Do you have a row of missing teeth that needs replacing? If so, then you might consider implant dentures. They’ll provide more effective and long-lasting support for your jawbone (or any remaining teeth) compared to traditional ones. But how do they match with the adjustment period? Read on to learn four ways implant dentures are easier to get used to!

#1: Fewer Restrictions When Eating

Eating your everyday meals can be challenging with traditional dentures. Certain foods can be more difficult to chew, or your restorations can potentially slip off if too much pressure is applied. However, implant dentures are fastened to metal posts embedded in your jawbone. This means you can comfortably enjoy nearly all of your favorite foods without worrying about your new teeth moving out of place.

#2: Talking Feels Natural

Many patients find speaking clearly to be one of the hardest aspects of wearing traditional dentures. This can make you feel self-conscious about your speech while learning to pronounce words and phrases again. With implant dentures, you likely won’t skip a beat when conversing. They’ll provide stability like permanent teeth, meaning you won’t have to learn how to move your mouth with them on.

#3: Cleaning Them Is Simpler

Traditional dentures will need to be removed before bed to be brushed and soaked overnight. While the cleaning process isn’t difficult, some patients may feel mild soreness in their gums when taking off their restorations. Since implant dentures are anchored by the titanium posts, you won’t feel discomfort when removing them. This will make your cleaning routine much more comfortable in the long run.

#4: You Can Enjoy Them Immediately

Once your dental implants are successfully bonded to your jawbone and you receive your new dentures, you’ll be able to enjoy them right after leaving the dental office. Not only can you eat and speak like with normal teeth, but you’ll have a fully restored smile again! They’ll effectively prevent any facial changes or further tooth loss, and you can show off your new pearly whites for a lifetime.

Implant dentures have little to no adjustment time, offering permanent benefits for your dental health. Be sure to maintain good oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly to keep them in optimal condition!
