Dentures & Implant Supported Dentures
Are you unhappy with your current dentures? Dr. Mantis can help you to look better, feel better and allow you to chew your food more comfortably with implant supported dentures.
Traditional dentures cause gum irritation and can move, slip or fall out of the mouth. Chewing can also be difficult and often people are limited as to what they can eat. Statistics show that conventional dentures are only able to provide an average of 20% chewing efficiency. With dental implants, your chewing efficiency can be increased to around 90%.
Dr. Mantis utilizes dental implants to act as anchors to support dentures and separate them from the gums. The dentures are affixed to the implants and become a permanent, more natural feeling part of your mouth.
Some of the benefits of implant supported dentures are:
- Less gum discomfort and irritation
- No need for denture adhesives
- Increased comfort and stability
- Increased chewing efficiency
- A more natural look and feel
- Prevents dentures from slipping out of place
- Restores teeth functionality and the ability to eat and chew normally
- Option to have an open palate allows for more natural tongue placement
One of Chicago’s North Shore most experienced Dentist’s, Dr. Mantis is not only skilled in denture design and placement for natural-looking teeth replacement, he has also received special training in providing the Turbyfill denture, the latest innovation in superior dental restoration.
Turbyfill dentures are specially designed to better conform to the exact measurements and physiology of a patient’s mouth, making them so well-fitting they do not require any dental adhesive to stay fixed in your mouth! This custom fit improves a denture patient’s ability to eat and talk normally and helps to eliminate the minor irritation and soreness that is typical for traditional dentures.
