Implant-supported Dentures Restore Function, Aesthetics, and Quality of Life
Dentures can be a beneficial, life-changing solution for patients in need of support for total teeth replacement. But let’s face it, not all mouths and not all dental problems are created equal and traditional dentures are not the answer for everyone. Dentures can have negative effects on facial features, be ill-fitting, contribute to bone loss, and cause discomfort when chewing a variety of foods.
Implant retained dentures can change everything by providing solid foundation. They allow for more confidence, comfort, freedom, and function by offering a more superior option to traditional dentures. Implant retained dentures help enhance appearance by preserving facial structure and preventing bone deterioration caused by missing teeth. There’s no adhesive and no fear of slipping, just a natural look that’s feels great.
Dr. Michael C. Fling and his dedicated team will work with all patients interested in implant retained dentures by performing a complete dental/radiographic evaluation before thoroughly discussing health history to address specific concerns for a considerate, personalized level of care.
How Do Implant Retained Dentures Work?
Depending on the patient’s individual needs and jaw structure, there are a few different options Dr. Fling can utilize to create a healthy, long-lasting smile. Implant posts can be placed in the lower jaw to securely hold dentures in place, and keep a patient’s bone intact with added support. Depending on what option best suits a patient, the number of implant posts will vary. These implants create an anchor for both partial and full dentures. Two of these options do allow for the removal of the dentures for cleaning, while third option is more permanent.
Benefits of Implant Retained Dentures
With these types of dentures, patients enjoy less slipping, irritation, and pain compared to traditional dentures. And there’s no need to remove implant retained dentures in the evening for overnight cleaning and soaking. Because these types of dentures are fixed firmly to the jawbone, they act more like tooth roots allowing for better chewing and enjoyment of foods that are off-limits with traditional dentures.
