Ill-fitting dentures can cause more problems for Gainesville denture wearers than they solve. If you live with loose dentures, you probably regard them as a necessary evil. Though they certainly look better than a toothless mouth, in practical terms they leave much to be desired because they affect two essential activities: eating and talking.
Unfortunately, many frustrated Marion County denture wearers have quit dining in restaurants or engaging in social activities because they are afraid their dentures will slip.
Implant dental procedures are allowing former denture wearers to re-engage in life.
Consider the advantages of implant anchored dentures:
- They are stable because the implant is anchored in the bone.
- Your denture is fixed, it will not move around in your mouth.
- They prevent bone loss that can occur when teeth are removed.
- They eliminate the necessity of regular denture relines.
- They do not irritate gums.
- No denture adhesive is required.
Fort McCoy patients who have replaced their traditional dentures with implant overdentures enthusiastically say that the dental implant cost was more than worth it.
