What if I don’t have lower teeth?
Ball-retained dentures are the solution for the lower teeth. The two lower implants are the anchor for the denture. The denture is attached to implants and allows chewing and speaking without slipping. The denture is also more comfortable.
It is the ideal solution for you if you want a fixed denture. But remember that the maintenance of the implants and the denture are very important. Adjustments are necessary. Hygiene is essential. So keep the denture clean, free of food particles and especially without hard foods, such as seeds, because they cause discomfort in the gums.
What is the solution to the lack of upper teeth?
There are several solutions to the lack of upper teeth. Four to six or more implants are used to screw the dentures. The screws attach the denture to the titanium implant, keeping it stable in the mouth. They are very beautiful and natural. You cannot remove it from your mouth every day. However, maintenance consultations are very important to ensure the hygiene of your denture. The dentist regularly removes the denture from your mouth for cleaning.
What are the benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are similar to natural teeth. Implant retained dentures bring back your smile and the possibility of eating the foods you like best. Therefore, you become more confident and your quality of life is improved.
Due to their attachments, they are anchored firmly in the bone, remaining stable. They feel as if they were your own teeth, when talking, smiling and chewing.
Implant-supported dentures eliminate problems with speech and insecurity. So they are an excellent solution for those who don’t have teeth.
