Dental Implants Keep Lower Dentures In Place
One of the biggest knocks against dentures is that they can slip. This is especially true of lower dentures, because they are more likely to move around when you are talking or eating. In addition, your lower jaw is more likely to experience the bone shrinkage that, after losing teeth, changes the fit of your dentures. Dr Walter Hadley on Lower Dentures
Fortunately, you no longer need to rely on suction and adhesive to keep your dentures in place!
In our Kennewick, WA dentist office, we can secure your dentures so that you won’t experience this kind of embarrassing slippage.
To find out how we can give you a more secure and comfortable fit for your lower dentures, call Marineland Dental Care at 509-591-0515.
Dental Implant Dentures Give A Great Fit
When combined with dentures, dental implants can replace anywhere from a few teeth to a whole mouthful. And thanks to the secure fit, your dentures will feel and function similar to your natural teeth! In addition to their stability, dental implants offer other benefits too:
- More conservative. We won’t need to modify your surrounding teeth for dental implants.
- Maintain bone density. Because dental implants stimulate your jaw much like natural tooth roots, they maintain your mouth structure better than other tooth replacements. This is not only better for your oral health, but it also helps avoid that “shrunken-in” look.
- Last a long time. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Providing Solutions For Your Thin Jawbone
In his four decades of dentistry, Dr. Walter Hadley has lots of experience with dental implants. He can help determine which option will work best for you, based on the bone quality of your jaw and other factors. One choice is mini dental implants, which work well if your bone lacks density.
Dr. Hadley can also beef up your bone quality so we can use full-size implants instead. He can apply a special material that encourages bone growth in either a bone graft or a ridge augmentation procedure.
