Optimal Stability for Denture Wearers in Independence, MO
Dentures allow you to chew, speak, and smile if you are missing all or most of your teeth. However, denture wearers often have multiple complaints with conventional dentures. If your dentures are held in place with only adhesive paste, you may have trouble with slippage. Frequent slippage can cause embarrassment and even force you to forgo popular foods like steak, corn-on-the-cob, etc. Furthermore, patients often state that they find conventional dentures to be uncomfortable.
Overdentures are the solution. Dental implants hold these dentures in position, so you enjoy absolute stability. Wearers of overdentures also report that these prosthetics are superior in comfort to conventional dentures.
There are many different types of overdentures:
- Traditional implant-supported
- Mini implant-supported
- Supported by a few remaining tooth roots
