Choosing implant dentures to replace missing teeth affords you the following advantages
- Implant dentures stay put – never worry about movement or slippage.
- Implant dentures do not make embarrassing noises when you eat, speak, yawn or swallow.
- Implant dentures are comfortable, will not irritate your gum tissues, and never require pastes or adhesives to stay in place.
- Implant dentures restore function and appearance to your smile, leaving you with greater self-confidence to interact with others.
Implant supported dentures are either fixed or removable, and can be designed with an open palate feature for a more enjoyable eating experience. Because the implants engage with the bone each time you chew, they help to preserve bone health, leaving you with a solid foundation for your permanent tooth replacement. Implant dentures offer an improved quality of life and peace of mind you just can not get with traditional removable appliances.
Implant Supported Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures are removable and rely on pastes and adhesives to stay in place. Because they rest on the gums and do not engage with the bone, the bone tissue receives no stimulation and deteriorates over time. As a result, traditional dentures have to be relined or replaced frequently to keep up with the changing shape of the supporting jaw bone.
