The problems with dentures include slipping, gum irritation, trouble eating and talking, bone loss, and inability to taste food due to a covered palate. Clearly, dentures do not feel and function like natural teeth.
Good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups can help you avoid the need for dentures later in your life. Â However, other factors can make dental replacements an inevitability.
The good news? Modern dental implant technology is making dentures a thing of the past.
At Excellence In Dentistry we have information and expertise that can help bring hope to denture wearers in the Anchorage area through dental implant technology. There are a variety of effective denture/implant tooth configurations.
Call Excellence In Dentistry at (907) 349-0022 to book an implant overdenture consultation with Anchorage cosmetic dentist Dr. Kirk Johnson. We can help you understand your options and can recommend options.
If you currently wear traditional dentures and are not happy with them, implant anchored dentures may dramatically change your life. Your chewing ability will be similar to that of natural teeth and you will be able to eat hard foods again. How about a thick T-bone at your favorite Anchorage steakhouse? In addition to being able to enjoy your meal, you will avoid the embarrassment of having your dentures rattle around in your mouth in public.
Before you pay for another denture reline, ask your Anchorage cosmetic dentist about the possibility of dental implants. While tooth implants are a significant investment, the dental implant cost is very reasonable when you consider they can last a lifetime.
