Tooth loss can cause cheeks to sink in, making a person look older. Dentures reverse that effect by bringing back definition to the face. Other advantages to wearing dentures include an improved ability to chew food, improved speech and increased self-esteem.
While dentures certainly bring many life-changing benefits, almost all denture-wearers find that problems occur. Typically, dentures become loose and can cause painful sore spots. Maintaining them requires frequent visits to the dentist for adjustments and may require repeated relines and adhesives.
With Denture Comfort™ technology, which is FDA market-approved, dentures are kept firmly in place while providing gentle cushioning for the gums.
Four to six ultra-narrow titanium Atlas™ implants are installed, and the denture is lined with a soft, elastic silicone base. This base grips the implants and cushions the gums. And that’s it. Because there are no stitches involved, as there is no cutting of the gum tissue, all normal functions can be resumed within just a few hours.
Not only will dentures be far more comfortable, they can be worn while sleeping. The Denture Comfort™ technology also dramatically slows the degeneration of the ridge which is the primary cause of loose dentures. This one-hour procedure works for either new or current denture wearers.
