The Truth about Patients with Dentures:
Patients with Dentures
- 62.5% aware their dentures move
- 50% don’t eat certain foods
- 17% eat better without their teeth
- 16.5% never wear their lower denture
Old Fashioned Dentures are horrible as the move, slip and fall out. They rub on the gum tissue causing painful ulcers. Over a Billion dollars is spent on Polygrip each year. The denture adhesives are messy and expensive.
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and placed back into the mouth, closely resembling natural teeth. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of the mouth. Dentures are designed to mimic the gradual wear of natural tooth enamel, ensuring a comfortable fit. Traditional dentures are an economical option, placed after remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed. Premium dentures are made from high-quality materials that are impact and stain resistant, and can be adjusted to reflect the natural color of the oral cavity.
Immediate full dentures, also known as temporary dentures, are inserted immediately after the remaining teeth are removed. They offer the benefit of never having to be without teeth but must be revised several months after being inserted. Partial dentures, a removable alternative to bridges, rest on a metal framework that attaches to the natural teeth and help patients experience better chewing and speaking.
Living with dentures can be challenging, as the muscles of the cheeks and tongue learn to hold the dentures in place. Over time, the denture will need to be revised due to normal wear and the continued loss of jawbone and gum tissue.
However, you don’t have to live with old fashioned dentures anymore.
Get DENTAL IMPLANTS Now!!!!!
If you wait to get dental implants there may not be enough bone left. Old fashioned dentures only rest on the gum tissue. These dentures actually accelerate the loss of bone and gum tissue. Thus, there is less available bone and patients will need advanced bone grafts.
However, when dental implants are placed the forces of chewing are passed down the implant into the bone. This stimulation keeps the bone healthy and stable.
