The Importance Of Visiting A Dentist During Pregnancy

Hello, my name is Karla Madison and this is my blog about the importance of dental care during pregnancy. When I was pregnant with my second child, my gums would bleed when I brushed my teeth. I went to my dentist and he told me that I had pregnancy gingivitis. He also informed me that this is a common condition for pregnant women because their hormones are changing during pregnancy. I followed the instructions of my dentist and my gums stopped bleeding and were healthy again. I also started doing research about the importance of dental care during pregnancy. If you're pregnant, you should read this blog to learn why it's so important to keep up with dental care while pregnant. This blog will give you the information you need so that you can have healthy teeth and gums during your pregnancy.

2 Ways Dental Implants Can Make Your Dentures Wearable

by Rose Hale

After you have several teeth extracted, you have to do some adapting to the change. If you're not adapting to dentures well, you can get some help. Some people just don't do well with a full set of dentures in their mouth while others can adjust without issue. Here, you'll find a few changes that can make wearing your dentures more comfortable and natural so that you can get back to enjoying the foods you love and having conversations that you're comfortable having.

Lower Denture Problems

Many denture wearers that have problems wearing a full set of dentures have problems because of the lower denture. Because there's so much less support for a lower denture than there is for an upper, the lower can rub, pop loose, and just not fit as snuggly as you'd need it to in order to live a relatively normal life.

Instead of struggling with the lower denture, dental implants can be used. No, you won't have to pay to have the entire lower teeth replaced – you'll just get 4 or so implants that will hold the lower denture in place. You see, once the implants are put in place and have healed, the dentist will take the denture, add some fixtures to it so that it will snap onto the implant and teach you how to get it in and out as needed. This will stop the flopping and sliding of the lower denture and make it much easier to eat what you want.

Upper Denture Problems

One of the most common problems that denture wearers have with the upper denture is the gag reflex. Some people have a very sensitive gag reflex that is triggered anytime the denture is in their mouth.

To resolve this issue, dental implants can be used to secure the upper denture after the denture is adjusted to cut back the area that rests on the roof of the mouth. Instead of a full denture coating the roof of the mouth, it will be trimmed back to fit just over the gums where the teeth would naturally grow. This is only possible if there are implant posts for the denture to snap onto.

Talk with your dentist about how dental implants can make it possible for you to enjoy every day of your life even after having to get dentures. Hopefully, by this time next year, you'll have made the changes needed to find comfort in your false teeth.
