What can dental implants do for me?
Many patients suffer from missing teeth. The historic alternatives to missing teeth have been dentures or bridges but these are not without their problems. Many patients complain that their dentures feel loose.
Bridges, by their nature, require the adjacent teeth to be damaged to support the missing tooth. This can present problems later such as decay and abscesses.
Dental Implants can help restore confidence in your smile in a secure, predictable way without damaging any adjacent teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth or restore a whole mouth.
Irritated gum and mouth: Some denture wearers suffer from mouth infections caused by yeast, which settles on their dentures if they don’t fit properly.
Moving dentures: When you lose teeth, it disturbs the interplay between teeth and bone. Because gum and bone are no longer stimulated well enough by the teeth and tooth roots, the jaw bone starts shrinking and your gum pulls back. When this happens, your dentures will become loose and need to be adjusted. Loose dentures can cause sore spots or even painful inflammations. Adhesive creams will only provide momentary relief and should be used sparingly. Repeated application of an increasing amount of cream can be tedious, time-consuming and often disagreeable for denture wearers.
Difficulties eating, speaking and smiling: As a denture wearer you certainly know the feeling of not being able to eat what you like. Maybe you even feel uncomfortable smiling or speaking in public for fear of losing your dentures in front of other people.
