How Dental Implants Are Changing Dentures

How Dental Implants are Changing Dentures in Salt Lake City

If you wear dentures, you know that they are not an ideal solution for missing teeth. They can slip, cause gum irritation, bone loss, and leave you with an inability to taste food due to a covered palate. The good news? Implant-supported dentures from The Sugar House Dentist offer a better solution.

If you currently wear traditional dentures and are not happy with them, implant anchored dentures may dramatically change your life. Your chewing ability will be near to that of natural teeth and you will be able to eat hard foods again.

What makes them such an improvement is in the name, “implant.” A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed into the patient’s jaw. It fuses with the bone to provide a solid support for replacement teeth.

It takes multiple implants, usually four, to support a full dental arch. We use mini-implants. In addition to supporting dentures, they help to prevent bone recession.
