Why You Should Throw Away Old Dentures
There is nothing quite worse than old, bad dentures. Dentures that don’t fit. Dentures that look “fake.” Dentures that make it nearly impossible to eat the food you love.

How Our Dentures Are So Different

Removable dentures rest on the gums and rely on fit — and suction for upper dentures — to stay in the mouth and function. Crafting the perfect dentures all starts with the material. We use soft, malleable materials that fit nicely and will not irritate your gums and soft tissue. Bad dentures often cause sores or tenderness in the gums and make it nearly impossible to eat the food you love. Some patients have grown so weary of the irritate that they often don’t even wear their dentures.

A good denture should have the following: Great fit, Great look, and Great Durability.

Comfortable Partial Dentures

For decades, all partial dentures seemed to be the same. The new teeth were fastened by metal in the mouth. The metal would sometimes show whenever you smiled, or worse, the metal irritated the mouth. Our office is using a specific denture know as the Valplast Flexible Partial Denture. These denture use no metal clasps and blends in perfectly with your natural teeth and gum tissue. These dentures are also extremely flexible and durable, and we can add teeth to the denture over time.

Stabilize Dentures With Dental Implants

While dentures have become more lifelike and durable than ever before. But the fact is that removable dentures can’t match the power of natural teeth. Some studies estimate that a person loses more than 50 percent of their biting force with removable dentures. That’s a problem because it becomes difficult you to eat the food you love. People with dentures often have trouble eating food like steak, pizza, nuts, vegetables, and many fruits. These foods are hard to eat because the dentures may slide around in the mouth.

There is one sure way to stabilize your dentures and eat the food you love again: dental implants. Dental implants have revolutionized the way we treat missing teeth. We can place dental implant for patients with single missing teeth or those who want to stabilize their dentures.

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the strongest tooth replacement option used in dentistry. The implants are made from titanium, which is biocompatible and naturally fuses to the jawbone. The implant literally becomes part of the jawbone and can be restored with a single crown or denture. This is significant because when the teeth are lost, the jawbone will begin to recede. Dental implants will preserve the jawbone and help you maintain a more youthful appearance.

The best part is that we’ve found that dental implants can nearly match the power of natural teeth.
