If there’s one thing that all denture wearers have in common, it’s the fact that they hate the way that their dentures wobble around in their mouth. It’s fair to say that modern-day dentures are lighter and more attractive than ever before but over time they all develop this annoying habit of shifting position when you’re speaking or trying to eat. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way, and at Complete Dental Health, we can offer a solution to this common problem by stabilizing your dentures with dental implants.
To understand more about the benefits of implant-supported dentures, we need to take a quick look at what happens when teeth are lost or extracted. Over time the bone that once supported the tooth is resorbed into the body, and this causes the jaw to shrink and change shape, which is why dentures have to be constantly adjusted for a tight fit. Implants are surgically inserted into the jaw and fuse with the surrounding bone to become a permanent fixture in the mouth that prevents any further bone loss. Once the implants have stabilized your dentures can be adjusted and attached to the implants to prevent them from wobbling and keep them securely in place.
