Feel the Difference that Permanent Dentures Make in Your Life
If you wear dentures or are considering getting dentures, there’s something important that you should know. Although conventional dentures have been used for hundreds of years, new technology offers a permanent denture option that is both reliable and comfortable for long-term use.
Permanent dentures (also known as “All on 4” dentures) are slim, streamlined dentures that are anchored directly onto dental implants. That’s right – they never come out! You can enjoy having a permanent smile all day (and night) long with implant-supported dentures.
There are many benefits that permanent dentures have compared to traditional prosthetic pieces:
More Freedom for Enjoying the Foods You Love
The slim “U” shape of permanent dentures means there are no large pieces of acrylic covering the roof of your mouth. By following only the natural bony arch of your jaw, permanent dentures make it easier to taste, eat and enjoy your favorite food and drink. You can literally eat anything you want and never have to worry about whether or not it’s something you can or can’t chew with your dentures. Instead of cutting foods up into very small bites, you can eat it normally.
A Perfect Fit, Every Time
Traditional dentures rely on suction to hold them in place. If they don’t fit properly, you may develop sore spots or need pastes to keep them secured. With permanent dentures, the denture is permanently anchored into place so that the prosthesis never rocks, moves, or wears against your delicate gum tissue. There is no need for constant readjustments or pastes, because the security of dental implants is all you need.
Dependability When it Matters Most
Implant supported dentures won’t ever come out of place. Implants have one of the highest success rates of any treatment in modern dentistry. In fact, implants can be stronger than even the healthiest of natural teeth. That’s why only a few implants can support an entire denture at one time. The results can last an entire lifetime.
Enhanced Aesthetics and Confidence
Having the security of a permanent denture gives you the confidence you need when speaking in front of other people. The unique design also enhances your facial profile, encourages healthy bone levels and makes you feel years younger.
Permanent Dentures Reduce Bone Loss
If you’ve ever noticed something about denture wearers, it might be that their face looks “sunken in” or their jaws are thinner than they used to be. That’s because of the strain that a removable denture places on the bone, combined with the natural aging process. Alternatively, permanent dentures actually encourage new bone formation around the implants that anchor them into place. Rather than losing bone and a change in the fit of your denture, implant dentures keep your jaws stronger for years.
