At this point, you are ready to replace your lost teeth. Then again, you may already have dentures, but you are sick and tired of fighting with them. They slide around when you try to eat and speak, which can be embarrassing, frustrating, or both.
You can have something better. You can secure your dentures and rebuild your bite by coming to our practice. Call 480-235-4752 to set up a free consultation at EPIC Dental Implant Center.
Learn What You Can Do
When you are missing teeth, you hope multiple options for what you can do.
Option 1 is trying to leave without teeth. In the short term, this might seem OK, but it won’t take long to recognize why this is a problem. Eating is more difficult, and how you speak can change as well.
When you are missing teeth, something else happens as well. Without roots, your jawbone doesn’t get stimulated. This leads to a loss of bone density in your jaw. As your jaw gets smaller, it can change the appearance of your face as well.
Option 2 is getting traditional dentures. Modern dentures look like natural teeth. They also are made to fit your mouth. Initially, this can be fine. You may not be able to eat everything, but you can eat some things.
Traditional dentures don’t stimulate your jawbone, however. As your jaw gets smaller, it changes the shape of your mouth. This also affects how well — or rather, how poorly — your dentures fit. It’s a significant part of why dentures become looser with time.
Option 3 gives you back your smile and your bite. With implant-supported dentures, you can have a complete smile again. Your implants are placed directly into your jawbone. Since implants function as replacement roots, they do two important things. First, implants hold your dentures securely in place (without denture adhesives). Second, implants connect your dentures to your jaw, so your jaw gets the stimulation it needs to prevent bone loss.
Where You Get Your New Teeth Matters
You also have options for where you get your implants. At some practices, this can seem like a quest. You end up going to one office to have your implants placed. After you wait for your mouth to heal, you may have to wait longer for your dentures to be completed. Eventually, you’ll get your new teeth.
