Are Your Dentures Restricting Your Ability to Chew and Speak?
Normal dentures can be hard to live with. They can limit your dietary options, cause you problems speaking and come loose in your mouth. You may be embarrassed to wear your dentures in public, worrying that they’ll fall out or that someone may notice a difference in your speech.
Oftentimes people who have had trouble wearing conventional dentures would like to have their dentures stabilized with implants. Dr. Robert D’Alfonso
You’re not alone. Many patients report dissatisfaction with their dentures. And many choose to stay at home rather than risk having an embarrassing denture episode in front of others.
There Is a Solution
When your dentures aren’t working the way they’re supposed to, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Implants are metal supports fastened to your jaw bone that can be used to steady and stabilize your dentures.
Normal dentures rely on suction to remain in place. Implant-supported dentures, however, are secured directly to your jaw bone through implants. Dental implant dentures make chewing easier and don’t get in the way when you’re trying to speak. They clip on tightly when you need them to stay in and can be taken out at night when you go to sleep.
