Eating is easier with dentures than with missing teeth. However, dentures can’t give you the chewing power you had before you lost teeth. Since dentures are held in place largely by suction – maybe with the addition of some adhesive – they can loosen and even become dislodged while eating. Because of this, dentures wearers often skip favorite treats. Wouldn’t it be better if you could eat whatever you like? With implant dentures, you can!
Once implants are embedded in your jaw, they fuse to your bone. So replacement teeth attached to them aren’t going anywhere! Your bite will be nearly equal to what it was before. You’ll be able to eat crunchy apples, juicy steak, and much more. Implants also keep your jawbone from shrinking, so your face will look fuller and younger.
Dr. Drake is a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. With her implant expertise, you can get an All-on-4®, a procedure where just four implants are used to support an entire arch of replacement teeth. It’s the most affordable way to replace a large number of teeth with implants.
