Advantages of Implant Supported Dentures
Security – When any type of tooth replacement is utilized, you will have concerns about how well they will look and function. You can be secure in knowing that implant supported dentures will perform to your utmost satisfaction.
Stability – These dentures will fit so well that there will not be movement while eating, speaking, or laughing. You will never have to worry about slippage.
Support for your jaw – When tooth loss occurs, the bones that hold your teeth in place begins to resorb (deteriorate). This can lead to gums shrinking resulting in a sagging of the area around your mouth. Unlike a traditional denture that merely sits on gum tissue, dental implants have been proven to help prevent bone loss that can lead to a change in your appearance. When implants are placed, jaw bone integrates the implant providing a way for the jaw to stay strong.
The process for receiving implant supported dentures does take longer to complete than a traditional denture, but there is no question that the result far outweighs the time spent to complete treatment.
Implant supported dentures are a wonderful way to restore your ability to eat your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile with confidence knowing your teeth look and feel fabulous.
