What are Implant Supported Dentures?
A denture is a removable appliance with prosthetic teeth attached, typically made of acrylic, that is designed replace an entire arch of teeth. Dentures rely on a snug fit and suction to the jawbone to stay in place, and it does take some getting used to at first. Patients who wear dentures often complain about the time it takes to learn how to talk and eat again, as they may sometimes move or slip.
Implant supported dentures have revolutionized the way that patients wear their dentures. By strategically placing dental implants in your jawbone, your dentist will custom design your dentures to attach to the dental implants. After the appropriate healing time has passed your denture will be permanently attached to your implants and naturally complete your smile.
What are the Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures?
One of the greatest benefits that implant supported dentures offer is the secure fit. Because your denture attaches to your implants, there’s no movement or slippage when you eat or talk, and no learning curve. Patients appreciate the way that these dentures restore beauty and function to their smile immediately.
Implants also help to restore your oral health by protecting your bone from deterioration. When you’re missing your teeth and roots, your jawbone begins to resorb and lose density over time. This changes the appearance of your face and affects your oral health by putting remaining teeth at risk for loss.
