Best Way To Keep Dentures In
When you are thinking about replacing your missing teeth, one of the most common questions that tend to pop up is how will they stay in place? and what is the best options.
Dentures are traditionally held in place by using the suction of your gums to keep them in place. By being made for your mouth precisely, they will sit in the correct position comfortably. If your dentures have not been carefully made for your mouth, they can cause sores as they rub and you may find you have to rely on something like denture fixatives to help keep them in place.
Partial dentures can use what is know as precision attachments that takes advantages of your remaining teeth to offer stability and security to your new teeth.
Depending on what type of denture you require, we will discuss the different options that can also accompany that treatment.
One of the most securest ways and often considered the gold standard in tooth replacement is through the use of dental implants. For this option we would work with a local implant dentist who places the implants for you. Implants are titanium or ceramic screws that are placed into your jaw bone and act as new roots for your teeth. We then custom make a denture that will then sit on top of these implants. The implants help anchor the denture in place. This is the most expensive option as does require the most treatment, and you will be seen by ourselves and a dentist who places the implants. But it does give you piece of mind as when your eating, talking, drinking or socializing, you will know that your dentures are going no where.
