Painful Dentures? Implant Solutions for Patients in South Edmonton
Do you find chewing difficult? Does eating raw vegetables hurt your gums? Are your dentures loose, causing frequent soreness? Are your gums shrinking? You may be a candidate for implants.
Implants are basically artificial roots to which your denture is affixed, making chewing easy and comfortable again. Installed by a surgeon trained in implant procedures, 2-5 implants will serve as anchors for your prosthesis providing all the stability you will need. Sometimes, no matter how well your denture fits your gum, it will not stay in place.
One of the options available is the bar implant system.
