Most Americans, young and old, have grown up hearing all sorts of complaints about dentures, but not a lot of praise. Thanks to several recent advances in dental technology, many of those complaints about dentures are no longer valid. And with dental implanting technology helping dentures act just like natural teeth, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear more people praising dentures.
Perhaps the biggest reason you should rethink dentures is that dental implants make them exponentially more reliable than ever before.
Dental implants are either placed in the jawbone, just like your natural teeth, or affixed to a frame embedded just below your gum line. Either format will provide you much more stability and support than the adhesives and suction used to help conventional dentures stay in place.
Here are the main ways dental implants make dentures even better:
Better stability: because your dentures will be anchored to dental implants, they’ll stay in place – even when you’re eating fresh fruits and veggies.
Clear speech: conventional dentures can slide around in your mouth and distort your words. But because implant-supported dentures are anchored in place, you won’t have to worry about your words coming out wrong.
More confidence: after you get used to your implant-supported dentures standing up to everyday life, you’ll start to smile and eat more confidently – free of the worry that your dentures will slide around awkwardly in your mouth.
3D Imaging and Printing
Advances in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software has made it possible to have custom dentures, as well as other dental prosthetics, fabricated within a day.
So if you go to a dentist’s that offers Teeth Xpress® full arch dental implants, you could wear your dentures out of the door the same day you have your implants placed.
