I’ve been using denture adhesive for many years to hold my teeth in place. Could dental implants eliminate the inconvenience of using adhesives?
A common complaint among denture wearers is the mess and inconvenience of always having to apply adhesives to secure their dentures in place, especially when speaking, laughing, or eating a meal. What a nuisance – you’re enjoying dinner at a nice restaurant with friends, and suddenly you have to excuse yourself from the table to go to the rest room because your dentures won't stay in. Not the way you wanted your evening to go!
Laughing, coughing, and laughing can also be troublesome for people who rely on adhesives to hold their teeth in place. You may find it funny to see another person’s denture fall out, but we can assure you it’s not funny when it’s you who has to deal with these embarrassing situations on a daily basis. Denture wearers with problems such as these are not alone. Nearly 30 million people in the US are without teeth and approximately 29% of those in this group are limited to chewing only soft foods.
If loose or ill-fitting dentures are preventing you from enjoying life, the addition of dental implants is something you should consider. We can use dental implants to fasten onto your dentures to hold them in place. Of course, you also have the option of doing away with dentures altogether and just going with dental implants.
