Modern Dentures Let You Live Again

  • March 1, 2017

When adult tooth loss strikes, it will be the end of the world as you know it. For one thing, without all of your teeth you will find yourself eating a lot more soft foods and a lot less of the foods you love. That won’t be very satisfying, and it won’t do much for your health, either. But, fortunately, our Plainville, CT dentist’s office has some good news for you: Dr. Peltzer’s modern-style denture solutions will help you to chew fiber-rich foods. As such, they will also help you improve your overall well-being and quality of life.

Keep reading to hear all about how dentures have changed for the better, and then be sure to get in touch with our team to schedule your restorative dentistry consultation at Gentle Dental Care!

Dental Implants Can Now Be Used To Stabilize Your Dentures

Sure, wearing dentures used to be slippery affair, and odds are good that you saw them pop right out of your grandma’s or grandpa’s mouth at the worst possible moment. However, we can tell you that times have changed for the better at the dentist’s office. We can now set you up with implant-retained dentures that are guaranteed to stay put.

These work like regular dentures in that they replace all of your natural teeth. That said, implants give these dentures the extra support and security they need to be more comfortable and realistic. You see, a dental implant is surgically inserted into your mouth and allowed to fuse with your jawbone, providing a permanent fix.

You won’t have to worry about any movements or applying those foul-tasting adhesives every day. Fair warning: there is a minor surgery involved but it will be over fast. Plus, we will do everything in our power to help you relax while you are here. Dr. Peltzer is the one dentist in Plainville you can trust to get the job done in a gentle manner.

So, what are your options for combining dental implants and dentures? There are essentially two ways to go with this.

Bar-Retained Dentures

We like to set the bar high around here by making dentures a snap! All kidding aside, by using the implants placed in your jaw, we’ll attach a bar that contains a small ridge. By modifying your dentures to include several clasps, you’ll be able to snap your dentures firmly in place! Doesn’t that sound nice?

Ball-Retained Dentures

When we are through with you, you’ll have a ball, we promise. True story! That’s because we’ll restore your implants with a series of metal balls, and your dentures will be modified to contain sockets. You’ll simply pop your dentures in place each day and experience a great new stability in your smile that you didn’t know was attainable. Wouldn’t that be an improvement?

Take Back Your Life Today!

The whole point of today’s post was to make you aware that life can be better, even if you are missing teeth. If you are you currently experiencing difficulty chewing or talking due to the loss or damage of teeth, then Dr. Peltzer can get you smiling again with one of our great restorative dentistry solutions.
