I Can’t Keep My Dentures In. Should I Use Dental Implants?
Patients who have been dealing with full dentures are often unhappy with their fit and function. These individuals are encouraged to visit their dentist in Glendale, CA as soon as possible to determine why their dentures are not staying in place and to determine candidacy for solutions such as implant-supported dentures.
What are implant-supported dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are full cosmetic dentures that are fabricated to snap in place with several dental implants along the dental arch. Dental implants in Glendale are titanium posts that can provide optimum stability and strength for full dentures—while eliminating the need for dental adhesives and reliance on natural suction and gravity.
Implant-supported dentures are a great way to replace all the teeth along the dental arch while ensuring confidence and improved self-esteem. Requiring dentures can sometimes make patients feel uneasy about their appearance or even the function of their smile following placement, but with implant-supported dentures, patients can safely enjoy all their favorite foods without fear!
Who is a candidate for implant-retained dentures?
Before moving forward with implant-retained dentures, patients need to speak with their Glendale dentist to determine if they are a great fit for this alternative treatment. Dental implants require patients to have sufficient bone structure to ensure safe, effective, and successful placement. Without enough bone, the dental implants can fail to provide the stability required for a great fit. Bone structure can be determined with the use of x-rays. In some cases, patients may be appropriate candidates for bone grafting which can build up the bone in preparation for dental implant placement. All of these solutions can be discussed with individuals when they are evaluated by our team of experienced professionals.
