If you have lost all or most of your teeth, it’s important to replace them. Our Littleton dentists can create custom-fit dentures for you to restore the appearance and functionality of your smile. Dentures not only allow you to eat and speak normally again, they also make your face appear fuller and more natural, preventing the hollowed-out look that missing teeth often cause.
We go to great lengths to ensure your dentures are comfortable, look natural, and stay firmly in place on a daily basis. One of the ways we accomplish this is by supporting your dentures with dental implants.
Traditionally, dentures use adhesives for support, but these products are ineffective at best. They do not have the strength to give your dentures the same function as your natural teeth, and they often slide out of place, interfering with proper chewing and speaking. Worse still, this method of denture support causes uneven pressure on your jaw, ultimately leading to more bone loss.
By using dental implants to anchor your dentures, you can avoid all of these issues.
Advantages of Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures will restore up to 95% of your chewing ability, helping you:
- Preserve bone
- Increase stability
- Improve speech
- Restore lost lip support
- Increase your comfort level
With implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy a strong, functional bite again, allowing you to eat a wider variety of foods. Best of all, the annoyance of slipping dentures and the mess of adhesives will be a thing of the past.
During a personal consultation, the dentist will determine whether or not implant-supported dentures are right for you. Some patients may be able to fully restore their smile with dental implants, eliminating the need for dentures completely. The right tooth replacement method for you will be determined after a thorough examination.
