If you want to restore your smile due to extensive tooth loss, you have a decision to make. Should you choose ordinary dentures or go with state-of-the-art implant dentures, like those at David Rice DDS in Elgin IL?
One of the biggest disadvantages to ordinary dentures is a greatly reduced ability to bite and chew food. The reason for this is that they rest on top of the gums. Implant dentures are secured directly to the jaw.
In fact, most people who switch from traditional to implant-supported overdentures say their ability to bite, chew, and taste is greatly improved. Most wearers also say that implant-supported dentures are a lot more comfortable.
In case you haven’t heard, dental implants are metal posts that are placed in the jaw, where they fuse with the bone. Multiple implants can anchor a full dental arch. They also help to preserve bone mass, because by chewing they stimulate the bone enough to prevent bone recession.
