Feel Secure by Eliminating Loose Dentures

You shouldn’t fight with your teeth. If you have all your healthy teeth, that probably isn’t an issue for you. If you are living with loose-fitting dentures, then you understand why this can be a problem.

You can end the frustrations that come with loose dentures. Jennifer Perkins DDS in Huntsville, AL can help. Call 256-801-0002 to discuss what we can do for you.

It Can Get Worse

For previous generations, dentures were often the best option available as teeth replacements. Unfortunately, dentures don’t prevent more problems.

Dentures rest over your gums. As a result, they don’t prevent bone loss in your jaw.

That can change the shape of your mouth, which makes dentures feel looser. To compensate, you may find that you are using more and more denture adhesive, but that’s only helpful in a limited way.

In other words, your loose dentures can get even looser.

Replacing Isn’t Resolving

Yes, you can get new dentures that are made to fit your mouth as it has changed. Yet, that isn’t going to prevent the ongoing bone loss in your jaw.

You could keep replacing your dentures, or you could invest in a long-term solution.

Making a Lasting Investment

Dental implants can help you avoid the issues that come with standard dentures. Implants replace the roots of your missing teeth. Implants are placed in your jaw. They provide stimulation that encourages new bone tissue growth. This prevents the bone loss that causes your mouth to change shape.

Plus, implants provide security that you can’t get with adhesives. This keeps your dentures from sliding around when you are speaking and eating. In other words, implants can make your feel like you have real teeth again.
