Implant Dentures

Dr. Anatoly Bensianoff, a dentist in Linden NJ, speaks about the function, aesthetic (appearance), and comfort issues concerning denture-wearers. Dentures are typically replaced every 5 years as they can begin to feel loose. Dr. Bensianoff suggests that this lost of stability and comfort can be counteracted by implant-retained dentures which is like “anchoring” the denture piece in place. Implant dentures can restore the confidence patients lose when their dentures just don’t feel the same.

Linden NJ dentistDentures have been a common dental solution for hundreds of years; until recently, they were the only option for patients who had lost all or most of their teeth. However, dentures did not provide the same benefits as natural teeth. Some of the problems that have been associated with traditional dentures include:

  • Dentures may not always fit perfectly and can cause pain, tenderness, or soreness in the mouth.
  • With time, the jawbone shrinks away from dentures, making them feel loose and floppy.
  • Due to this shrinkage, dentures have to be replaced every five years or so.
  • As bone and gums shrink away, the face and lips start to appear sunken-in.
  • Chewing certain foods can be difficult.

While patients with dentures had to live with these inconveniences before, now there is a solution – implant dentures.

Benefits

Implant dentures replace a full set of teeth just like traditional dentures, but without the headaches! This is possible because implant dentures are held in place by several dental implants.

Dental implants are small screws that are inserted right into the jawbone, just like the root of the tooth. The jawbone then grows around the implant, making it a permanent part of you. The implants are inserted through the tissue and bone, so they help to retain the gum and bone tissue that would normally be lost due to missing teeth.

Implant dentures can be attached permanently to four dental implants for a much healthier and practical set of new teeth. Because the implant dentures are attached so securely, they won’t rub or move uncomfortably in the mouth. They are also better equipped to bite into apples or chew tough foods like steak. In short, implant dentures have solved most of the problems formerly associated with dentures. This new set of teeth is as close to the real thing as it gets.
