We are here today to talk about the ways that dental implant technology can be used to vastly improve the denture-wearing experience. As adults age and lose their teeth, it becomes more difficult for them to speak, chew, and eat like they were able to when they had natural teeth. Many adults choose to have dentures made to replace the missing teeth and increase quality of life. Complete dentures, however, are not as functional as natural teeth are and many adults experience frustration as they try to adapt to living with dentures. The American Academy of Prosthodontists has seen vast improvements in dental implant technology in recent years, particularly when it comes to replacing the entire dentition. Implants can now be used effectively to improve the fit and comfort of complete dentures. Today, we would like to explain the ways that this technology may be beneficial for you or for some of your older family members. Many people are unaware that there is a better solution than dentures when it comes to replacing missing teeth.

When teeth are missing there is a number of reasons to replace them. First aesthetically, this can be a difficult social problem.

Functional problems also arise from missing teeth. Speech patterns can be affected if teeth in the front are missing. Missing teeth also make the face sag and indent and give the “old maid” look where the chin appears protruded. (more…)
