Say goodbye to dentures with dental implants in Melbourne
If you’ve been wearing dentures for a while, you’ll know that as a tooth replacement solution, they have their drawbacks. As a quick and cost-effective way to get a whole set of teeth replaced, they are great. But, over time, the issues creep in.
First of all, no matter how well fitted your dentures are, they will become loose. This is because they rely on the gums for suction, and gums without natural teeth shrink. So, no matter how well you look after your dentures, and maintain your gums, you are going to need a new set at some point, and your gums are going to recede.
Also, you can no longer eat what you want. Hard, crunchy and chewy foods are off the menu, and soft food is in. This is difficult enough for your taste buds, but it’s also not great in terms of nutrition. Crunchy fruit and vegetables and chewy nuts give you essential vitamins, minerals and protein you need to stay healthy, and chewing also prepares the digestive system to work. With only 25% of the chewing power of natural teeth, with dentures you are missing out on all this.
And then there’s the social aspect: dentures can make saying certain sounds difficult and may even slip out or slide around in the mouth. A bit embarrassing to say the least.
If you’ve experienced any or all of these issues, you’ll be pleased to hear that there is another way. At High Dental Implants Melbourne, we offer denture stabilisation. This is where our implant dentist fixes your set of dentures onto 4-6 dental implants in Melbourne per arch, using a technique known as All-on-4.
All the denture drawbacks are taken care of with dental implants in Melbourne, because they so effectively mimic natural teeth. They are fixed in place, so no sliding around, falling out or becoming loose, speech isn’t affected, and your diet is your own, as full chewing power is restored. Your gums are held in place and dental implants are also long-lasting: 15 years or more with diligent maintenance.
