If you aren’t satisfied with your dentures, find out how getting dental implants from your Fort Myers dentist could help.

Are you a current denture-wearer who isn’t particularly happy with your dental restoration? If so, we are sorry to hear this! While denturesdental implants will never be as good as natural teeth we do know how upsetting that realization can be. Fortunately, our Fort Myers, FL implant dentist, Dr. Jay Shartzer, has a wonderful solution for keeping your dentures firmly in place so you can enjoy your favorites foods and feel confident speaking to those around you.

While regular dentures rest on the gums, which make them more liable to shift around in your mouth, implant-supported dentures stay put. Implants are often recommended for patients who wear dentures on their lower jaw, since these dentures are often more unstable than ones worn on the upper jaw. However, you can still choose to get dental implants to support dentures on the upper jaw, too.

Besides the fact that the implants are stable parts of the jawbone that won’t let your dentures move around while eating or talking, which means you can confidently enjoy all your favorite foods without worrying about your dentures moving around, you’ll also enjoy the fact that implants prevent bone loss.

Regular denture wearers often have to come in for routine adjustments and even denture replacements because the jawbone will continue to lose density and cause changes to the structure of your face. However, implants prevent these changes from happening, which means you won’t need to come in for denture adjustments or replacements as often.
