All On X - Implant Supported Rehabilitation in Surat, Gujarat
When you miss a few teeth or the entire set of teeth in your mouth, not only does the facial shape change but you suddenly start looking much older than your age. It also affects your eating and natural speech.
Complete tooth loss or edentulism is nothing but the disability impacting on mental health and well-being through consequences such as low self-esteem, and decline in social activities due to embarrassment. Despite advances in Preventive Dentistry, complete edentulism is still a major public health problem around the globe.
Dentures Vs Implant Supported Rehabilitation - Which one is best?
If many teeth are missing, dentures often are the first solution that comes to mind. BUT the denture wearers often complain about how uncomfortable they are when eating, it restricts their food choices, and it also needs to be removed for cleaning.
Dentures may also affect your pronunciation which keeps you from speaking freely in public. Ill-fitting dentures often fall off the mouth creating embarrassing moments in the public. Even after numerous dental visits to get them fixed, some geriatric patients are still left frustrated and in pain. Poor biting efficiency eventually made them discard the dentures and choose a soft diet or only fluids. Ultimately, indigestion and malnutrition affect the overall well-being when they need a healthy life.
If you are experiencing similar problems, Our skilled and qualified dentists provide modern dental solutions that can help you bring back the full function of your teeth and your quality of life.

The better the foundation, the stronger the structure. Lately researchers have found much favourable results as we increase the number of implants up to 6-8. As the support gets stronger, the tooth frame feels fit and looks much more natural as it has a lesser amount of Acrylic (plastic). It feels comfortable and increases confidence. It also prevents you from looking prematurely old by preventing damage to the jaw bone. A lesser amount of acrylic (Plastic) in the base makes it easier to talk and speak clearly.
