While typical dentures shift and may require the use of denture adhesives to keep them in place, implant-supported dentures fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures, such as gum sores, and difficulty speaking and chewing.
A proper fitting denture is very important. A good fit ensures that your dentures will allow you to retain much of your mouth’s function, which is important for maintaining natural muscle tone in your face and jaw. Dentures will keep you looking and feeling healthy. A natural-looking smile, (which, may be even nicer than your original smile), and the best possible fit are two of the primary goals that your doctor will achieve if you need dentures.
You will be pleased with how your new partial denture will restore the gaps you have in your smile from missing teeth—even gaps that cannot be corrected by a bridge. Your partial denture will be removable and will be made from a synthetic material supported by lightweight metal that mimics both your gum tissue and your teeth, giving you a beautiful new smile. The partial denture will preserve the integrity of your existing teeth by preventing them from shifting and tilting in towards the gaps created by your missing teeth.
