Loose Dentures? Implants May Be Better for You

Loose, ill-fitting dentures are more problematic than they are helpful.

Your dentures should improve your quality of life and make it easier to function daily; if this is not the case for you, dental implants may be the better solution.

Advanced Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Alpharetta provides dental implants and mini dental implants to help patients who are missing teeth or want to replace their dentures.

Dental Implants

For many people, dental implants are the very best treatment for missing teeth. Dental implants are small, titanium posts surgically inserted into the jawbone and topped with crowns to replace each individual tooth. These are some of the many benefits of choosing dental implants:

  • Unlike dentures, which can become loose and uncomfortable, dental implants feel and function just like natural teeth. Patients never have to worry about them not fitting properly or falling out when they are eating or talking.
  • Dentures and bridges will likely need to be replaced at some point, but dental implants are permanent restorations. They fuse with the jawbone and become a fixed structure in the patient’s mouth.
  • Caring for dental implants is just like taking care of natural teeth. There’s no need to worry about messy denture adhesives or other inconveniences, and the implants can be brushed and flossed normally.
  • In some cases, patients who have dentures experience bone and tissue loss. This occurs for two reasons: one, the dentures are sitting on top of the gums, and two, the tooth roots are no longer there to provide the stimulation needed to keep the jawbone healthy. This bone and tissue loss is the reason dentures may become loose over time. With dental implants, on the other hand, patients enjoy improved bone and tissue health.
