Millions of men and women in America wear dentures and partials, allowing them to enjoy the benefits of a full bite despite the fact that they are missing multiple teeth. At Thaddeus S. Michalski, DMD in Rocky Hill, CT, Dr. Michalski offers a variety of restorative dentistry solutions to help patients with missing teeth reclaim their smiles, including implant supported dentures.
Benefits of Implant Retained Dentures
While traditional dentures certainly serve a valuable purpose – allowing patients to eat and speak properly regardless of the number of teeth they are missing – these common dental prosthetics do come with their own set of drawbacks. Because the material used to fabricate dentures tends to change in shape over time, they must be adjusted periodically to ensure a secure, comfortable fit. Even when dentures are customized to fit a patient’s unique oral structure, they can slip or wobble when speaking and eating, leading to some pretty embarrassing social situations.
Fortunately, there is a way to ensure that your dentures stay in their proper place in a way that feels and looks entirely natural: implant secured dentures. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are placed within the bone of the jaw and the gingival tissue, serving as stable anchors for a dental prosthetic. Your dentures can be affixed to these implanted posts, allowing you to eat your favorite foods, speak with comfort and ease, and show off your smile whenever and wherever you like.
