The Ultimate Solution to Missing Teeth
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and improve the overall health of your mouth. Missing teeth can lead to jaw deterioration, bacteria buildup, and gum disease. They can also cause facial sagging, speech difficulties, and excessive wear on remaining teeth.
Fortunately, there is a solution that offers comfort and convenience: permanent dentures! This durable appliance has brought back many people’s smiles and restored the functions of natural teeth. Simply put: permanent dentures can improve oral health and restore the smile you thought was lost forever.
Why You Should Consider Permanent Dentures
Permanent or implant-supported dentures are a wonderful way to replace teeth that are missing, restoring your smile to its former glory. Unlike partial dentures, which use glue and can damage surrounding teeth and gums, permanent dentures are a sturdy and effective alternative to other types of tooth replacement. With just 4–6 dental implants, permanent dentures will give you the strength and stability of real teeth so that you can eat and drink as normal.
Permanent Dentures: Understanding the Types and Benefits
Two great options are available for people who want permanent dentures: Snap-on dentures and fixed-permanent dentures.
Snap-On Dentures (Removable Option)
Snap-on dentures attach to implants that have been placed in your jawbone. Although removable, implant-supported dentures are far more stable than regular dentures, which require the use of glue. Snap-on dentures are better than traditional dentures in many ways, including greater stability, improved chewing ability, and increased confidence.
Fixed-Permanent Dentures (Permanent Option)
Known also as full-arch restoration, this denture option gives people back their confidence and improves their quality of life. The prosthetic teeth are screwed onto four to six implants, depending on your needs. They are permanently attached to your mouth and can’t be removed without help from a dentist. This option best mimics a natural set of teeth.
