Dental Implants Anchor Dentures Local MDTV Dental Implants Expert Dentist, Joseph Gendler DDS, Explains How To Stop Dentures From Slipping With Dental Implants. Minneapolis / Hopkins Area Denture Wearers Need Not Suffer Any Longer. Dental Implants Offer Much Needed Relief to Denture Wearers in the Minneapolis / Hopkins Communities.
Anyone with regular dentures knows that eating a steak or biting into an apple is always risky because the dentures in the jaw may slip and slide as they lose their attachment to the gums.
The solution to this, explains Minneapolis / Hopkins dentist Joseph Gendler DDS, is getting the denture attached to implants in the jaw. Implant-supported dentures lock the denture in place, providing people peace of mind that their dentures will not slip when eating or speaking in public.
An implant-supported denture is a type of denture that is supported by and attached to dental implants, whereas a regular denture rests on the gums and tends to be less stable in the mouth.
The dental implants are placed into the jaw and bond to the jawbone forming an anchor. When a person has enough bone in the jaw to support dental implants, an implant-supported denture is ideal. This sort of denture has special attachments that snap onto the dental implants, allowing the denture to feel stable and secure.
Patients say the implant-supported dentures make their life more pleasurable, allowing them to even eat caramel at a party without having to worry about the dentures sticking together.
