Based on what we have seen with our Calgary denture clients, the short answer to this question is yes.

Implant supported dentures can be a significant investment. These sophisticated dentures typically cost more up front and require multiple procedures to install.

Yet the benefits of denture implants can be revolutionary.

Patients experiencing major tooth loss often face many tough challenges in their daily routine, making quality denture implants a life-changing solution.

The challenges of missing teeth

Life can be difficult with missing teeth, including unique challenges that span many areas of everyday life, from eating and talking to self-confidence and general health.

Patients with missing teeth often experience:

  1. Difficulty eating: When many teeth are missing, it is especially difficult for patients to fully chew and digest solid foods. Over time, this difficulty in eating can lead to general health problems as individuals are not able to get the proper nutrition they need.
  2. Muffled speech: Teeth are a vital component of speech, so patients with missing teeth may notice difficulty pronouncing words clearly. For patients with conventional dentures that do not fit securely, there can also be issues with the dentures slipping out of place as they try to speak.
  3. Loss of facial tone: Teeth form a natural “frame” to help give your face shape and tone. In situations where numerous teeth are missing, the jaw line can soften, compromising the overall look and function of a patient’s mouth and jaw.
  4. Deteriorating jaw bone density: Once teeth are missing, they no longer serve as placeholders to maintain the right bone density in the jaw. This means that a patient’s jaw bone can actually deteriorate over time, creating more serious issues with bone health in the future.
  5. Decreased self-confidence: All of these various challenges can add up to diminished self-esteem for patients dealing with missing teeth. It can be hard to feel normal when basic activities like eating or speaking are a challenge. Decreased self-confidence is one of the most serious long-term impacts of missing teeth, making effective denture solutions all the more important to a patient’s overall quality of life.

How can denture implants help?

Missing teeth can present a host of problems, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Denture implants can be one effective solution to help restore dental health.

In particular, implant supported dentures can help:

  • Enable a full return to normal activities like eating, talking, and smiling
  • Replace missing teeth with a natural-looking, custom alternative
  • Provide a secure denture placement, especially for patients who have had trouble with fitting traditional dentures
  • Offer a durable, long-lasting denture solution that requires minimal upkeep
  • Support bone health by mimicking the role of a natural tooth and tooth root in the jaw

If you or a loved one is struggling with the challenges of missing teeth, there’s no need to continue to suffer. Denture solutions like implant supported dentures can make a significant improvement to a patient’s quality of life.
