Consequences of loose or ill-fitting dentures
Discomfort and inconvenience
Like many denture wearers you’re probably unhappy with the fit or comfort of your current dentures
Ill-fitting dentures can move in your mouth while you eat and speak, creating pressure on your gums and underlying jawbone.
This pressure can lead to painful inflammation and accelerate the changes to your appearance.
Difficulties with chewing and speaking
Dentures often make it difficult to chew which can cause you to stop eating many of the foods you enjoy or those vital for your nutrition and health.
Additionally the plastic palate of your current dentures can negatively affect the taste and texture of food.
Your dentures may also impact your ability to pronounce words, leading to uncomfortable conversations with family, friends, and acquaintances.
Changes to your appearance
When your jawbone is no longer stimulated by your own teeth and tooth roots, it will start shrinking.
This shrinking also negatively affects how your dentures fit, leading to repeated visits to your dentist for refitting.
Missing teeth can further affect your appearance because your lips are no longer supported from the inside. Your chin starts to move forward and upward and your lips turn inward.
Thankfully solutions exist to prevent and reverse those changes.
The best solution for you
Modern solutions supported by dental implants are the best choice for securing loose or ill-fitting dentures.
Depending on your specific situation, as few as two dental implants can make a big difference in securing your denture, giving you new confidence.
Dental implants, which are placed during a surgical procedure, provide the much-needed stability in your jawbone that has been absent after years of wearing uncomfortable dentures.
New teeth from day one
Receiving dental implants doesn’t mean you will go around without teeth following surgery.
In most cases, your dentist will instruct you to use your existing dentures while the implants are healing and your new restoration is being created.
Removable versus fixed
The biggest decision you and your dentist must make is determining which type of solution is best for you.
Options exist that allow you to remove your restoration for cleaning or have it permanently fixed in your mouth.
However, a fixed solution may be the only choice due to your particular clinical situation.
One specific solution that provides you with superior aesthetics and functionality is the Nobel Biocare All-on-4 treatment concept.
Finally, remember you are not alone
It can be easy to think you’re the only one suffering with loose or ill-fitting dentures, but there are thousands of people having the same problem. But the best peace of mind is knowing that thousands have already improved their situation and self-confidence through the use of dental implants.
