Missing teeth can impact your oral health, and compromise your ability to enjoy everyday activities like eating your favorite foods. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether, from gum disease, tooth decay, or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures are a tried and true method of restoration, replacing most or all of your natural teeth on the upper or lower dental arch.
Traditional Dentures vs. Dental Implant Dentures
Traditional dentures are a removable arch of artificial teeth that rests comfortably over your gums. The gum and palate areas will come in the form of pink acrylic. Prosthetic teeth most often than not are fabricated from porcelain. Traditional dentures rest on the gums and rely on suction and adhesives for support.
Dental implant dentures are created by small titanium posts that are surgically embedded in the jawbone. After the implants fuse with the bone, they provide a very secure foundation. What course of treatment is right for me?
Dentures can improve not only an individual’s appearance but also their oral health in general.
