Many adults will have lost one or more teeth, but some will be completely edentulous (without any natural teeth). The most usual way to replace an entire arch of teeth used to be through having a full denture. Full dentures are very affordable, and a well-constructed full denture can help to support the cheeks and lips, creating a natural looking appearance. Even so, a lot of people find them awkward to wear, and they will restrict the types of foods that can be enjoyed.
Wearing a full or complete denture may go well for the first few years, but issues can begin to arise as the denture will gradually fit less well. This is due to the resorption of the jawbone that occurs naturally after all the tooth roots have been removed. If you wear a lower denture then you’ll notice this more as the shape of a lower denture give very little natural retention, instead relying on the bony ridge that used to support the teeth to hold it in place. While denture adhesives offer a temporary, and often messy and expensive short-term solution, wouldn’t you rather find out about something that will hold them firmly in position, permanently?
This is where your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater can help, and this treatment could well be more affordable than you think. A lower denture could be held in place with just four dental implants, and you might be able to retain an upper denture with as few as six. Both options offer considerable advantages. Retaining a lower denture in this way will hold it securely in position without the need to use adhesives, and without the worry that it will become loose at awkward moments.
Securing an upper denture with dental implants in Bayswater will suddenly make food taste much more appealing. This is because the upper palate has thousands of taste buds that are normally covered up by acrylic. Your new implant retained denture can be constructed by your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater in a horseshoe shape exposing all these taste buds. Having dentures that don’t move and slip around will also enable you to eat a wider variety of foods. This could help to improve nutrition, and eating a decent diet can help to improve general health.
The fact that only a few dental implants will need to be placed by your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater helps to bring treatment within the reach of more people. The benefits of having an implant retained denture can be huge, so if you are fed up with your dentures this option is definitely worthy of a look. In addition, Hyde Park Dental Clinic offers 0% finance payment plans, helping you to comfortably spread the cost of treatment.
Dental implants are ideal for a lot of people, but the only way to find out if they are right for you is to book an appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater. The great thing about implant retained dentures is that the dental implants can often be placed in such as to make the most of available bone. Some patients chose to do away with dentures altogether, and to have a dental bridge fitted that is non-removable. This may require a few more implants, but is another option.
