Implant Supported Dentures

The benefits of choosing Dental Implants to secure Dentures are numerous. The gum underneath Dentures tends to shrink over time which can lead to all kinds of issues including Dentures not fitting properly . Dental Implants help reduce the potential for bone loss as they stimulate the growth of the bone. Full Upper Dentures can also impede your ability to fully appreciate the subtlety of taste as they cover the mouth’s upper palate which is used for tasting foods. Implants (like natural teeth) require very little care and attention when compared with Dentures.

Caring for Dental Implants

Dental Implants are made using solid, secure titanium screws. Similarly, as with natural teeth, dental implants need to be cleaned and maintained in order to last as long as possible. Brushing dental implants should be done regularly to ensure the surfaces of the implants as well as the areas around the implant are kept clean and hygienic. Dental flossing also needs to be done regularly to ensure food particles are removed between the teeth and gum line. Flossing regularly can help prevent gum disease from occurring.

Regular dental checkups can help prevent problems with dental implants and also would be beneficial in preventing other dental problems from starting or worsening. Good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups are necessary to maintain dental implants and to ensure long-lasting beautiful smiles.
