Poor Fitting Denture?

Many denture wearers are unable to enjoy the simple pleasures of life that so many of us take for granted. Chewing becomes a difficult and frustrating experience. Diet will consist of mainly soft foods that lack nutrients and fiber. Loose or ill-fitting partials or dentures can also affect your general health. Many traditional denture wearers mumble or slur their words due to slipping from ill-fitting devices or lack of bone support due to bone loss. Poor fitting dentures can actually cause further bone loss if not treated.

Dental implants offered for our patients can restore the quality of life for people who wear dentures. The boost in self-esteem and confidence that accompany a smile restored with dental implants can drastically improve the overall health of patients who previously suffered from loose or ill-fitting partials or dentures.

Dental implants are not susceptible to cavities (dental decay) and are usually much less susceptible to bone loss. Dental-implant-supported devices are removable by the dentist or patient for ease of maintenance, which is usually simpler and less costly than maintenance of traditional devices. When properly cared for, most dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime.

If you experience problems with your partials or dentures, implant dentistry may be the solution for you. Get in touch with Heritage Oak Dental to schedule a consultation.
