Losing your teeth is a troubling issue that will affect you forever.
The problem affects you every time you eat or smile. Your permanent teeth are meant to last forever, so when they are gone, you have some problems address. The most common way to treat tooth loss is with removable dentures.
At Nashua Family Dentistry, we are offering more than one solutions for replacing missing teeth. Dentures have evolved over the years. They are more lifelike than ever before, but functionality continues to be a problem. We often hear from patients with dentures who leave their teeth out until they absolutely need them. That’s a problem because you want to have replacement teeth you can rely on.
Why People Have Problems With Dentures
Dentures are a great way to aesthetically fill in the gaps of missing teeth. Our dentures look great, but stability is always an issue with removable dentures. This is a problem because when the teeth are lost, the jawbone will recede. Jawbone recession can often happen quickly after the teeth are lost. If you have teeth remaining in the mouth, jawbone recession can cause those other healthy teeth in the mouth shift around. If you have no remaining teeth, jawbone recession will make it difficult to find a good fit for the denture.
People with dentures are well acquainted with the limitations. Dentures can affect the way you speak, and there are many foods you’ll have to avoid. Foods like pizza, nuts, crunchy fruits and vegetable, etc. are generally off the menu. All of these problems can be frustrating, and to top it off, you’ll often need adhesive to keep the dentures in the mouth.
There is a way to get stability back in your mouth: dental implants.
Keep Your Teeth in Your Mouth
Dental implants are one of the major advanced treatments we offer at Nashua Family Dentistry. It starts with our training and technology. We jumped head first into offering dental implants because we saw the advantages it had with our patients. Dental implants can restore your mouth nearly back to its original state. Simply put, dental implants address every denture you ever hard. Dental implants:
- Stabilize the teeth
- Less effect on speech
- Let you eat whatever you want
- Never get cavities
- Can last a lifetime
Dental implants are so successful because they merged with the jawbone and stop jawbone recession. We use titanium implants. Titanium is a substance that is compatible to your body. Once the implant has healed, you can restore the implants with crowns, bridges, or dentures. For patients without teeth, we are offering a system known as full-arch hybrid restorations. These teeth are placed on implants, and the upper arch leaves the palate open, allowing you to experience more tastes and hot and cold sensations.
Though dental implant placement is oral surgery, don’t worry! For one, you’re a candidate for dental implants if you’re in good health and have enough jawbone to support the implant. Secondly, we place implants with a 98 percent success rate.
