If you’ve lost many or even most of your teeth, you may figure you’ll have to get used to denture adhesive and soaking your replacement teeth in a glass. Not so! Implant dentures are an alternative to conventional dentures – and one that works well for many people.

In the meantime, check out five reasons you’ll want to considering replacing teeth with dental implant dentures:
- More Confidence – Regular dentures sit on top of your gums, where suction (often supplemented with adhesive) keeps them in place. Unfortunately, they can still slip out of place – and often do so at embarrassing moments like meals with friends or even out on a date. Dentures affixed to implants won’t slip or shift. You can confidently order what you want off the menu and not cover your hand when you laugh.
- Enhanced Comfort – When dentures shift and move in your mouth, it can create uncomfortable friction that results in sore spots. You’ll avoid this with implant dentures.
- Simple Maintenance – You can forget about denture adhesive and special cleaning solutions with dental implant dentures. Depending on the type of replacement teeth you receive, cleaning may be as easy as brushing and flossing like you always have. Plus, implants will maintain your dentures’ snug fit so you won’t need relining procedures.
- Avoidance of Bone Loss – Once embedded in your jaw, dental implants function like natural tooth roots. This helps you avoid the bone loss that occurs with missing teeth. Implants give the bone in your jaw the stimulation it needs to remain strong. That means your face will look fuller, and you’ll have a more youthful appearance.
- Better for Your Overall Health – Implant dentures give you the ability to eat virtually any food, including nutritious options like crunchy apples, carrot sticks, and similar nutritious choices. With conventional dentures, those kinds of food are tough to chew. So many dentures wearers just avoid them. Improved chewing ability also improves your digestion.
