Rockville, MD Dental Implants can Now Support Traditional Dentures for Improved Function through Dr. Steven N. Rice at Advanced Laser Gum Surgery- Institute of Washington
Date:8/16/2013

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) August 16, 2013

Dr. Steven N. Rice secures dentures by supporting them with dental implants. DC. patients annoyed with their dentures slipping and causing discomfort may be interested in learning more about getting them implant supported.

Tooth replacement is important for a number of reasons. There are cosmetic and health benefits to replacing missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth is important for maintaining healthy bone density. After a tooth is lost, the bone in the area will degenerate. Degeneration of the bone can alter the shape of the face and make the patient appear older. Missing teeth can affect how a person eats and speaks.

Dentures are one of the most common tooth replacement options for individuals who have lost many or all of their teeth. They resemble natural teeth, and rest on top of the gums. Some common problems that patients experience with this form of tooth replacement include the moving and sliding of the fixture in the mouth. The fixture may also make an embarrassing clicking noise.

Implant supported dentures may be a better option for eligible patients. Patients must have proper bone density in the jaw in order to receive this form of fixture. Typically, two to five titanium implants will be placed in the front of the jaw. The implants are made of titanium, which is a strong metal considered compatible with the human body. The natural-looking fixture will then snap onto the dental implants. This helps to eliminate issues like sliding and clicking.

Patients who are concerned about their missing teeth and seeking tooth replacement options should contact Dr. Rice for a consultation. Visit http://www.advancedgumsurgery.com for more information.
