If you’re ready to do something about your missing and failing teeth, you’ve likely thought about dentures. But you owe it to yourself to consider implant dentures too. When your replacement teeth are attached to dental implants, you’ll avoid many of the shortcomings of traditional dentures. 

The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implant dentures is by scheduling a consultation in our Frankfort, KY office. Call 502-783-6322 today or schedule one online

In the meantime, see some of the benefits of dentures with dental implants:

  • Prevention of Bone Loss – After dental implants are placed in your jaw, they fuse to your bone in a process called osseointegration. This allows them to function like tooth roots. They not only keep your replacement teeth in place, they also stimulate your jaw to produce bone cells. This prevents the bone loss that normally occurs when you don’t have teeth. Since your jaw won’t shrink, your face will stay fuller and look younger. 
  • Teeth That Stay Put – If you have friends or family members with dentures, you’re probably aware that sometimes they shift out of place. That won’t happen with dental implant dentures. Since they are connected to implants that have become part of your jaw, your teeth will remain firmly in place. Even better, you’ll never need messy adhesive. 
  • Greater Comfort – With bone loss, traditional dentures loosen over time. Loose dentures rub against your gums, creating sore spots. This won’t happen with implant dentures. Your new teeth feel and function almost exactly like natural teeth. You’ll probably forget you even have them! 
  • Better Diet – Your chewing ability suffers with regular dentures. Studies show that dentures wearers only have about 20-25 percent of their former bite power. That causes you to change your diet, eliminating foods you have trouble chewing. Your ability to eat different foods remains virtually unchanged with implants. So you’ll be able to enjoy a more diverse diet. 
  • No Special Care Needed – Conventional dentures require special cleaning solutions and routines. Depending on the kind of dental implant dentures you choose, you may need to do nothing more than brush and floss like you always have. In addition, since the fit remains snug and secure, you won’t ever need a relining procedure for your replacement teeth. 

We’ll connect you with an oral surgeon who will place the implants in your jaw. Once your implants are healed and ready to receive teeth, you’ll return to our office for your dentures. We will work closely with you and the surgeon on planning and performing your dental implant treatment.
