Implant Retained Dentures
Do your Dentures Slip and Slide? Does your Face have a Shrunken Appearance?
Whenever a person loses teeth many things can happen (all of them bad).
To compensate for the missing tooth or teeth, the other teeth will move and adjust their position in the mouth. This can cause big problems with your bite and your ability to chew food properly. It can also cause changes in your diction and speech. It can also cause the remaining teeth to turn, twist and otherwise look and feel terrible.
Missing teeth also cause your face to collapse, not only because the teeth aren’t there anymore, but the bone that supported the teeth deteriorates over time. This can add years to your appearance. Denture wearers are particularly susceptible to these problems, mostly due to the inevitable loss of bone. This makes their dentures uncomfortable. They slip and slide and have to be “relined” or adjusted over and over again.
What’s the solution?
One excellent solution we offer in our practice is “hybrid dentures.”
It’s called a hybrid because it combines dental implants with a removable denture. Your denture “snaps” into place and is firmly anchored so it won’t move. It’s easily removed for cleaning or sleeping.
A hybrid restoration replaces any missing teeth. If you have missing gum and bone, it replaces those as well. Call us at 575-523- 5589 today for a complimentary consultation to determine if hybrid dentures will work for you.
