While you can certainly prefer a set of custom dentures to life with severe tooth loss, you may be worried about what your experience with your restoration will be like. People can come into prosthetic dental work concerned about how comfortable their appliance will be, and curious as to what it can do beyond restoring your appearance. At our McKinney, TX dental practice, we can talk to you about receiving a set of stable, implant-held dentures. With the support provided by a set of strategically placed implants, your custom dentures can stay in place while you bite, chew, and speak, making life after prosthetic dental work more comfortable than you might have thought possible!
Using Implants To Keep Your Dentures Secure
Instead of relying on natural suction, or the use of epoxies, your dentist may recommend trusting a set of dental implants to keep your dentures in place. Implants make permanent support for your prosthetic possible by keeping it securely held against your jawbone. The implants will take on the role that the roots of our teeth play by anchoring your denture, and by stimulating your jaw. That stimulation sends out signals that lead to the delivery of nutrients to the bone, which will keep it healthy.
We Can Also Provide Partial Dentures
Not every denture is designed to replace an entire row of teeth. If you have several gaps because multiple teeth are missing, custom partial dentures can benefit you. With your partial dentures in place, you can have all of your losses addressed without having to arrange several treatments, and without the need to create several custom restorations. As with full dentures, partial dentures can be designed to carefully match healthy, natural teeth. As a result, you can feel better about your smile, while also enjoying great oral health benefits.
Addressing Minor Tooth Loss Can Help You Avoid Problems With Further Losses
If you want to avoid a situation where you need full or partial dentures, take action if you have already experienced relatively minor tooth loss. An implant-held dental crown will help you with biting and chewing properly, and the presence of the implant can be useful in keeping neighboring teeth from shifting.
