If you wear dentures, you know that they are not the ideal solution for missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures are proving to be a superior solution, and they’re available at the Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston.
The problems with contentional dentures include slipping, gum irritation, trouble eating and talking, bone loss, and inability to taste food due to a covered palate. Clearly, dentures do not feel and function like natural teeth.
The good news? Implant- supported dentures may dramatically change your life. Your chewing ability will be similar to that of natural teeth and you will be able to eat hard foods again.
The idea is this: dental implants are titanium posts inserted into your jawbone. Within a few months they fuse with the bone to become a rock-solid base for replacement teeth. One dental implant can support one artficial tooth, while several – usually four – can support one full dental arch.
