Dental Implant-secured Dentures
When choosing dentures, some patients may opt for securing the denture using dental implants. Qualifying patients can benefit from implant-supported dentures in many ways. Dental implants help to promote healthy bone growth and prevent facial sagging often associated with tooth loss. Dental implant-secured dentures make it possible for edentulous patients to enjoy a healthy, varied diet without restriction.
Our oral surgeon places the dental implant posts into healthy bone tissue and allows them to fuse with the jaw. The implants create a stable foundation that anchors the denture in place. Best of all, dental implants reduce or eliminate the embarrassment of loose dentures prone to slipping!
The implants provide strong and stable support for the dentures, allowing you to speak and chew with ease. They also keep your jawbone strong and healthy by providing stimulation to your jaw while you eat. This reduces the risk of bone atrophy that can accompany traditional dentures.
Traditional dentures can be uncomfortable and may slip. Implant-secured permanent dentures are strong, natural looking, and comfortable to wear all day long.
What are the benefits of having an implant-secured denture?
An implant-secured denture offers a higher level of stability and security compared to traditional, removable dentures. Implant-secured dentures will save you money in the long run, as they do not require constant adjustments and replacements. They also increase comfort and functionality, as they move at the same rate as natural teeth.
What dangers does tooth loss pose to my oral health?
Losing a majority of your teeth can often mean relying on a diet of primarily soft foods, reducing nutritional intake. In addition, you can have trouble speaking clearly and people understanding you.
The loss of tooth roots also means the body stops sending doses of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone. Without these nutrients, the jawbone will dissolve and lead to facial collapse which causes a significantly older appearance.
How much does an implant-secured denture cost?
The cost of an implant-secured denture will depend on a few factors. Factors such as the type of dental implant, the number of implant posts, and the materials for the denture itself. Generally speaking, it will cost more than a traditional denture.
How do full dentures work?
Traditional full dentures are removable and replace all of your teeth. They consist of an acrylic base that mimics the look of natural gum tissue. There is also a full row of lifelike teeth and the prosthetic holds in place with natural suction.
Can dental implants permanently support dentures?
Yes. Our oral surgeon can surgically insert multiple implant posts into your jaw to support the new prosthetic. The oral surgeon permanently attaches the denture in place, meaning you don’t need to remove it for soaking or maintenance. The implants can also stimulate jawbone growth, helping you avoid the onset of facial collapse.
