture?

A removable denture will let you smile and speak with the confidence you felt before tooth loss. A custom prosthetic appliance will be carefully made to look like a natural row of teeth, and it will also be carefully made to fit securely with the aid of epoxies or suction. With that said, these restorations are not necessarily comfortable for all patients. You may be frustrated with an appliance that can slip in and out of place. If you have had dentures for a longer period of time, a change in their comfort level may frustrate you. By making the choice to wear a denture held by dental implants, you can grow more confident with your appliance, and also enjoy more functional benefits from it!

Using Hybrid Dentures To Restore Your Smile

Hybrid dentures rely on several dental implants that are set into your jawbone. When they are in place, and you have healed an appropriate length of time, you will be able to receive a custom prosthetic that is designed to fit them and stay secure. In addition to holding your restoration in position, they will actually help your oral health by stimulating your jawbone when you bite and speak, which will then communicate the need for your body to deliver nutrients to the bone and stop it from deteriorating.

The Long-Term Benefits Of Having Implants Hold Your Restoration

Over time, patients who have hybrid dentures can find that their restoration stays secure and comfortable thanks to the support of their implants. You will not have to worry about an insecure hold leading to your restoration slipping or sliding out of place and causing you embarrassment. You also will not have to worry about jawbone deterioration!
