Dental Implants for Denture Wearers
Dental Implants could be the answer if you are unhappy with your dentures. Wearing dentures may have been the only choice people with missing teeth had 75 years ago, but that is no longer the case.
According to Dr. Mark Kujiraoka from Mak DDS, dental implants are the strongest replacement for missing teeth and can even help people who have experienced jawbone loss because of a missing tooth or teeth.
Dentures wearers all over the world ask their oral health care providers for a lower denture recline so it would fit like it did 15 years ago. Unfortunately, that can’t happen because of jawbone loss. A lower denture recline may work for some, but there will come a point when nearly even denture wearer will have to deal with the cold hard facts that it just won’t happen.
Jaw Bone Absorption
Jawbone absorption is inevitable. Without the bone, your roots or implants cannot get the exercise they need. Of course, the best time for dental implants is when you are having your teeth extracted. If this isn’t possible talk to Dr. Kujiraoka who may be able to recommend other dental implant procedures or bone grafting.
Replace Missing Teeth ASAP
People who have lost their teeth early in life should get implants as quickly as possible. If your teeth have seen better days and you are in your 20’s or 30’s schedule an appointment with Mak DDS for dental implants so that you can maintain the health of your jawbone throughout the rest of your life.
Missing Teeth are Uncomfortable
Having missing teeth is uncomfortable and painful, and if you do have a replacement, such as dentures or removable bridges, you know how embarrassing it can be if your teeth end up on your dinner plate if you tried to dig into a big juicy steak.
With implants, you can enjoy life again. Just as strong as your natural teeth, dental implants allow you to eat the foods you like without worrying about what goes into your mouth.
