The Superior Option to Replace Missing Teeth
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, you have many options available to you from dental bridges, to dentures, and even dental implants. For those who are missing a full arch of teeth, have failing teeth, or are tired of wearing traditional dentures implant supported dentures are a beneficial alternative. By placing dental implants within your jaw bone, a denture prosthesis can be connected to form a stable, natural bite. Implant supported dentures grant you both the attractive look of dentures with the health benefits and stability of dental implants. Many patients who already have dentures choose this option as a more affordable and easy transition into full arch dental implants.
The Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
- Stability within the jaw
- Natural look and feel
- Improved jaw health
- Enhanced self-confidence
- Long-term tooth replacement solution
Dentures vs. Implant Supported Dentures
While dentures may initially appear to be a more affordable and attractive option for an entire mouth of missing teeth, they don’t have the health benefits and longevity that implants provide. After years of wearing dentures, the jaw bone will begin to deteriorate due to lack of bone stimulation. This causes an unbalanced denture that is prone to slipping or falling out, as well as being uncomfortable within the mouth. These ill-fitting dentures will eventually need to be replaced, adding additional cost to your mouth. With implant supported dentures, the dental implants stimulate the jaw bone for continued growth and securely “snap” into the denture, holding it in place securely. With proper care, you will never have to replace the denture or implants.
