If you’re unhappy with the fit of your dentures, you don’t have to live with it any longer. Dr. Barry Polansky can assess your smile and come up with a better solution for your missing teeth. Dental implants are often a popular choice to restore smiles suffering from missing teeth.
If your dentures are loose, it’s probably due to bone loss over time. The roots from your natural teeth help to support your jawbone structure. Once you’ve lost teeth these roots are gone, so your jawbone will gradually shrink over time. While dentures replace missing teeth, they do nothing to replace the tooth roots, and thus don’t offer any protection against jawbone loss. Dental implants are anchored by a titanium post inserted into the jawbone, which mimics the tooth root. This not only creates a sturdy base for your dental implants, but also help to maintain your jawbone and protect against future loss. We can even use dental implants to secure your dentures, eliminating the risk of them becoming loose.
Implant-supported dentures could be a better choice to replace your missing teeth. If you’re tired of the slippage issues related with dentures, give us a call today to see how we can help. We’ll find the best smile solution to replace your missing teeth while restoring health to your smile.
