Do you talk differently with dentures?

Because dentures alter the anatomy of your mouth, they can impact the way that you talk and sound. This is more so for new denture wearers who are just getting used to them and learning to navigate their speech with a slightly different oral structure.

Many denture wearers find that they sound strange to themselves when they first start wearing them or that they sound far louder than normal. This is often more noticeable to them than it is to others. Even still, it can be very distracting and maybe harder to hold a conversation in the beginning stages.

Old or poorly fitted dentures that slip around a lot can affect speech significantly. It can be hard to talk normally or engage in social situations when you're wrestling your dentures, trying to stop them from popping out!

New denture wearers often find the following:

These types of sensations and experiences are far more common with traditional dentures that brace around your jaw bone and gum tissue of your dental arch.

Implant-supported dentures in Calgary, NW, have a more stable and natural fit that are designed to stay in your mouth permanently. 

Without the risk of sliding, shifting and fall-out, it can be easier to speak, articulate words and eat without as much fumbling and struggling, especially in the beginning of having implant-supported dentures.

With that said, getting implant-supported dentures in Calgary, NW, is also a learning process and takes a bit of time, and healing, to get accustomed to!

Despite the initial awkwardness, dentures can greatly enhance your quality of life and self-esteem if your teeth are in rough condition.

Implant-supported dentures can offer a fantastic level of security, stability and consistency that not only creates a full smile but a functional one!

What are implant supported dentures?

Implants provide additional support for your existing partial or full dentures, helping to reduce uncomfortable movement. In many cases, implants work to minimize gum irritation and pain often associated with these removable partials or conventional full dentures.

Dental Implants are small titanium fixtures which are surgically placed in the upper and/or lower jawbone. They replace the root of your missing tooth and provide an anchor for you dental prosthesis (partial or full dentures).

The Dental Implant Procedure

What are the benefits of implant supported dentures?

Because implant supported dentures will replace some of your tooth roots, your bone may be much better preserved. With conventional dentures, the bone that previously surrounded your teeth roots begins to deteriorate (atrophy).

Dental implants integrate with the jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. The loss of bone that accompanies conventional gum supported dentures may lead to a recession of the jawbone and a collapsed, unattractive smile. When this happens, wrinkles on the face near the mouth may become deeper and can be continually cracked or remain red from the moisture of the lips.

Conventional dentures make it difficult to eat certain foods as they tend to move or float within your mouth. Implants allow the dentures to be “snapped” into place eliminating movement which in turn helps to eliminate the need for adhesives. Implant dentures are extremely stable and comfortable and they help to improve digestion. In many cases, an implant denture works to eliminate the need for the roof of your mouth to be covered by the plastic of old-fashioned dentures.

Implants can also provide a non-surgical facelift. Implant dentures help to restore lip support and minimize wrinkles around the mouth, which many denture wearers suffer from.
