The Benefit of Implant Supported Dentures

Dental Implant DenturesThose with dentures know that they are difficult to wear, at best. Did you know that dental implants can be used underneath removable dentures to eliminate many of the issues associated with denture wear?

Implant-Supported Dentures

An implant-supported denture is simply a type of over-denture that is supported by, and attached to, dental implants. While a regular denture rests on the gums, an implant-supported denture is used when a person has enough bone in their jaw to support dental implants. Four dental implants under an upper denture can hold it securely so that the size of the plate can be reduced, removing the palate from the denture altogether. Just two implants are all that’s needed under a lower denture!

Non-removable implant supported dentures may be an option for those who don’t want to take their dentures out every day. This option requires more dental implants than a removable implant denture. With non-removable implant supported dentures the denture is actually screwed onto the dental implants. The final result is a much more natural feeling with one’s normal chewing forces completely restored… and you never have to take it out.

Patients at Smile Savers Dentistry say that the improved ability to chew their food is one of the biggest benefits of their implant-supported denture. Since the dentures anchor on the implants instead of merely resting on the gums, they allow patients to bite much harder with no discomfort. Another benefit of implant supported dentures – no messy adhesives!
