Implants Prevent Denture-Related Health Problems

tooth implants Katy

Implant-supported dentures are a major step forward in tooth replacement. If you’re not happy with your conventional dentures, implant dentures from at Crabtree Dental in Katy may be just what you’ve been looking for.

Problems with conventional dentures include:

  1. Dentures usually fit properly at first, but the mouth changes over time. Normal wear and tear take their toll. Eventually, the dentures will need to be relined or replaced.
  2. Ill-fitting dentures can aggravate gums and cause inflammation. Inflammation often leads to additional health conditions.
  3. Dentures can change a person’s bite which impacts the temporomandibular (jaw) joint. This, in turn, can lead to pain in the face, neck, and head.
  4. Dentures trap particles of food. This can result in gum disease. Partial dentures can increase the risk of decay in remaining teeth.
  5. Dentures can make food taste different, or mask the taste entirely. This can bring about inadequate nutrition.
  6. Some people with dentures start eating smaller meals which can lead to weight loss.
  7. Dentures can take the pleasure out of eating. This can influence emotional health.
  8. Inadequate calorie consumption lowers energy levels. This affects the ability to work, travel, and participate in hobbies and recreational activities.
  9. Dentures reduce chewing ability. Many denture wearers stop eating nuts, high-fiber foods, and raw vegetables. All of these are part of a healthy diet.
  10. Reduced chewing capacity can cause the denture wearer to swallow bigger chunks of food. This often leads to digestive problems.
  11. Dentures can interfere with speaking. When speaking ability is diminished, some individuals avoid social situations and are at a greater risk for depression.
  12. When the jaw no longer has tooth roots, it shrinks and recedes.
