With natural teeth, the bone holds the roots in place. When we lose our teeth, the bone shrinks because it doesn’t have to hold the roots any more. The more the bone shrinks, the less likely a denture will fit and work the way you hope. When implants are placed in the bone, the bone has a new job. To hold the implants acting like roots so the bone doesn’t shrink as much. Now you can have a denture that is very secure and stable. This gives the feeling of “real teeth”, allowing you to chew more comfortably, eat the foods you want and giving you the confidence you need. Oh yeah, and look fantastic!!
