The perfect solution to uncomfortable dentures
- Posted on: Feb 14 2021
Many people unfortunately deal with tooth loss and wear full dentures to replace an entire arch of teeth. However, a large majority of these individuals also complain about how their dentures fit, function, or look. Additionally, many patients are uneasy about participating in certain social situations because they are embarrassed by their dentures or afraid of embarrassing mishaps with poorly-fitted prosthetics. When patients are unhappy with full dentures, it is time to book a consultation appointment with our team of professionals to discuss another alternative solution: implant-supported dentures. Dr. Lenny Slepchik in downtown Montreal recommends implant supported dentures for his patients who are missing all the teeth in the upper and/or lower arch.
What are implant-Supported dentures?
Dr. Lenny Slepchik describes the implant-supported denture as a restoration that fits and functions correctly without the use of denture adhesives. Instead of keeping full dentures in place with dental adhesives or even natural suction, patients can do so having several dental implants along the gum line. Dental implants are titanium posts placed during oral surgery along the arch and used as a foundational support for a full denture. Because the implants derive their strength from the bone of the jaw, they are very strong and stable. The denture looks completely natural and is used along with the dental implants to snap into place. The final result is a natural-looking gorgeous smile that gives patients the confidence to socialize with others, eat and chew their favourite foods, and feel at ease.
Who is a candidate for implant -Supported dentures?
The best candidate for this treatment is an adult patient who has experienced significant tooth loss and has enough bone for successful oral surgery to place their implants.
