Implant-supported dentures are a dental restoration service that is great for patients. As its name states, the procedure involves using dental implants to support a denture. They are the middle ground between an adhesive denture and the more expensive full-arch dental implants. Let’s dive more into the service and its benefits?
Implant-supported dentures are a great option for individuals seeking an affordable solution to improve their ability to chew and smile. They are sturdy and do not require adhesive because of the use of dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth roots. Once the dental implants have fused with the jawbone, a denture is attached to the implants using special connectors. The denture is designed to fit snugly onto the implants, providing a stable and secure foundation.
The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures can be used to replace all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw or just a few teeth. They offer many benefits over traditional dentures, including:
These dentures are securely anchored to the jawbone so they won’t slip or shift around like traditional dentures. You can choose removable or nonremovable dentures depending on your needs.
Improved Chewing Ability
The stability allows you to eat a wider variety of foods confidently. You can add foods you would typically have to avoid with traditional dentures, like fruits, vegetables, and others that might be difficult to chew.
Implant-supported dentures are designed to fit more comfortably and securely than traditional dentures, reducing the risk of sore spots and irritation.
More stability and the fact that the dentures don’t move around in your mouth, can improve your speech and pronunciation.
Implant-supported dentures are designed to be long-lasting and durable, providing a reliable solution for missing teeth.
