Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures

Posted on: July 15, 2017

DenturesOne of the best ways to replace missing teeth is through implant supported dentures. This solution combines the convenience of a full set of dentures with the stability and durability of dental implants. As a result, implant supported dentures are an option that many patients who visit our clinic.

They look like natural teeth

We create the solution after taking measurements of the mouth and an impression of the remaining teeth and the gums. We use the impression to determine the exact size and shape that each tooth needs to be. After creating the full set of teeth in the dental lab, no one will be able to tell the difference.

Long gone are the days of dentures that appear overly large or like rabbit teeth. Our dentures are so natural-looking that even your close family members will be unable to tell.

They fit securely

Unlike traditional dentures, which can lose their shape over time or slip out of place due to changes with the jawbone itself, implant-supported dentures will remain completely secure. This is a huge convenience for anyone who wears dentures. People no longer have to live with the fear that their teeth might slip out of place at the most inconvenient of times.

They are held in place using dental implants

Implants are an incredible solution offered by modern-day dentistry. With this procedure, a small titanium post is implanted under the gums and secured to the jawbone. This has to be done surgically but has a very high rate of acceptance so few patients ever have a complication. Once there, the jawbone will begin to deposit bone around the titanium post so that it can essentially fuse together and become a new root system.

With traditional implants, a new tooth is secured to each implant. With implant supported dentures, the implants serve to anchor the dentures in place.

The process is completed faster

Placing traditional dental implants takes time. We can only surgically place so many implants in one day. Therefore, a full set of teeth may take several surgical appointments. Patients will also have to spend time recovering and it can interfere with a person’s lifestyle and other obligations.

With implant supported dentures, we only place a few implants, making it possible to have a fully secure new set of teeth in only a couple of appointments. This is a faster solution that is highly convenient, natural-looking and durable, making it incredibly popular.
