When most people think of dentures they think back years ago to image of their grandmother or grandfather removing false teeth and keeping them in a jar by their bed. Fortunately for modern day dental patients, Dr. Kacel, a trusted dentist in Highland Park, IL, can get you fitted for implant-supported dentures which not only provide more stability than dentures from the past but also will look so natural that no one will even know that they aren’t your natural teeth.
Regular dentures are fitted inserts that are held in place by the application of an adhesive. Many times these dentures don’t fit properly and this could lead to major problems. Your jaw can be damaged by ill-fitting dentures or by ones that cause discomfort and have to be removed constantly. By opting for implant-supported dentures you are choosing to have more natural replacement teeth that look and function more like your natural teeth. In Highland Park, IL your dentist can discuss options for your dentures and may decide that implant-supported dentures are better for you than traditional ones.
Implant-supported dentures don’t require the use of adhesives and fit better in your mouth than their traditional counterparts. Talk to your dentist in Deerfield, IL about having dentures fitted for your mouth and the possibility of implant supports for your dentures. A few dental implants will provide comfortable support for your dentures and are considerably cheaper than replacing all of your teeth with implants. The dentures are custom fitted to your mouth and held firmly in place by the implants so they won’t move around when you chew and you won’t have to worry about adhesives. The procedure is simple and before you know it you will be fitted for a whole mouthful of pearly whites that will allow you to eat and talk just as you always have.
Not only do implant-supported dentures function more like your natural teeth, but they also protect your jaw much better. The enhanced support provided by the implants means the you no longer have to deal with the soreness and discomfort that comes with poorly fit dentures that won’t stick in your mouth no matter what adhesive you use or how much of it you apply. Additionally, the wear and tear on your jaw from constantly removing uncomfortable dentures is now a thing of the past as you will have dentures that are perfectly fit to your mouth and are supported by implants, held in place more naturally.
