Old fashioned dentures have a myriad of problems. Sure you can smile again because that is all old fashioned dentures are good for, looks. But how is your chewing ability? Do you worry about the dentures failing out causing social embarrassment? Do you use massive amounts of denture adhesives? Can you tell your jawbone and gum tissues are shrinking? The old fashioned denture is actually accelerating the tissue loss. Are you looking for better denture options?
Dr. Nugent can create dental implant dentures that are stable and secure. These revolutionary dentures will actually stay in place without adhesives! Eat the foods you have been missing.
You’ve lost teeth and have replaced them with dentures. Amazing, you can smile again without having to cover your mouth. But how’s your chewing ability? Are you dentures moving around despite the “goo” you use to keep them solidly in place? The solution is Denture Stabilization. A few implants will secure your dentures into place and you can now chew any food without worry!
Old Fashioned Dentures Accelerate Tissue Loss:
When you are missing teeth the jawbone and gum tissues shrink away. Wearing an old fashioned denture accelerates this bone loss.
This leaves patients in a constant state of adjustment, discomfort and difficulty with everyday functions like speaking, chewing and especially smiling while trying to wear old fashioned dentures.
Dr. Nugent calls this the Denture Death Spiral. You lost all your teeth. The jaw bone and gum tissue starts to disappear. The old fashioned denture rubs the gum tissue accelerating this loss. The denture fits less and less. This causes the denture to rub more, further accelerating tissue loss. Patients have the denture relined or remade. However, there is now less jawbone and tissue to support the dentures so the fit is not as good as the first denture. This process continues forever because nothing is stimulating and preserving the jawbone. Patients look per-mature elderly because of the bone loss.

Denture Stabilization with Dental Implants:
Dental Implant Dentures
Your ability to eat and communicate may be hampered if your dentures are loose or ill-fitting. Dental implants can now be used to secure your denture to your jaw, thanks to improvements in dentistry. This treatment, also known as implant overdentures or denture stabilisation, provides patients with dentures with a more permanent alternative and can greatly improve quality of life. You will be able to eat your favorite foods again and smile with confidence, knowing that your dentures are secure.
- The implants will be implanted in your jaw through surgery.
- After the implants have had time to integrate with the bone and surrounding tissues, your dentures are set on top of the implants using a variety of unique fittings.
- This implies that your dentures can still be removed for cleaning but will remain in place once they are in place.
- Enjoy a more natural-looking smile and increased public confidence.
- Implant Dentures produce less irritation to your gums.
- You can eat, chew, and bite without worrying about your dentures falling out or having to eat only soft foods for the rest of your life.
