Am I A Candidate for Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are a wonderful option for anyone who is missing all their natural teeth, and would like to try something different from conventional dentures.
Implant-supported dentures feature the placement of strong titanium implants which serve the same purpose tooth roots do. These implants are placed surgically, the surrounding bone heals up around the implants to anchor them, and they support a set of dentures. The implants prevent the dentures from slipping out of place, make your bite stronger, and prevent further loss of bone.
If you are interested in implant-supported dentures, what do you need in order to be a candidate for the procedure?
If you are ready to try a new set of teeth that work the way your originals did, then don’t hesitate to schedule a consult with your local dentist office. The best way to know whether you qualify for implant-supported dentures is to have a professional evaluation of your individual needs.
