How to look after your dentures

Your dentures deteriorate over time, this is a fact. They are also quite fragile too, so it is not unusual for them to be accidentally dropped in the sink or on the floor while being removed.

Are there any permanent alternatives to dentures?

One solution of this type is dental implants.

Dental implants are designed to be complete replacements for extracted or lost teeth so that your bite remains consistent. The implants are made from titanium, which is fixed permanently into your jaw bone. These are then topped with the final prosthetic work which will replace your denture. However, they are fixed permanently into the jawbone by a vertical metal rod, which makes them much more durable.
