Pasadena Texas: Denture Options
Dentures that look and feel just like natural teeth with dental implant dentures! Dentures are substitutes for missing teeth. They are a plastic dental prosthesis that goes in and out of your mouth. With old fashioned dentures you get loose painful dentures because the dentures only rest on the gum tissue. The cheeks, tongue, eating, talking, laughing, sneezing and coughing cause the denture to move. Get the best, upgrade to dental implant dentures and change your life.
What are Dental Implant Dentures?
Unlike a regular denture, which rests on your gums, dental implant dentures are anchored into your mouth by dental implants. With implant dentures the special denture snaps into place on the implants. There is a stable and secure connection. No more slipping or coming loose in the mouth. Implant dentures eliminate the need for denture paste or adhesives. The implant denture is removed at night for cleaning.
Basics of a Dental Implant
Dental implants are long-term replacements that Dr. Nugent will surgically place into your jawbone. The dental implants are made out of medical grade titanium. Bone loves titanium and will literally “fuses” to the jawbone through a process called “osseointegration.” Your stable implant denture will not slip or make embarrassing clicking sounds making it apparent that you have “false teeth.” Dental implants are made out of titanium. Therefore, you do not have to worry about the decay or root canals. Furthermore, the dental implants will stabilize and preserve bone levels.
Caring for your Dental Implant Denture
It is vital to remove your denture at night and to clean it thoroughly. Also, attention should be given to the implant attachments in your mouth as plaque and tartar can form on the attachments.
Dental Implant Dentures vs. Old Fashioned Dentures
Old fashioned dentures are recognized to be painful and inconvenient. Most patients criticize the discomfort, embarrassment, and express unhappiness with their dentures. Dentures do not act as natural teeth. The old fashioned denture is not anchored in place and is free to move and float on the gum tissue. Old fashioned dentures accelerate bone loss after tooth loss. They do not stimulate the bone like natural teeth do. Overtime, the gum tissue patients relied on to keep their dentures in place will disappear. Thus, the fit of the dentures will be incorrect and the dentures will be extremely unstable.
Dental Implant Denture
Dental implant dentures provide the patients with a life free from pain, discomfort, and embarrassment. Implant dentures allow patients to throw away their denture adhesives. No messy adhesives needed with implant dentures. The dental implants will preserve bone and gum tissue. Dr. Nugent’s patients are amazed at their ability to chew, speak, and smile with comfort again. Dental implants have truly transformed dentistry for the denture wearer.
