While traditional removable dentures remain an effective way to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, there can be number of drawbacks to this tooth replacement method. Traditional dentures require suction or an adhesive to keep the denture in place, which may not always provide adequate stability leading to “slippage” along the gums. These slight movements of the denture can cause soft tissue irritation and make dentures uncomfortable to wear. Denture movement during eating can also be challenging and embarrassing. Furthermore, loose fitting dentures can interfere while speaking and smiling.
Fortunately, implant overdentures can eliminate all of these common concerns and enhance self-confidence. By securing an overdenture in place with strategically placed dental implants, there is no need for adhesives or worry. Patients with implant overdentures can enjoy a more comfortable, secure fit, and may find it easier to smile naturally and speak clearly. Implant overdentures also create a stronger bite, allowing patients to eat all of their favorite foods with ease. Finally, this innovative tooth replacement solution can help prevent the gum irritation and bone loss that is associated with removable dentures.
