When you visit a denture stabilization dentist, talk about what you should expect. Getting dentures is a big undertaking, and it involves many unique changes. You will experience an adjustment period, and you should be told that. Your new dentures might feel awkward for some time, which is normal.
Depending on your circumstances, you might choose from various options in dentures. Your dentist will explain the choices available to you. Removable dentures work well for countless dental patients in the Oviedo area. They could be the best option if you lose your teeth.
What Is Denture Stabilization?
Your dentist positions titanium screws in your jawbone, and they remain there. The screws serve as prosthetic roots, and they anchor your prosthetic teeth. This means that your dentures will stay in place in your mouth. They will no longer fall out unexpectedly and at inconvenient times.
To a considerable degree, denture stabilization counteracts the side effects of dentures. Because your dentures no longer slide around, they will not cause sores. You will no longer have such difficulty chewing and speaking. Your dentures will be more like natural teeth in every way.
Dentures and Side Effects:
- Soreness and Irritation
- Difficulty with Eating
- Challenges with Speaking
After having your implants placed, your dentures will be adjusted to attach to the implants.
A Solution to the Side Effects of Removable Dentures
You do not need to suffer from the side effects of dentures. A prosthodontist can provide you with a viable solution: denture stabilization. This process involves implants, which keep the dentures in place. This alternative to the traditional process is an ideal option for many patients.
Dentures and Their Side Effects
One of the top factors you should explore is the side effects. Wearing dentures comes with the chance of experiencing some common side effects. If you are prepared for these, you can manage them better. You can also undergo denture stabilization, which will greatly minimize the effects.
Soreness and Irritation
Soreness is of the most common side effects of wearing dentures. Because removable dentures do not always adhere correctly, they can cause friction. That friction can lead to a feeling of irritation in the mouth. You might even develop sores on or around the gums.
Difficulty with Eating
Chewing can be a challenge when you have dentures in your mouth. If your dentures are not firmly in place, they can become dislodged. The motion of chewing can easily cause your dentures to fall out. This can be frustrating, and it may also be embarrassing for you.
Challenges with Speaking
Speech can also be a challenge when you wear removable dentures. If the dentures shift around in your mouth, talking could be difficult. You might need to relearn how to say certain words more effectively. It is always better if you can keep the dentures positioned firmly.
Increased Bone and Tissue Loss
If you lose teeth, you are already experiencing significant bone loss. Did you know that you are also probably losing bone tissue elsewhere? People typically lose teeth due to advanced gum disease, known as periodontitis. Bone loss is one of the unfortunate effects of advanced gum disease.
When you wear removable dentures, you take them out at certain times. When you are not wearing your dentures, more bone loss can occur. You can also experience the loss of other tissue, like the gums. The gums recede when they do not come in contact with teeth.
