You might be tired of your dentures falling out in public or getting loose all the time but implant supported dentures could save you from such embarrassments. We can explain you about the merits and functions of it during a consultation held at our dental office. Right from preserving the jaw bone to improving dental aesthetics, implant supported dentures does it all.
Implant supported dentures can be either fixed or removable. This solution requires the placement of two or more implants. If a removable denture is selected, the denture will “snap” on to the implant rather than requiring the use of denture paste or adhesives. Removable dentures can be taken out for cleaning at night.
This Technique Offers Many Advantages Over Traditional Dentures.
- Easy to care for, this solution can simulate the look and feel of natural teeth and stay fixed in place with the implants acting as anchors.
- Patients will not experience the typical rocking and movement or gum irritation associated with dentures.
- Dental implant placement can also help alleviate the sunken look that can occur with bone loss in the jaw by stimulating bone growth in the area around the implant. This process is called osseointegration and can also help prevent future bone loss.
What Can You Expect Out of Implant Supported Dentures?
The number of sittings required to fix an implant supported denture would vary from person to person. Some might even have to go through additional procedures in order to get their mouth prepared for the fixation of the denture supported by implants. A person may have to go through tooth extraction or bone grafting to be completely ready for the installation. With this, you can get the durability and strength which you were looking for in your traditional denture.
If we think that mini implants would be suitable for you, then you might get a chance to avoid the grafting surgery despite your weak bone. You will be eligible for the next procedure when your gums and jaw bone gets fully prepared for the installation of the implants.
