Denture Implants, Overdentures
Denture Wearers & Dental Implants
Dentures can correct problems resulting from missing teeth, since dentures replace the structure and functionality of missing teeth.
Disadvantages with dentures range from being loose, uncomfortable and unstable; especially when eating or speaking. Denture wearers often report that their speech is impaired and that they cannot taste their food properly.
Fortunately there is a solution using dental implants – with denture implants. Implants can be placed to provide the dentures a stable and comfortable foundation, essentially a ‘denture implant’ with many positives over standard dentures.
As for the disadvantages of speech impairment and not being unable to taste food properly; this is solved by the implant-supported denture being horse-shoe shaped – so there is no need for a plate!
Dental Implants Provide Denture Stabilisation
Problems occurring from loose dentures can be solved; ensuring that people are free from discomfort, lisping and awkwardness that conventional dentures bring.
Dental implants can act as anchors for either a detachable bridge (or ‘overdenture’) or a fixed bridge (or ‘hybrid’), removing the issue of dentures becoming loose and moving about inside the mouth causing discomfort.
