Dentures can restore a person’s smile after significant tooth loss, which can have a meaningful impact on their self-esteem. With that said, dentures supported with suction or epoxies can create new irritations for a person. They can offer limited functional support, and they may feel loose or unstable when you speak. As time passes, and the absence of teeth roots affects your jaw health, you may find that your dentures feel less comfortable. If you wish to avoid these problems, you can make an appointment at our Katy, TX dental office to discuss having dental implants put in place to hold your dentures! This arrangement can make you feel more comfortable with your restoration, while also providing better functional support over time.
Dental Implants Can Improve Your Experience With Dentures
Dental implants make it possible to permanently support prosthetic dental restorations. These posts can support restorations of varying sizes. For a person who just needs to replace a single lost tooth, one implant can act as a sort of artificial root. For larger restorations, like dentures, a series of implants can provide support. All-On-4 implant dentures allow our practice to secure a denture with just four carefully placed implants!
Receiving Dental Implants To Hold Your Restoration
The implant placement process occurs after an initial evaluation. During that evaluation, your dentist can determine the placement of your posts, and make sure you have no oral health issues that might interfere with your procedure. The placement itself will see the implants set directly into your jawbone. After an appropriate healing period has occurred, your dentist can restore your implants with the custom prosthetic appliance you are receiving.
The Right Restorative Work Can Help You Support Better Bite Function
Restorative dental work to give you back your full smile can have a great effect on the way you look. Treatment to restore your incomplete smile can also lead to necessary corrections for your bite function. Losing even one tooth can make biting and chewing more difficult. If you have lost most or all of your upper or lower teeth, your diet can become restricted. It should be noted that unaddressed troubles with your bite function can lead to chronic pain, and increase your risk for experiencing TMJ dysfunction.
