Implant Supported Dentures
Your Guide to Implant Supported Dentures
An implant supported denture is a denture fixed to the gums with mini implants. Patients with an uncomfortable or loose-fitting denture can achieve the ideal level of comfort and functionality with implant-supported products.
The mini implant is placed in the patient’s jaw where it heals in-place within the surrounding bone. The dentist places attachments on the underside of the denture to connect it to the implant. After being placed in the mouth, the denture snaps directly onto the implants, ensuring stability and security.
The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures provide the patient with confidence that when they talk laugh or eat in public they won’t have to worry about false teeth slipping or falling out.
The implant-supported denture is significantly more comfortable because the system is secure and feels like natural teeth. It also limits the irritation of gums, with canker sores a common problem for wearers of conventional dentures.
The implant-supported denture looks more natural as less plastic is used for retention. And the product also helps improve appearance by preventing jaw shrinkage.
The implant-supported denture will help the patient to relax and talk more comfortably with their natural voice, limiting the difficulty that wearers of conventional dentures often experience in communicating. Due to their natural stability, there’s no need for implant-supported dentures to be held in placed by adhesives.
