If you’re tired of loose dentures and the low chewing power they provide, Dr. Aslam can give you enhanced stability and stronger chewing with dental implants.
Implant-supported, “snap-on” dentures provide a much better chewing experience than conventional dentures. Dr. Aslam can stabilize a lower denture using a minimum of two implants, though more is better. Four implants supporting a lower denture can restore around 70 percent of the patient’s natural chewing power, while a traditional denture only provides around 10 percent.
Dr. Aslam can also stabilize an upper denture using a minimum of four implants. Snap-on upper dentures do away with the false upper palate that covers the roof of the mouth, which means patients can taste and feel their food much better than with a traditional upper denture.
Snap-on dentures can be a more affordable option than fixed-in, implant-supported teeth, however they do not provide the full chewing power and convenience that fixed-in teeth do. Dr. Aslam can go over the differences between snap-on teeth and the New Teeth in One Day procedure with you in an informative consultation.
