Dentures have been used for years and they have served a great purpose but they have also come with a myriad of problems for that same time. Loose fit, talking problems, and eating is a whole issue in and of itself. The good news is that many of these problems can now be avoided. Dental implants have been used to anchor dentures for years now and implant dentists experience great success. Not everyone is a candidate though and this list can help you know if you might qualify for implant supported dentures:
*Jawbone Support: The jawbone must be substantial and strong enough to support the dental implant.
*Good Dental Hygiene: Past cases show that patients who regularly floss, brush, and take good care of their teeth have higher success rates with their dental implants.
*Dentures: Patients looking for an alternative to dentures or wanting to replace most or all of their teeth are excellent implant dentistry candidates.
*Overall Health: Good overall health contributes to implant dentistry success.
If you feel like you aren’t a candidate, don’t give up hope! Many times there are procedures that can be done to fix issues along the way. All you need to do is get consultation with Dr. Acton, your local implant dentist. Call today if you are sick of spaces or dentures.
