You know that you have a problem. Your dentures are loose, and that is annoying, frustrating, and inconvenient, to put it mildly.
A Worsening Problem
Dentures rest over your gums. They are not held securely in place. When you realize that this won’t stop bone loss in your jaw. That changes the shape of your jaw and makes your dentures more likely to move around.
Dental implants are designed to replace the roots of your lost teeth. They are placed in your jaw, which does two important things. First, it anchors your dentures to your jaw, which prevents slipping and sliding when you speak and eat. Second, it stimulates the jaw to prevent continued bone loss.
Just as important, you can restore your biting and chewing power. That means you can eat a wider variety of foods. This means you will be able to eat what you want and improve the nutrition in your diet as you get older.
Don’t settle for loose dentures. Keep them firmly in place with dental implants instead. Call Charlotte Dentistry at 704-285-0846 to schedule your appointment in Charlotte, NC.
