If you have a set of traditional dentures, then you have likely noticed that they lack the natural feel of your natural teeth. This is most noticeable when biting off, chewing, and grinding hard foods. This is often from a combination of factors.
The material traditional dentures are created from typically lacks the strength of natural teeth. At the same time, the softness of your underlying gums against the base of the dentures can sometimes feel uncomfortable when chewing tough and crunchy foods.
As time goes on oral atrophy might also develop in the underlying bone structure of your mouth. This could cause your traditional dentures to feel loose in your mouth. As this occurs you will likely need to apply copious amounts of denture adhesive just to keep your dentures held in place.
To address these concerns BiteLock™ dental implants can provide you with teeth-in-a-day that restores 95% of your bite strength.
The process involves inserting a series of titanium dental implants into your existing jaw structure. We can then develop locking hardware to secure a new durable set of replacement teeth. Once this is done it will replicate the strength and original feel of your natural teeth.
If you are unhappy with your traditional dentures, you should contact DFW Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery to make an appointment with Dr. Pedro Franco, Dr. Howard Price, or Dr. Drew Havard. Our team is professionally trained to assist you with your BiteLock needs!
