The condition of your teeth has a big impact on your quality of life. Denture wearers understand this all too well. Now there is a better option than conventional dentures: implant-supported dentures from Marcos Ortega DDS in San Diego.
Conventional dentures rest against the gums. They can irritate soft tissue, and make breathing, eating, tasting food, talking, and laughing difficult. Imagine dentures that are attached to the jaw, almost like natural teeth. Sound too good to be true?
Implant-supported dentures are already worn successfully by hundreds of thousands of people. A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. One implant can support a single artificial tooth, while multiple posts can support a full dental arch.
Implant-supported dentures have a number of advantages over traditional dentures:
- More stable. Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
- Natural in appearance. They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
- Built to last. Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
- Prevent bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.
