Our goal at Manoa Dental is to ensure healthy and happy oral health for all patients. Having said that, dentures are a huge step backwards without benefiting from what dental implants can offer when used with them. Traditionally, dentures are fitted to your gums and require a combination of oral muscle coordination resting on "thick" gums for the best results. However, patients requiring dentures usually have receded gums or poor oral muscles resulting from their oral health flaws necessitating a denture to begin with. This is especially noticeable if the lower jaw needs a denture.
The addition of at least two implants in the lower jaw makes a world of difference in terms of improving stability and preventing your denture from coming loose. You can avoid any embarrassment of shifting dentures while talking or other inopportune times. When four or five implants are placed, a denture can function with the same strength as natural teeth. Imagine! It will be your third set of teeth without having to worry about cavities ever!
Your overall quality of life will improve tremendously with the addition of implants connected to your dentures! Whether you have existing dentures, or in need of transitioning to dentures, call us now for a consult appointment to find out what options are available to you!
