6 Signs You Should Pick a Denture Alternative

Posted in Dentures

Are you ready to upgrade your denture? These six signs may say yes.

  1. Sore Spots

An ill-fitting denture can be more trouble to wear than it’s worth. If you have a hard time getting any denture to fit no matter how much you adjust it, then it could be time to consider an implant-supported option.

  1. Difficulty Chewing

Dentures do take some time to get used to. With practice, you can handle almost any food. But they’ll never compare to the security of an implant-anchored option. Dental implants won’t go anywhere so they’ll help keep your denture in place when you eat.

  1. Too Embarrassed to Laugh

No one should ever be too ashamed of their smile to show it off in laughter! If insecurity over your grin has turned your mood sour, then it’s definitely time to think about why you deserve a more confident smile restoration.

  1. Constantly Misplacing Your Denture

Most implant-secured teeth are not removable. You brush them just as you would regular teeth. This non-removable option is ideal if you have a habit of always losing your current ones.

  1. You Don’t Want Others to Know You Have a Denture

Even young people may lose all of their teeth. This can make it very difficult for them to have a busy social life. Implant-anchored teeth can let you live your life worry-free.

  1. Jawbone is Shrinking

If your denture is getting looser, that means your jaw has shrunk a bit. Implant therapy will help to strengthen your bone and prevent future wear.

Is implant therapy the right option for you? Ask your dentist for an opinion tailored to your needs.
