Dr. Stacey Blume is a periodontist practicing in Cincinnati, OH. Dr. Blume’s practice focuses on treating patients with periodontal disease and provides replacement of missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants may be used not only to replace individual teeth, but may be utilized to support dentures. Patients who have lost teeth due to injury or disease often seek dentures as a replacement. However, dentures have a few drawbacks. For one, they are uncomfortable. They can slip around in your mouth and can make unattractive noises when eating or speaking. There are also some health risks involved. Over time, the gums and jawbone will deteriorate due to a lack of stimulation. This changes the facial structure and alters the fit of your dentures. Your teeth affect your whole body. When they’re healthy, you’re healthier too. A missing tooth can affect your bite, speech and eating choices. As you rely more on your remaining teeth, you increase the chance they will wear out prematurely, or be damaged or lost. You may also experience headaches and/or jaw pain.
Dentures supported by implants, however, are a worthy alternative. A denture secured by dental implants will provide stimulation to the gums and the jawbone to prevent deterioration of the jawbone and a beautiful natural looking smile, while allowing your new teeth to function like natural teeth, helping to preserve your youthful appearance.
TeethXpress is a procedure that utilizes dental implants to secure a loose or uncomfortable denture. Because implants are integrated into your jaw, there is no slippage involved. With dentures supported by dental implants, you can eat and speak more clearly without any difficulty. Dental implants have provided support and stabilization for millions of denture users.
