Orofacial pain is a phrase used to describe any discomfort in the face, mouth, head, or neck. Dentists and medical professionals offer numerous treatments for chronic orofacial pain, but much of this treatment is not necessarily an effective cure. Instead, most of the treatments currently available focus on relieving the symptoms through regular preventive dental treatments that don’t necessarily fix the underlying causes of the orofacial pain and discomfort. Lucky for patients who suffer from orofacial pain, there are many new methods for treating these conditions, and there may be an innovative new treatment method on the horizon.

In the Victorian era, wealthy couples often received a set of dentures as a wedding gift. If they were very lucky, they might receive two sets. These dentures were by no means customized, and in most cases, they were barely functional. Today, dentists repair smiles following advanced tooth loss a little differently. The technologies, materials, and placement methods continue to change each year, improving the results of denture restoration and recreating flawless smiles. Specifically, patients now have the option to anchor dentures to dental implants, creating significantly improved chewing function and a more natural appearance. However, not all patients have been able to receive implant supported dentures for a variety of reasons including gum tissue volume, jawbone density, and health concerns. That’s where the innovative Locator® implant overdenture can help.
