Dental Implants Help Create Strong Jawbones

Dental Implants Help Create Strong Jawbones

It has been said that patients who have a conventional lower denture, not secured by dental implants, have never been 100% happy with it. The reason for this dissatisfaction is that the lower denture usually has very few points of support. When we can put in two dental implants, we provide the proper support for the denture. The result is that the patient has a much better chewing experience.

 

Most of the time when a person loses their teeth they have to resort to dentures, which is acceptable in some cases. However, especially with the lower dentures, when the patient does not have enough bone or teeth to support the dentures, they tend to move around. The denture makes the patient’s chewing experience unnatural and the denture is uncomfortable to wear.

 

For a higher quality of life for the patient, dentures are ideally supported, or retained, by two dental implants. The dentures are held securely in place for chewing, speaking, and laughing. The patient does not have to be concerned about them flying out of their mouths onto the table.

 

Conventional dentures are naturally going to lead to bone resorption, whereas placement of dental implants are going to stimulate the bone and stop resorption from happening as fast. When you have a regular denture it is rubbing and irritating the gums and the bone, because it is shifting. In essence the bone wants to retreat away from the cause of the irritation, so it resorbs into the body. The result is bone loss.

 

On the other hand, dental implants help create strong jaw bones. When a denture is supported by dental implants, the bone is stimulated. The bone remains strong rather than resorbing. In this way dental implants help promote dental health.
