Traditional full dentures all too often do not fit or function securely. In particular, lower dentures move around significantly when chewing due to the lack of retention of the lower jaw. It can make simple activities like eating and talking difficult. If these problems are all too familiar, you will want to consider implant-supported dentures in Chicago.
Unfortunately, comfort issues are just the beginning of the story. Traditional dentures don’t stimulate the jaw bone when chewing and leads to a significant reduction of the dental ridges over time. This leads to an ill-fitting denture which in turn causes discomfort and lack of chewing ability. Consider the benefits of implant supported dentures in Chicago.
Bone Loss Prevention
In implant-supported dentures, titanium implants are placed surgically in the jawbone. The procedure is comfortable. These implants are extremely biocompatible and maintain the bone levels around them. Maintenance of the bone keeps the denture fitting well. A well-fitting denture increases stability and decreases the chance for irritation of the gums.
Since implant-supported dentures in Chicago are securely fitted in your mouth, you will avoid all the uncomfortable slipping around. Regular dentures are not held firmly in place and do not act like regular teeth. With implant-supported dentures, eating and speaking will not require a delicate balancing act from your teeth. You will no longer have to worry about embarrassing slips.
Increased Chewing Ability
Losing your teeth shouldn’t mean you don’t enjoy eating anymore. Implant supported dentures offer a host of benefits over regular dentures when it comes to eating. Regular dentures often include acrylic in the top of the mouth which prevents you from fully tasting your food. Securing your denture to implants eliminates the need for acrylic on the palate. It also improves chewing function of the lower denture up to five times. This means you can enjoy more of the foods you love.
How Will It Work?
With implant-supported dentures, you have the option of removable or non-removable dentures. These will be similar to traditional dentures in terms of maintenance. Non-removable dentures are cared for just like regular teeth with daily brushing and flossing.
