What is a Denture Eliminator?

February 13, 2023

Tooth loss is a common occurrence, not just for the elderly but younger individuals as well. Close to 70% of adults between 35 and 44 years of age have at least one missing tooth, while 1 in 4 people over 74 are missing all their teeth.

For years, dentures were the “go to” solution when it came to resolving tooth loss issues. That’s no longer the case since oral surgery and tooth replacement options have evolved as new technologies addressing the age-old problem of missing teeth and the drawbacks that go with wearing dentures are now available.

Wearing dentures has its share of side effects such as discomfort, speech difficulties, difficulty eating, and even affecting the taste of certain foods. Over time, dentures can potentially lead to more complications such as bone loss. And since dentures don’t have roots like your natural teeth to maintain bone in your jaw, the jawbone can shrink dramatically after prolonged wear of dentures in most patients.

The most natural, comfortable, and functional option for the replacement of all teeth in an upper or lower jaw is a long-term solution that we call the Lakeside Denture Eliminator™. By placing 8-12 implants in the gum of jaw missing all teeth, the team at Lakeside can design a prosthesis that helps to maintain bone levels is permanently cemented into your mouth. It works, looks, and feels as close to having your own teeth as is possible.

Patients who have gotten the Lakeside Denture Eliminator™ are thrilled with the feeling of having their teeth back. This process represents a permanent solution that can lead to fewer visits to the dentist simply because Denture Eliminator implants are easier to maintain compared to traditional dentures And, just like regular teeth, Denture Eliminator implants can be cared for by brushing using a Water Pik™ oral “power washer” appliance along with rinsing or swishing with a specific high-tech mouthwash we specify.

With the Lakeside Denture Eliminator™, there’s no need to worry about these replacement teeth falling out while speaking or laughing in social situations. Also, the Lakeside Denture Eliminator™ just feels more comfortable and looks more natural than dentures.
