Mouth ulcers don’t tend to cause any long-term problems, but they can be very painful. If you’re prone to ulcers, and you wear dentures, denture stabilisation may be an option worth looking into.
Many people wear dentures without any issues; however, as time has gone by, treatments have become more advanced, and you may be considering an upgrade to your traditional denture. Dentures are sets of prosthetic teeth. Today, they are sleeker, and more natural looking than ever before, but they’re not the same as having your natural teeth. Even with the newest dentures, you may experience irritation and soreness caused by poor-fitting dentures and anxiety related to the denture coming loose or slipping when you’re eating or speaking.
If you have concerns about your denture, denture stabilisation may be the solution. Denture stabilisation involves the use of dental implants. Implants, which are designed to replace the missing tooth root, secure the denture, holding it in place. With an implant, you get the same level of stability as a natural tooth, so you don’t have to worry about your denture coming loose, your jawbone tissue disintegrating or your gums becoming irritated.
With implant-supported dentures, you can also enjoy increased bite power, so no foods are off-limits.
In many cases, we are able to fit the implants and dentures on the same day. Call us now to find out more and see if you are a good match for denture stabilisation treatment.
