Loose dentures can be annoying, painful, and embarrassing. The artificial teeth that saved you from all the missing teeth problems at first, will eventually result to more problems with the passage of time as the dentures lose their comfortable fit. The once tight-fitting dentures that were used to solve missing teeth will slowly but surely become looser as time goes by, mainly because of its removable nature.
Removable dentures are not anchored to the jawbone, and do not address the issue of lost tooth roots. As a result, the jawbone undergoes deterioration because there is nothing to stimulate it to maintain its healthy structure. As the jawbone becomes thinner over the years, the dentures will become looser, resulting to uncontrolled movement. Dentures that move unexpectedly cause pain and embarrassment to the denture wearer, especially since they can shift from their position with even the slightest mouth movement.
Dentures can be securely held in place with the help of dental implants. The implants are inserted into the jawbone, and then used to firmly attach the dentures or fixed dental bridge in place. Implant supported dentures will not move around anymore since they are firmly secured to the jawbone. Loose dentures are a thing of the past with the help of dental implants, giving you a secure smile you can fully enjoy and be confident about without worrying about your teeth moving around uncontrollably.
