After having your implants placed, your dentures will be adjusted to attach to the implants.
A Solution to the Side Effects of Removable Dentures
You do not need to suffer from the side effects of dentures. A prosthodontist can provide you with a viable solution: denture stabilization. This process involves implants, which keep the dentures in place. This alternative to the traditional process is an ideal option for many patients.
In one simple procedure all the discomfort of dentures can be eliminated
One of the top factors you should explore is the side effects. Wearing dentures comes with the chance of experiencing some common side effects. If you are prepared for these, you can manage them better. You can also undergo denture stabilization, which will greatly minimize the effects.
If you lose teeth, you are already experiencing significant bone loss. Did you know that you are also probably losing bone tissue elsewhere? People typically lose teeth due to advanced gum disease, known as periodontitis. Bone loss is one of the unfortunate effects of advanced gum disease.
When you wear removable dentures, you take them out at certain times. When you are not wearing your dentures, more bone loss can occur. You can also experience the loss of other tissue, like the gums. The gums recede when they do not come in contact with teeth.
