League City Dental Implant Dentures
Dental Implant Dentures:
League City, Texas residents no longer have to suffer with old fashioned dentures. Dr. Michael Nugent can give you a new outlook on life with dental implant dentures.
Dental Implant Dentures vs. Dentures
Old fashioned dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for hundreds of years. Dentures merely rest on the gum tissue and are free to move around. Dentures come in and out of the mouth and must be left out at night. On the other hand, dental implants have only been around for the past few decades. Dental implants are anchored into the bone, do not move, and do not come out of the mouth. One must consider the different options when replacing missing teeth.
Most old fashioned denture wearers are unhappy with their dentures. After several years most denture wearers don’t even wear the dentures anymore and only put the dentures in when going outside. When teeth are lost the bone starts to disappear. Old fashioned dentures accelerate the bone loss. The bone loss contributes to wrinkles and a pre-mature elderly appearance. Messy denture adhesive is often needed just to get the dentures to somewhat stay put.
Lower dentures never fit correctly. The lower dentures do not stay in place because of the tongue and facial muscles knocking the denture off the jaw bone. They become loose due to shrinking gum and bone tissue. This loss of tissue causes the denture to be extremely loose and rub on the tissue causing painful sore spots and ulcers. Lower dentures also hamper your ability to eat or talk. A large amount of messy gooey denture adhesive is used in an attempt to try to stabilize the denture.
Upper dentures fit less poorly then the lower dentures. The upper denture has some benefit of creating a suction cup seal on the roof of the mouth. However, with speech and chewing the suction seal can be broken and then gravity works and the upper denture falls out. Furthermore, having the roof of the mouth covered reduces the taste of foods that you are eating. Patients still have to deal with sore sports and pain in chewing and talking. This is because of the loss of gum and bone tissue. With the loss of tissue the fit of the upper denture no longer creates a seal and messy denture adhesive must be used. League City needs a better solution to missing teeth.
Dental Implants – A Better Solution
Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. With the introduction of titanium dental implants, the suffering of uncomfortable dentures has been eliminated. Pasadena Dentist Michael Nugent can create custom dental implant dentures that are secure and stable. Patients can eat the foods they love because the denture is anchored to the dental implant.
No more loose and unstable dentures that fall out during conversations. The dental implants stimulate the bone and prevent bone loss. If enough implants are used on the upper denture then the denture can be made that does not cover the roof of the mouth.
