What Exactly Is Denture Stabilisation And How Can It Help You?
If you suffer with loose dentures then you might want to speak to your dentist in Basildon about denture stabilisation. Let’s face it, loose or ill fitting dentures can be a pretty miserable experience for the wearer. They can affect the ability to eat and speak and in addition there’s also the ever present fear of possible embarrassment should they become loose during social occasions. Moreover, moving dentures can cause irritation and rubbing which can lead to painful gum sores.
So what exactly is denture stabilisation and how can it help you?
The good news is that those with missing teeth have several options open to them. In addition to conventional dentures and bridges a patient can also choose to have dental implants in Basildon. What’s more, those who have multiple missing teeth or entire rows of missing teeth, might want to think about implant retained dentures, otherwise known as denture stabilisation.
Implant retained dentures offer a cost-effective way of replacing multiple missing teeth. Firstly titanium implants are strategically placed into the jawline and over time the surrounding bone tissue fuses with them to create an incredibly sturdy platform. Once bone fusion has taken place then the implants are ready to support a framework of custom-made, full or partial dentures.
Just like conventional dentures the implant retained variety can be easily removed for cleaning purposes, however because of a simple mechanism they can also be secured right back into position. Once snapped back into place the dentures remain completely stable because they’re relying on the implants to hold them into position and not the suction from your mouth as standard dentures do.
So what does this mean for the patient?
The truth is that implant retained denture wearers no longer have to worry about what they can and can’t eat. The fear of embarrassment looming over them because of the possibility of denture slippage is also no longer there. What’s more because they’re fixed into position, they shouldn’t rub or irritate the gum in any way. On the whole with denture stabilisation the chances of wearers having a happy, problem-free experience are extremely high.
