An Alternative To A Loose Denture

Dentures can offer so much to a person who has gone through serious tooth loss. With your restoration, you regain your complete smile, which means you can regain confidence and comfort in your daily life. However, when you depend on a removable denture, you can experience some frustration when it begins to feel loose, or when you feel it is not offering the degree of support that you hoped for. At our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA area dentist’s office, we can recommend that you make the switch to hybrid dentures. These restorations are held in place with a select number of dental implants. The stability can make you more comfortable throughout the day, and it can provide an added degree of functional support that will enable you to bite, chew, and speak with more ease!

Are You Tired Of Trying To Keep Your Denture In Place Throughout The Day?

A custom-made denture that stays in place with the aid of suction or an epoxy can have value, but you may find that yours has become less comfortable as time has passed. When you lose teeth, you lose the stimulation in the surrounding bone that keeps a sustained nutrient flow to the tissues and supports their health. As a consequence of this, those tissues can lose density in time, changing the fit of your appliance to make it less secure. Before you experience this problem, you can grow frustrated with the limitations of a denture that offers less bite support than you might like, or one that feels less than natural when you try to speak. By making the transition to implant-held dentures, you can still enjoy your complete smile, but you can enjoy more comfort and better dental function!

Making The Transition To Hybrid Dentures

By choosing to look into hybrid dentures, you can address tooth loss with a more secure and supportive restoration. The appliance is held in position with a set of dental implants. They will be carefully placed based on an evaluation of your jaw, with a limited number able to support the full denture. After you recover from this, your permanent restoration can be put in position. The implants will help with jawbone deterioration because they can stimulate the bone surrounding them, leading to more functional support. Because these restorations are made more stable in this way, they can provide a better experience for you in your daily life, which means you can enjoy a more varied diet, feel more comfortable, and worry less about keeping up with your prosthetic!
