The Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
- Posted on: Jul 30 2019
If you have had to have a lot of teeth pulled lately or if you keep on running into cavities then Dr. Slepchik may recommend dentures. As a way to preserve your jawbone while getting rid of infected teeth, dentures are great at helping you maintain your smile. But, regular dentures aren’t necessarily for everyone which is where implant supported dentures come into play.
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Traditionally, dentures sit on your gums, and you can take them out whenever you want. Even though a lot of patients find traditional dentures to be beneficial, they aren’t necessarily for everyone, which is where dental implant supported dentures come into play. Implant supported dentures are dentures that are affixed to dental implants so that they don’t move around.
What are the benefits?
- Stability: The number one thing that patients like about dental implant supported dentures is the fact that they are a lot more stable than traditional dentures.
- Functionality: Although dentures are supposed to stay in place when you chew, they tend to move around a lot. Dental implant supported implants allow you to eat without having to worry that they will pop out or become loose.
- They Can Go Both Ways: One of the unique things about these types of dentures is that they can be both permanent or semi-permanent. Some patients prefer to have theirs fixed in place while others prefer to have their attached to a retainer so that they can remove them whenever they want. During your initial consultation, Dr. Slepchik will discuss both of these options with you so that you can determine which option will give you better convenience and results.
Many of our patients have been successful with their implant supported dentures. Rather than having to come in too often to have a tooth pulled or a cavity filled, dental implant supported dentures can save your smile so that you don’t have to deal with all of the hassle.
