Does Denture Quality Matter with Dental Implants?

Many people think that because we now have dental implants, denture quality no longer matters. Why does anyone need to worry about the quality of dentures when they can have dental implants? It’s important to remember that you will have dentures placed atop your dental implants, and the quality of those dentures definitely makes a difference.

Better Fitting Dentures Mean More Comfort

dreamstime_s_33131464Although you won’t have to worry about the fit of your dentures from the standpoint of securing them in your mouth, you will have to worry about how your dentures fit together to ensure a comfortable bite. If your dentures aren’t properly designed to fit your bite, they can cause sore jaw muscles, tooth clenching, neck pain, headaches, and more symptoms associated with an imbalanced bite.

FOY® Dentures are designed using neuromuscular dentistry, which means they are designed to fit your entire jaw system, including your jaw muscles, to ensure maximum comfort.

Better Fitting Dentures Eliminate Imbalanced Forces

Another potential problem of poorly fitting dentures is that they can lead to an uneven force in your bite. With regular dentures, you would feel this as a pinch point causing a sore spot on your gums. Although dental implants mean your dentures won’t be pinching your gums, the forces are still there. Just as excess force can lead to increased resorption under your dentures, it can lead to resorption around your dental implants, increasing the risk of implant failure.

Again, by eliminating uneven forces, FOY® Dentures can help you preserve your dental implants.

Better Fitting Dentures Rejuvenate Your Appearance

And, of course, there is the primary benefit of FOY® Dentures, the rejuvenating appearance of them. Just as your natural teeth were the foundation of your facial appearance, your dentures will be, too, and whether these dentures are on dental implants or not, they have to restore the proper proportion to your face if you are to achieve a more youthful appearance.

If you want to learn more about how the best dentures can improve your dental implant results, please contact a local FOY® Dentures dentist.
