The Benefits of Implant Dentures
Implant dentures work for just about everyone who is missing teeth, or people who have worn a denture for years. Implant dentures can work for you too, if you want a natural-looking, stable, comfortable tooth replacement solution.
When you wear conventional dentures for years, the pressure of the denture and the loss of teeth combine to cause changes in the bone in your jaw. The bone begins to diminish, causing facial sagging and loss of your firm jawline.
Implant dentures work differently. Several dental implants are placed in your jaw during a simple in-office procedure. Your bone actually increases to fuse with the dental implants, locking them in place. Increased bone means a firm jawline and more full, youthful facial contours. Implant dentures can give you a younger-looking face!
In addition to restoring and conserving the bone in your jaw, implant dentures have other benefits, such as:
- Amazing stability, because the dental implants are embedded in bone, and the denture, called an overdenture, is snapped in place over the implants
- A natural-looking appearance, because implant dentures are made of lifelike materials to closely resemble natural teeth
Implant dentures are a wonderful tooth replacement solution, and they can work for you too! To find out more about implant dentures and additional restorative, cosmetic, or preventive services, call Dr. Jennifer B. Georgiades at Emerald Coast Family Dentistry in Pensacola, FL, today!
