If you have missing teeth that affect your confidence and self-esteem, there is no need to suffer any longer. At Dentistry of Fishers, we offer several options to help you repair your smile and give you the boost you need to build strong personal and professional relationships. There are benefits to both implant supported dentures and regular dentures in Fishers, IN, and we want to help you choose which options work for you.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures are an extremely cost-effective way to replace missing teeth and offer you the comfort and confidence you need to show off your natural smile. Dentures can be removed when they are uncomfortable, and they are less expensive than other options, although they may not last as long and need to be replaced more often.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures are like the traditional option, except they are attached to and supported by implants. Regular dentures rest on the gums and have no connection to the jawbone. If there is enough bone in the jaw to support an implant, this is a valuable option that keeps the bone regenerating to retain the shape of your smile and face. Typically, implant supported dentures are placed in the lower jaw, but in some situations, can be used in both upper and lower.
The tooth’s root is connected to the jawbone and stimulates the bone to grow. Once it is missing, the jawbone slowly deteriorates and it can affect your health. Because dentures have absolutely no connection to the jawbone, implant supported dentures allow you to both remove your teeth and protect your jawbone.
We can help you decide which option is right for you, and which will work best in the long term. Our goal is to give you a smile you can be proud of, no matter where you are. Give us a call at our Fishers, IN office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jones.
