Benefits of Implant Dentures
Implant dentures not only make your smile look fantastic, but they provide great stability when you eat and speak. They function just like your natural teeth. They rarely need adjusting and if you treat them like your natural teeth, they will last a lifetime. Dr. Hitesh Shroff is a dentist at Dr. Shroff Plantation Dentist located in Plantation, FL. He can help you enjoy the improved quality of life that implant dentures offer.
More Stable Than Traditional Dentures
Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are fully stable because they are anchored to your jawbone with titanium posts. Over a few months, the bone grows around the titanium so the implants are just as stable as your natural teeth. This means that you can eat any foods you like – chewy, tough, or crunchy – without having to worry that your implant dentures will slip out of place. An added advantage of this stability is that it enables you to talk naturally.
No More Worries About Bone Atrophy
When you chew, the pressure from your teeth onto your jawbone stimulates bone growth. One of the problems with leaving missing teeth untreated is that your jawbone doesn’t get that stimulation and it begins to shrink. But dental implants eliminate this problem because they are embedded without your jaw and so they help it maintain its strength. This also means that unlike traditional dentures, dental implants never need adjusting.
Although dental implants are a more expensive option than dentures, they save you money in the long-term because you do not need them replaced and you will need fewer dental visits.
