The concept behind implant-supported dentures is simple and offers many benefits over traditional dentures. As the name suggests, the implants are used to secure your dentures permanently in place. This means no more removing them for maintenance or buying messy adhesives. Implant-supported dentures become your new teeth, greatly enhancing your ability to eat, speak, and live your life to the fullest.
Traditional dentures are a step above life with missing teeth, but many patients find them uncomfortable or difficult to live with. Fortunately, implant-supported dentures eliminate many of the problems patients have with traditional dentures. Here are their key benefits:
Standard dentures don’t provide enough constant stimulus to stop the jawbone fromshrinking. However, with the addition of implants, the restoration becomes permanent, meaning it provides as much stimulation for the jaw as natural teeth. This will prevent the sunken cheeks look and help you keep your youthful appearance for as long as possible.
Whether you need several teeth or an entire arch, you can trust implant-supported dentures to completely cover the missing teeth in your mouth. Comprised of high quality, natural-looking materials, your restoration will be a major enhancement to your smile.
One of the most commonly dreaded aspects of wearing dentures is that they have to be removed each night for cleaning purposes and returned to your mouth using messy adhesives. Fortunately, implant-supported dentures get rid of the need for dental adhesives forever, providing you with a permanent restoration you can count on.
Quality of life is a major factor that contributes greatly to your overall happiness. When you can’t chew the foods you love or speak without lisping noises, your quality of life can suffer, but implant-supported dentures ensure that you regain full use of your chewing and speaking skills.
