Implant Supported Dentures
Did you know?
Implant supported dentures are an amazing alternative to conventional dentures. They are a man-made replacement for the tooth roots that have been lost and help to prevent future bone loss. Having implants allows you to speak and laugh more naturally and can vastly improve your quality of life by increasing your comfort and self-confidence. Implants will normally last a lifetime with proper care and hygiene. They are made of biocompatible materials which your body accepts more readily.
Reasons for Dental Implants
Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.
Types of Implant Supported Dentures
Removable Implant over-dentures provide stability where new teeth are attached to two or more dental implants, making this a cost-effective option. You can chew with confidence a variety of foods and your sense of taste is unaffected. Your teeth can be removed for cleaning and the need for denture adhesives is eliminated.
on Fixed Implant Bar
For an even more secure fit, a dental bar is fixed to your jaw bone with two or more implants, providing stronger support for your removable dentures. Your new teeth can be removed for cleaning and the need for denture adhesives is eliminated.
on Multiple Implants
Fixed Implant supported bridges are a more durable soloution with natural looking replacement teeth, secured on four or more dental implants. This soloution stimulates bone maintenance, restores chewing function, and maintains taste sensation.
