The two most common complaints with a denture are that they can become loose and create sore spots on the gums. Implants can fix both those problems! Because the bone structure in the jaw diminishes over time after teeth have been removed, a dentures adaptation to the bone becomes ill fitting and as a result, rubs sore spots and painful ulcers onto the underlying soft tissue.
With the development of dental implants, an Implant Retained Over-Denture can be made. This special denture connects to the implants for support and strength allowing the patient to not only avoid the problems of sore gums, but also it allows you better chewing ability while eating. The fear of having the denture becoming loose while out in public is no longer a problem! Implant Retained Dentures, hands down, has made the greatest impact on the quality of life for denture wearers.
