Not everything was better back in the good old days. Take dentures, for instance. They’ve been around for generations, and have improved the lives of countless Farmington NM people – but they had a lot of shortcomings.
Traditional dentures can impede many important oral functions: chewing, tasting, swallowing, talking, and smiling. Some people have stopped attending social activities or eating their favorite foods, because of loose, ill-fitting dentures.
Well, there is good news for Farmington residents with missing teeth: dentures have evolved!
Implant-anchored or implant-supported dentures are far superior to old-style dentures. The difference is night and day.
Implant anchored dentures come in two types: removable and permanent. No adhesive is needed for either system. With the permanent dentures, screw retentions are anchored in the jaw to serve as attachment points. They’re very stable, and are usually less costly than replacing each missing tooth with an implant.
Removable implant anchored dentures have a locator attachment that allows the wearer to snap the appliance in place. Some patients prefer this type because they can remove them at night for cleaning.
