Losing one tooth can create big problems for a person, but significant tooth loss can be especially difficult to deal with. In addition to causing more problems for your appearance, the loss of multiple teeth further affects your ability to comfortably bite, chew, and speak. It can also make problems with jawbone deterioration, an issue connected to tooth loss, more difficult. Our Shrewsbury, MA dentist’s office has experience serving patients who need full or partial dentures to address issues with tooth loss. One thing we can do is discuss the inclusion of dental implants in plans to fully restore your smile. Implants provide stability for permanent dentures that can provide more bite support and comfort throughout the day. If you have dentures that have become less secure over time, you can find that the move to implant-held dentures (also known as hybrid dentures) can offer more comfort and functional support.
Dental Implants Can Permanently Secure Dentures
With a series of carefully placed dental implants, we can make sure your custom denture remains comfortable and supports you when you bite, chew, and speak. During an initial review, your dentist will confirm that you are ready to receive implants, and to see where they should be placed to provide the ideal support over time. In addition to providing support throughout the day, they offer the long-term advantage of stimulating your jawbone and protecting you against losing mass in the bone.
Advantages To Having Dental Implants Hold A Restoration
Dental implants give you more support when you bite, chew, and speak with a restoration. That can change your relationship with your appliance, as you will not have to worry that it might slip out or become loose at an embarrassing time. Implants also provide more stability so that you can eat a greater variety of foods and maintain a healthier, more varied diet. Because these posts prevent jawbone deterioration, you can avoid cosmetic and oral health issues that affect people over time when they have missing teeth.
Replacing A Removable Denture With Hybrid Dentures
Have you grown tired of a denture that no longer feels stable or secure? For many who have worn a restoration for a longer period of time, it can be frustrating to have a denture that they no longer feel confident in. At an appointment with our office, you can discuss the benefits of restoring your oral health by moving from a removable denture to a custom hybrid denture. Hybrid dentures rely on a carefully selected number of implants that are carefully placed so that we can give you a better experience with your restoration.
