Loose Or Painful Dentures - Ft. Worth, TX
Struggling with Loose Dentures?
How Jawbone Loss Affects Your Smile
If your denture has become increasingly loose and uncomfortable in your mouth, jawbone loss is most likely the culprit. Your jawbone relies on teeth to remain strong and healthy, so if you’ve been missing an entire arch of teeth for some time, your bone has been shrinking in size and density during that time, too. You’re experiencing painful, loose dentures in Fort Worth, TX because they were designed to fit the original contours of your jawbone, but not the size and shape it is now after resorbing. Unfortunately, even if you reline your denture, this resorption process will continue to happen without the presence of natural teeth. Thankfully there is a way to both halt this resorption and provide a more secure, functional smile with dental implants!
How Dental Implants Help
Secure, Functional, Attractive
Dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement, and it’s because they mimic the function of healthy tooth roots. They’ll provide stimulation to your jawbone to keep it from resorbing any further while providing a base onto which we can snap your denture or fix a bridge of natural-looking teeth. If you choose implant supported dentures, we’ll surgically place two or more dental implants into your jawbone. Your denture will be either ball- or bar-retained, with the option to have it easily snap in and out for daily cleaning. This solution improves your denture’s stability so you can eat more foods. Full mouth dental implants, however, are the ultimate in full arch tooth replacement. They consist of a custom-designed bridge of life-like, strong acrylic teeth permanently fixed to four or more dental implants and a titanium bar. This solution restores over 98% of your dental function, so you can improve what you eat, your health, and your quality of life!
