Denture implant

There is saying that “use gum if you have no teeth”. Will it be possible to eat meal without teeth?
There are some elders who can chew food without teeth and live healthy life. But when we compare elders with and without teeth, elders without teeth have more bended back and aging process is faster than those with teeth. This means loss of teeth can cause malfunction of digestive system due to decrease of efficiency which can lead to many other diseases, damage in jaw joint, curvature of the spine, severe muscle sore.
Also, if this condition (without teeth) continues for a long time, muscles around mouth will shrink or change its form which will eventually change the face shape and outline. It is difficult to get back to person’s original face shape. Recently, implant operation appeared. This looks like natural teeth. But the disadvantage of implant is high cost.
So, denture supported by implants is used often where some implants are used to maintain and settle denture.
But there are some cases where patient cannot have denture implant depending on patient’s health condition, oral care condition and economical status.

Complete denture

  denture supported by gum when there’s no teeth left.

Portion denture

  denture supported by gum and maintained by hooking on remaining teeth.

Denture implant is directed at :

person who has good bone condition but not financially stable

person who has physical difficulty in transplanting wide range of bone or implant

Worries about denture

In case of portion denture, if remaining teeth cannot be used anymore, there is a chance of redoing the whole denture.
When we chew food, the force goes to the gum. This may lower gum height. And denture teeth are weaker than natural teeth, it will wear out. So it is advised to do regular check up once every 1 or 2 years.

Follow –up care after denture is made

It is advised to wash the denture after meal and wash the denture with cleaner using tooth brush mildly. Denture can wear out easily if you use tooth paste to clean it. Since toothpaste has abrasive. So it is better to use denture cleaner. Form of denture will change when you sterilize it in hot water. Do not sterilize denture in hot water.

Denture implant FAQ

1. Can I eat food well when I put in my denture?
Denture recovers function of molar teeth. You can eat all the foods that natural teeth can chew. Only it takes more time to chew food because the denture cannot function as natural teeth. Function of front denture teeth is inferior to natural teeth. Eating noodles is not a problem but you cannot bite fruits or bite off tough food.

2. Will the denture shed when I cough, speaking loudly or sing?
Well-made denture, portion and complete denture do not shed. If the denture that you are using right now is causing that kind of problem, it means the denture doesn’t fit perfectly or has problem. You need to have it fixed or remake it.
If your financial condition permits, do 2 to 4 implants in upper and lower gum that is supported and maintained by supported denture. You can recover the function almost like natural teeth.

3. Will the face look unnatural after putting denture?
There is a step where we check if the denture fits well with the face. We make sure that patient is satisfied with his/her face with denture. If the denture is well made, not only the patient but patient’s guardian says that patient’s appearance with healthy teeth reappeared.
There is a saying that Names and natures do often agree. As well as the well made denture’s function is much better. If your face looks unnatural, that means the denture is not perfectly made for you.
