Awesome Dentures with
Pasadena Texas Dentist Dr. Michael Nugent
Do not suffer with old fashioned dentures! Dentures are not a replacement for teeth, they are a replacement for NO teeth. Old fashioned dentures are a horrible experience. These dentures are not stable, are ill-fitting, and rub painful ulcers on the gum tissue. This is because the dentures are only floating on top of the gum tissue. Many people try to compensate for the poor fit of old fashioned dentures by using massive amounts of denture adhesives. This is messy and just plain gross. Once the teeth are missing there is rapid bone loss in the jaw causing collapse of facial tissue (ie. you look elderly).
Furthermore, the old fashioned denture rubbing on the gum tissue actually accelerates the bone loss. The only thing in dentistry that stops this bone loss is dental implants. The dental implant stimulate and preserve bone levels.
Dr. Nugent can make implant dentures that are stable and secure. The implant denture actually snaps into place and is held in place by the implants.
Implant-supported dentures are a typical type of denture used when a person lacks teeth but has adequate bone in the jaw to support implants. These implant dentures use unique attachments that snap onto the implants and anchor them to the jawbone, keeping them securely in place. Depending on the patient’s preferences and needs, these dentures can be removable or fastened.
Some of the advantages of implant-supported dentures are as follows:
- There will be no slippage.There is no need for denture adhesive.
- There is very little discomfort.
- The absence of a palate on an upper denture enhances eating.
- Improved chewing and speaking abilities
