Dentures have stood the test of time and are still in wide use for tooth replacement today. While they offer generally acceptable performance, they do have their downsides. If you’re already wearing dentures you may know these all too well. Dentures stay in place with suction or adhesive pastes. Through jawbone recession and wear they can come loose—often at the worst times. You may be eating or speaking with a friend and the dentures suddenly slip, embarrassing you. Their instability can also cause painful friction against your gums. If these concern you, our team at Grand Valley Dentures and Implant encourages you to consider options that put an end to loose dentures in Grand Junction and Montrose, CO.
LIFE WITHOUT LOOSE DENTURES
Carefree meals, conversations, laughter, and smiles
True peace of mind
A greater selection of food choices
No denture-related gum irritation
No pastes required
There are multiple paths to a secure smile in Grand Junction and Montrose, CO, and they have one element in common: dental implants. Implant supported dentures combine some features of dentures and dental implants in a single dental appliance. With this solution you have dental implants inserted into your jaw and then a full-arch denture attached to it. The implants stop your denture from shifting during meals and other daily activities, enable you to eat a wider, more satisfying variety of foods, and prevent the bone loss that can happen with traditional dentures due to lack of a root structure.
The next option is full mouth or full arch dental implants. This solution is widely considered to be the best overall choice for tooth replacement today. Created to last many years, with regular maintenance may provide up to a lifetime of dependable function and lifelike beauty. Anchored firmly in your jaw, dental implants are strong enough to allow you to eat all your favorite foods with confidence—hard, chewy, and crunchy foods. Dental implants don’t develop decay or infection and their restorations won’t stain. They can truly change your life!
