Dental Implants Edmonton | The Best Solution For Poor Fitting Dentures
If you suffer from poor fitting dentures, then you should consider dental implants Edmonton to solve that problem. Many people don’t realize that dentures have a negative effect on the bone. As we chew food, the pressure that is applied through your teeth stimulates bone density. When somebody receives a set of dentures, their bite strength reduces to only 20%.
Because of this, the bone shrinks much faster causing dentures to fit poorly. They become loose and makes it much more difficult for the wearer to speak and eat foods. Many times it’s a struggle to keep them in your mouth with your cheeks and tongue. This can be a major hindrance to regular speech patterns and your ability to eat foods properly.
Dental implants Edmonton are a great choice to create a firm foundation for your dentures. Titanium screws are inserted into your jaw. After a healing period, locators are attached to your dentures which allow you to securely apply your dentures onto the implants.
