Denture Implants are Only One Option

Denture implants are designed to help keep your false teeth secured properly in your mouth. If you don’t have dentures but are facing the loss of several or all of your teeth, you may only need to be fitted for false teeth. You might not need to endure the denture implants procedure at all because many people get by fine without them. If you do find you need them, then it’s far better to get them than to suffer with ill-fitting dentures.

If there is a chance that you can save your teeth with some deep cleaning and root planing, choose that option. Even if you can save a few of your regular teeth, you can avoid things like a denture implant procedure. Partial plates, which are partial sets of false teeth, will hook to your existing natural teeth and stay in place quite well. This will help you avoid oral surgery and implants of any kind.

If your dentist has told you you’re at risk of losing your teeth because of advanced gingivitis or periodontitis, getting into a good routine of taking care of your teeth and having them professionally cleaned regularly. Floss after every meal and especially before bed, and brush your teeth thoroughly at least twice a day. Flossing alone can help prevent the disease that causes you to lose your teeth. It only takes a couple of minutes a day to keep yourself from having to have denture implants put in and having to wear false teeth.

The bits of food and plaque that you don’t wipe away with a flimsy little piece of floss will later have to be chipped off with a tool. If this isn’t done, that tartar will irritate your gums and cause them to recede which will also cause your jawbone to start to absorb back into your body. This means that your teeth have less to anchor into and they’ll often have to be extracted. But you can avoid denture implants and false teeth altogether if you start taking proper care of your teeth now.
