How Dental Implants Can Improve Your Dentures

Posted on December 29th, 2011 by

For many years, the only option for dental patients with missing teeth was dentures or bridges. Today, dental implants enable cosmetic dentists to restore the health and functionality of the patient’s teeth with long-lasting, natural-looking results. Ask your dentist how dental implants and partial dentures can greatly improve the use of dentures or eliminate the need for dentures entirely.

  • Conventional Dentures

Conventional dentures are removable and are supported by the gum tissue only. Without the aid of implants, patients often suffer from poor digestion due to difficulty chewing and swallowing food. There is also potential for soreness of the gums, infection, and bone loss. Traditional denture wearers often complain of social limitations due to the dentures’ lack of stability and fit.

  • Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are often used when the patient is missing several teeth. A partial denture is similar to a bridge, using natural teeth to support the denture. Implants can also be used to anchor the partial denture if there are not enough existing teeth to support the appliance. Many cosmetic dentists use Valplast, a lightweight and virtually unbreakable denture that will not slip or crack like conventional dentures. Implant-assisted partial dentures will greatly improve a patient’s ability to eat and speak.

  • Dental Implants

Whether missing one or many teeth, dental implantsare often the best option. A dental implant uses a titanium artificial tooth root which is implanted and integrated with the bone. A customized and natural-looking crown is placed on top of the root to fully restore chewing and speaking ability. Unlike conventional treatments, dental implants direct chewing forces to the jaw, preventing loss of bone. Not only will your jaw be stronger with implants, but you will also be able to enjoy a full and healthy diet.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
