Dentures are one of the most used solutions for the ailment of missing teeth. They are temporary prosthetics custom designed to your mouth to mimic the look and function of natural teeth. Dentures are held in place with an adhesive and they must be removed daily for regular cleaning and application of fresh adhesive. One of the biggest complaints regarding dentures is their tendency to shift during wear or at times completely fall off. The failure of the adhesive during wear is one of the biggest struggles for denture wearers. The shifting or the complete detachment of dentures during wear, causing clacking and discomfort, is the reason why many begin searching for a permanent solution. Dentures do not address the underlying problem of bone loss. The lack of tooth roots to support and stabilize the jawbone leads to gradual bone loss over time. Patients suffering from bone loss often suffer from premature again and a “sunken in” look to their features.
Full mouth dental implants provide a permanent solution that looks, feels, and functions just like natural teeth. Dental implants have three components: post, abutment, and restoration. The post is placed directly into the jawbone to create stability and support for your restoration and the surrounding bone. The post acts like your tooth root and aids in preventing bone loss. The abutment attaches to the post and extends beyond the gumline to connect your restoration. The restoration is the visible component to your implant. It is custom designed to look and function like natural teeth. Restorations are designed by your dentist with factors like skin tone and facial structure in mind to create a natural look.
