3 Benefits of Combining Your Denture with Dental Implants

Whether you’ve been wearing a denture for a while and gotten used to it or you’re receiving a denture for the first time, you may be wondering why you would bother to attach them to dental implants. You may be wondering “are implant-retained dentures actually worth it?” According to a dentist, here are the three most notable benefits you can expect should you decide to go through with this highly successful and long-lasting tooth replacement solution!

Improved Stability

One of the most common problems associated with dentures, especially dentures that are very old, is that they don’t stay in place when speaking or chewing food. This is because the shape of the mouth slowly changes over time the longer teeth are missing. While dentures can replace teeth quickly, they don’t exactly replace every part of the tooth, such as the root portion that’s integrated with the jawbone.

With dental implants, you can ensure that your denture stays firmly in place, whether you’re chewing food or speaking to friends and family. This is sure to give you confidence in your day-to-day habits for many years to come.

Stop Bone Loss, Maintain Blood Flow

The moment a tooth is lost, the bone responsible for holding the tooth in place begins to break down. This contributes to the changing shape of the jaw as well as the sunken appearance that can develop the longer you wear traditional dentures.

Dental implants are designed to stimulate the jawbone, which prevents the bone tissue from resorbing. Additionally, dental implants allow for proper blood flow to occur to the face and cheeks. This ensures that your facial skin remains elastic and does not sag over time, making you look younger.

A Better Biting Force

Even if you’ve been wearing a denture for a long time, you probably know how difficult it can be to consume certain foods on a regular basis. For example, most denture wearers note that biting into an uncut apple or large piece of steak is extremely difficult or even impossible.

With dental implants constantly stimulating your jawbone, your biting strength dramatically improves. This makes it possible to chew just about any food you want with confidence. As long as you practice routine oral hygiene and stay on top of routine checkups and cleanings, there’s no reason your dental implants can’t remain healthy for 30 years and longer!

If you’ve never considered pairing dental implants with your denture before, now is the perfect time to take this modern tooth replacement into consideration. Call a dentist today and they’ll be able to confirm your eligibility!
