How Implants and Dentures Combine to Create a Strong Smile

Posted on 8/13/2017 by Sergio Ortegon
 Dental Implant Ortegon Prosthodontics TX 77401
When you put dentures on top of implants, you get the best possible outcome for a sturdy smile that replaces where your original teeth once sat. You get the benefits of having a full set of teeth, without the normal downfalls that people often dislike about having dentures.

If you want to be able to have a confident smile that isn't going to fade on you, then you should speak with your prosthodontist about getting dentures placed on top of the implants.

Perks of Having Dentures on Implants

Implants are placed right into your jaw bone, much like a screw. Thanks to advances in implant technology, they are made with a bone-safe material that will fuse with your natural bone.

It allows your bone and the implant to work as a single unit. When you place a denture on top of that implant, it stays put exactly as your original tooth would have. The denture is the tooth, and the implant is the root, securely sitting in your jaw.

Traditional dentures hurt your jaw bone, by allowing resorption to take place. When you put a denture on top of an implant, your jaw is used in the same way it was with your original teeth. This keeps your jaw bone strong and healthy. Plus, since the denture won't wiggle around, you get the confidence of going about your life, smiling, eating, chewing, and such, as you always have.

Give your prosthodontist a call today and find out if this would be the ideal answer to your missing teeth. They can look at the current condition of your jaw and decide if you would be a good candidate for implants, and then come up with a treatment plan for you. You'll be happy that you did!
