Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
Dr. Richard E. Aguila of Contemporary Implant Dentistry & Periodontics now uses modern dentistry to add implants to traditional dentures. He is aware of the difficulties that traditional dentures often produce. Sometimes the adhesive doesn't hold well and the denture slips. The gum that the denture rests on can begin to deteriorate, which causes the bite to be off and makes it hard to eat. The denture may click or pop, which can be annoying or embarrassing. A dental implant can support the denture and hold it firmly in the jaw so that these problems are no longer an issue.
It is estimated that 70 percent of all adults in America between the ages of 35 and 45 have lost at least one permanent tooth and that 25 percent of adults over the age of 75 have no permanent teeth left. Traditionally, when many teeth are missing, a patient has opted for either partial or full dentures. Considering all of the problems associated with the traditional method of keeping a denture in the mouth, adding implants to the dentures is a feasible solution.
With a dental implant supported denture, the implants are surgically installed in the jawbone and the titanium they are made of fuses with the bone, providing strength and stimulating bone growth. The top of the implant may have a ball and socket configuration or it may be attached to a bar, depending on the type of denture the patient prefers.
People who are tired of the slipping, noise, poor fit, and lack of chewing strength their current dentures provide them may be interested in the implants and the support they provide.
