Albertville and Guntersville, Alabama
Dental implants are sometimes used in conjunction with dentures. Although traditional dentures or partial dentures may be suitable for some patients, they may be aggravating or embarrassing to others.
The problem with traditional dentures
Traditional dentures fit directly over the soft tissue of the mouth and are easily removable. They also tend not to fit well, which means the patient resorts to using messy adhesives. Some patients even lack confidence in their smile when wearing loose fitting dentures. Traditional dentures can cause mouth sores, and decreases chewing functionality, and speech.
Dental implants and dentures
At Wall Street Dentistry, we also offer the option of dental implants that can be used in combination with custom-made dentures. This procedure is most often used for patients who have had all their natural teeth removed. We place several or more dental implants into the jawbone, leaving a small portion of the implant above the gum, which is enough for the dentures to attach.
Benefits of cosmetic dentures with implants:
- Secure fit
- No messy denture adhesives
- Shorter adaptation period
- Improved chewing functionality
- Improved speech
- No embarrassing loose teeth
