If you are looking to get these dentures, our experts at East Village Dental Centre are here to enlighten you on how they work and the different types that exist.
We will restore your smile by placing the right dentures that address your specific oral problem.
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are a common teeth replacement option. This is a type of denture that is connected to your dental implants.
In this arrangement, dental implants are fitted with a unique mechanism that allows dentures to lock them securely. Implant-supported dentures differ from traditional ones because they don't sit directly on the gum tissues.
Even though regular dentures can do a good job by themselves, implant-supported dentures can provide function, comfort, and better aesthetics.
You will have a natural and beautiful smile with these dentures. Implant-supported dentures were specially designed to help patients with partial or complete tooth loss regain dental functionality.
While traditional dentures are held with aligners, implant-supported dentures are anchored on metallic posts.
This provides better stability that enhances the tooth's functionality. You can bite and chew on hard foods without worrying about breakage.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
There are many benefits of implant-supported dentures.
||Great Stability - Implant-supported dentures are more stable and will last longer. This is because they are anchored directly into your jawbone and are stable and as strong as your natural teeth.
You don't have to worry about eating hard foods as implant-supported dentures will remain in position. It won't feel like you lost your natural teeth.
||Avoid Bone Atrophy - One of the key health benefits of these dentures is that they help prevent bone atrophy. They do so by providing your jaw with the stimulation required to keep it in position. Tooth loss causes bone shrinkage in your jaw.
Thankfully, you can maintain a healthy jaw by having us place implant-supported dentures. We also encourage you to consider these oral appliances if your jawbone is out of shape. Dentures will help keep it in shape and maintain strength.
||Easy to Place - Our experts will only need a few hours to install implant-supported dentures. With these dentures, we won't need an adhesive, as is the case with traditional dentures.
This goes a long way in saving you time and money. You don't have to worry about making several appointments with us to restore your smile since it takes only a few steps to have the dentures in your mouth.
||Improved Aesthetics - Implant-supported dentures look just like your natural teeth. They are made of an acrylic material that looks just like natural teeth.
Apart from enhancing your smile, these dentures will also function like your natural teeth. We make implant-supported dentures customized to your specifications and ensure they fit as comfortably as possible. This will positively impact your smile and life.
What Is the Process for Placing Denture Implants?
Most of our patients wonder what the process of placing implant-supported dentures entails. Before we can place implants into your jaw, we will first extract damaged or decayed teeth.
After that, we will perform a comprehensive bone grafting procedure if you have a low bone density.
Remember that this is only done in areas with significant bone loss. Depending on your health and oral cavity, it might take a few months before we place the implants.
To keep your smile intact, we will give you temporary dentures you can use as you wait for the implant to heal. These temporary dentures replace the functions of your teeth and maintain your aesthetics.
After the implants heal, we will take your dental impressions. During this process, our experts will carefully take the impressions of your teeth and gums to ensure the final product is as accurate as possible.
It takes a few months for implants to integrate with your jawbone. The temporary dentures we fitted earlier will be taken out to allow the placement of permanent ones.
When taking dental impressions, our team uses advanced technology that captures every aspect of your mouth. We take impressions of your lower and upper dental arches to create a comfortable piece.
After taking these impressions, we will take them to a dental lab so that your new dentures can be crafted.
When the dentures are ready, you will come in for a denture placement procedure. Our team will attach the new custom dentures in your implants and help restore your smile.
We will also enlighten you on proper oral hygiene practices to keep your dentures in good condition. You should always adhere to proper dental hygiene to prevent damage to your oral appliances.
Are Implant Supported Dentures Worth It?
Implant-supported dentures are worth your investment. They help replace missing teeth and enhance your smile. The fact that they look like natural teeth also makes them a better option.
Are Implant Anchored Dentures Permanent?
Implant-supported dentures are permanent. This is because we permanently affix them into your jaw, where they remain for a long time. You can choose between having removable or fixed dentures.
Are Implant Retained Dentures Safe?
Implant-supported dentures are safe to use. You don't have to worry about any discomfort or threat to your oral health when using them. In fact, they help safeguard your teeth and gums.
How Do You Clean Implant Supported Dentures?
You should use a non-abrasive toothbrush and toothpaste when cleaning implant-supported dentures. Like your natural teeth, bacteria can accumulate on your dentures and cause tooth decay. You should clean them regularly using non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush.
