Could An Implant-Supported Denture Change Your Life?

Posted in Dentures

For many people, losing their teeth is the end of the road. They feel that a denture is their last smile-replacement option for life.

A denture simply doesn’t compare to your natural teeth. Perhaps you struggle with caring for a denture. Having a denture makes some people self-conscious. Others are frustrated over trying to make it fit properly.

Did you know that a denture is not your final option?

An implant denture (or implant-supported denture) could revolutionize the way you enjoy life.

How An Implant-Supported Denture Works

Dental implants are small metal screws that are inserted into the bone of your jaw at key locations. These screws are made of a material that your body should accept as its own. When the bone heals up around the implants, they will be strong enough to support a denture that snaps onto the attachments.

When the implants are integrated into the bone, they will stimulate it to reinforce itself. This prevents the resorption that’s unavoidable with regular dentures that rest directly on top of your gums and bone.

Benefits of Securing Your Denture with Implants

Why choose implant therapy for your denture? With implants, you’ll enjoy such benefits as:

  • A stronger and more secure bite
  • Confidence that your denture will stay in place
  • Eating whatever you want
  • Not worrying about denture cleaners or adhesives
  • Strengthened bone in your jaw
  • Retaining the height and shape of your smile

Getting Started with An Implant-Supported Denture

To find out whether you are a candidate for implant therapy, schedule a consultation at your local dental office. An evaluation including digital x-ray imaging and special scans can help you plan for a successful surgery. Call your dentist today!
