Are Implants an Option for Denture Wearers?

Denture wearers often want to know if they can get rid of their dentures and get implants instead.  The problem is that many denture wearers have gum recession.  This a normal for those who have been wearing partial or complete dentures for many years.

Over time, dentures expose the gum tissues due to prolonged compression.  This can cause loss gum recession and jawbone loss. Together this results in loose fitting dentures.

Dental implants are an option for denture wearers.  While they can’t restore the lost bone, they can help prevent further bone loss by stabilizing the bones and gum tissue.

Going from Dentures to Implants

During your first visit with a Midtown dentist, your gums and jawbone will be access via radiographs and a CT scan to make sure you are a good dental implant candidate.

One thing to keep in mind is that depending on how much of your gums have receded, you may need to treat that issue with a gum graft before you can get dental implants.

  • Good General Health
  • Good Oral Health
  • Minimal Jawbone Loss
  • Healthy Gums

Find out if you are a good candidate by contacting Houston’s Top Dental Implant specialist Dr. Jonathan Penchas at  Gum recession affects the esthetic appearance of an implant, but the dental implants can cause further recession if it’s not corrected.

This is because if the dental implant’s titanium screw becomes visible, it can cause create a health issue in the gum tissue.  If this happens, you’ll not only lose more bone, but the implant will fail.

Fixing Receding Gums with a Gum Graft

Gum grafts or gingivial grafts can fix receding gums.  This is a surgical procedure where soft tissue is taken from the roof of your mouth and transplanted to the place where the gums have receded.

You can help reduce gum recession with good oral hygiene, not smoking and having regular dental checkups.

5 Advantages Dental Implants Have

There are number of advantages to dental Implants :

  • Dental implants are implanted directly into the jawbone so now more loose fitting dentures.
  • Dental implants function like natural teeth.
  • Dental implants are custom made to your mouth.
  • Dental implants are a permanent alternatives to dentures.
  • Dental implants stimulate the bone on mastication and avoid bone loss when compared to dentures.
