Tooth loss can have a huge impact on your daily life and can make it harder to perform simple tasks like eating and speaking clearly. When you’re missing multiple teeth, it also affects the way you feel about yourself and the quality of your life. If you are missing several or all of your teeth, there are reliable, long-term treatment options available to you, including implant supported dentures.

What Are Implant Supported Dentures?

Implant supported dentures differ from traditional dentures in one key area: they are held in place by a series of strategically-placed dental implants. The implants are inserted into the jaw bone and eventually become fused to the bone during a process called osseointegration. This fusion gives implant supported dentures their strength and renowned reliability.

What Are Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures?

In addition to the benefit of superior reliability already mentioned, implant supported dentures also offer the following notable benefits:

  • Natural appearance
  • Permanent placement (no need to use pastes to secure them in place)
  • Bone preservation due to stimulation of the bone by the implant posts
  • No risk of embarrassing situations like losing your teeth during dinner or conversation
  • Improved self-esteem

Implant supported dentures are designed to stay firmly in place, which means you won’t need to worry about them making distracting clicking noises like dentures sometimes do when they move around in the mouth. Even if you currently have traditional dentures, you can still make the upgrade to implant supported dentures at any time. Just talk to your periodontist about why you want to make the change.
