One of the biggest complaints from patients with dentures is that the dentures are hard to keep in place. There are many denture adhesives available, but it may be hard to find one that works for you. And when a denture isn’t secured properly, it may lead to embarrassing slipping, trouble with eating, and a loss of confidence. With overdentures, many of these issues are taken care of thanks to implant technologies.
Our dentist can use dental implants to secure the denture in place rather than securing the dentures through traditional adhesive methods. After the teeth have been removed, dental implants are placed in the mouth. These implants have attachments that will fasten to similar pieces on the dentures, which securely affix your smile. This prevents the need for unreliable adhesives, and it gives the patient the freedom and confidence to go about his or her day.
19th Avenue Dental believes that one of the biggest advantages overdentures has over traditional dentures is that they continue to stimulate the bones of the mouth. This slows and prevents the bone loss that naturally occurs when teeth are missing. With overdentures, patients will not have to worry about the sunken, aged look that happens with bone loss.
