What Are Implant Supported Dentures?

Implant supported dentures are a popular and effective solution for individuals who have lost multiple teeth or are experiencing extensive bone loss in their jaw. Unlike traditional dentures, which rest on top of the gums and rely on natural suction to stay in place, implant supported dentures are anchored to small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone.

This provides a stable and secure foundation for the dentures, allowing for better chewing and preventing slippage or discomfort.

Implant supported dentures are also more natural looking than traditional dentures. They can improve the confidence and quality of life of those who choose this option. The process of getting implant supported dentures can take several months and require multiple appointments, but the result is worth it for people seeking a long term, reliable solution to their dental needs.

Who Is the Best Candidate for Implant Supported Dentures?

Implant supported dentures are an excellent option for people missing all or most of their teeth. According to Rebecca Carratt, DMD candidates for implant supported dentures should have healthy gums, adequate bone density, and be committed to good oral hygiene. Patients with bone loss may still be eligible for implant supported dentures with a bone graft procedure.

What Are the Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures Compared to Traditional Dentures?

Implant supported dentures offer several benefits compared to traditional dentures;
•  The implants provide a sturdy and secure base for the dentures, preventing them from slipping or falling out during daily activities like eating and talking.
•  With implant supported dentures, there is increased comfort meaning no bulky and uncomfortable materials covering the roof of the mouth.
•  Implant supported dentures help preserve the jawbone, preventing bone loss that can occur with traditional dentures. This also helps maintain the integrity and alignment of surrounding teeth.
•  With the stability and comfort of implant supported dentures, patients can enjoy improved self-esteem and confidence in social situations.
•  Implant supported dentures are more durable and long-lasting than traditional dentures, which need to be replaced periodically due to wear and tear.

Are There Any Drawbacks of Implant Supported Dentures?

There are also some potential drawbacks of implant supported dentures. These include
•  Implant supported dentures are generally more expensive than traditional dentures, due to the need for implant surgery and the cost of dental implant materials.
•  Implant supported dentures require an invasive surgery that involves the insertion of implants into the jawbone. This can be a concern for patients with existing medical conditions or those who are not comfortable with the procedure.
•  The patient may have to wait several months for the implanted posts to fully integrate with the jawbone before the dentures can be fitted.
