Implant Supported Dentures
In the United States alone, around 40 million people are completely edentulous (without teeth). While many turn to traditional dentures, they often find these appliances to be short-term, inadequate and difficult to wear. Implant supported dentures offer a viable, life-changing solution to extensive or full arch tooth loss. Supported by the stability of dental implants, this long-term option provides the opportunity to enjoy your smile once again, with a look, feel and function comparable to natural teeth.
Candidates for implant supported dentures may be those who have:
- Multiple missing or hopeless teeth
- Full arch tooth loss
- Traditional dentures
- Adequate jaw bone levels
- Good general health
For many patients, wearing traditional dentures presents a struggle as they tend to slip, shift and make noise when eating or speaking. Unlike implant supported dentures, these prosthetics often irritate soft tissues in the mouth, causing sores and discomfort. Because dentures merely rest on top of the gums, and do not engage the bone like implants, they do nothing to help preserve bone health. Over time, this leads to bone deterioration and changes in the way dentures fit the mouth. Implant supported dentures offer a more permanent, far more comfortable alternative to traditional appliances. Implant supported dentures securely attach to a series of two or more implants that are placed in and integrate with the jaw bone. This connection mimics that of natural teeth and tooth roots, and offers incomparable advantages to your health and smile.
Benefits of implant supported dentures over traditional dentures:
- Long-term tooth replacement
- Stable, solid biting function
- Highly cosmetic, natural esthetics
- Improve speaking and eating abilities
- Preserve jaw bone tissue
- Maintain facial shape
- Enhance self-esteem
- Increase quality of life standards
