Millions of people go through the troubling experience of losing a tooth in their adult years. When a person loses their teeth, it can ruin their appearance, destroy their confidence and cause great hardships. Simple tasks like chewing food and speaking clearly can become extremely difficult, and additional problems like facial structure loss and jawbone deterioration can also occur.
When dealing with severe tooth loss, high-quality dentures represent perhaps an excellent tooth-replacement option. Dentures consist of natural-looking artificial teeth that are supported by a gum-colored base. They are worn inside the mouth in order to provide a person with the appearance and function of healthy, natural teeth. Although they can take some getting used to, most people who use dentures say that they feel very comfortable and that they work just as well as regular teeth.
At Oasis Family Dental, we are proud to provide patients suffering from severe tooth loss with strong, sturdy dentures that look impressively natural. We know that tooth loss can be a very difficult experience to go through, and a great pair of dentures can make the challenging ordeal substantially easier. Our practice specializes in removable dentures with denture stabilization implants.
Denture Stabilization Implants
Removable dentures with denture stabilization implants are held securely in place using a permanently implanted titanium metal framework that is surgically inserted into the user’s jawbone. Although the framework remains inside the mouth at all times, the dentures themselves can be taken out of the mouth for easy cleaning. They can then be quickly reinserted for general use. This makes the dentures easy to maintain.
When they are in use, the metal framework will keep the dentures steady, even when the user is talking or eating, allowing the user to feel confident in their new teeth. Overall, removable dentures with denture stabilization implants are a great option for any patient who wants a top-quality tooth-replacement that looks natural and can be cleaned and maintained with relative ease. When cared for properly, a set of removable dentures should last for up to eight years.
