If you’ve lost most of your teeth, you’ve probably thought about getting dentures. While they will allow you to smile and chew food again, they don’t feel or function like natural teeth. But you do have a more realistic option. You can replace teeth with implants.

To see if you’re a good candidate for dental implant dentures, call Aberdeen Smiles today at 605-277-9049 to schedule a consultation. 

In the meantime, see some of the reasons dental implants are the gold standard for replacing teeth:

  • Stop Bone Loss in Your Jaw – When you lose teeth, you also lose their roots. Without roots to promote bone growth, you’ll experience bone loss in your jaw. When your jaw loses bone mass, your face takes on a gaunt look that makes you appear older. Once inserted in your jaw, dental implants function like tooth roots. This stops bone loss and keeps your face looking younger and healthier. 
  • Won’t Slip or Shift – Regular dentures sit on top of your gums, where they are held in place by suction. This means they can slip and shift out of place – which can lead to some embarrassing moments. When attached to implants, your new teeth will stay firmly in place. Even better, you’ll never need denture adhesive again. 
  • Feel More Like Natural Teeth – With their tendency to slip, standard dentures can rub against your gums, creating uncomfortable friction. Since implant dentures won’t slip, you’ll probably forget you’re even wearing them. Implant dentures also won’t loosen over time the way regular dentures do. So you won’t need a relining procedure to maintain a comfortable fit. 
  • Allow You to Eat What You Want – With their secure fit, implant dentures give you bite strength similar to what you had before losing teeth. So you can eat just about anything you want, even crunchy foods like apples. 
  • Simple to Keep Clean – You remove some dental implant dentures daily for cleaning. Others stay fixed in place. If you choose the latter type of dentures, you simply brush and floss to keep them clean. Your dentist will help you determine which kind of dentures will work best for you.
