Implant-supported dentures are an innovative and secure dental solution that combines the stability of dental implants with the convenience of traditional dentures. Unlike traditional removable dentures, implant-supported dentures are firmly anchored to the jawbone through dental implants, providing a stable and comfortable fit. Typically, two to four dental implants are strategically placed in the jaw to support the denture, offering an excellent alternative for individuals with significant tooth loss or those seeking a more reliable denture option.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures Right for Me?
Implant-supported dentures are an excellent choice for those who have lost most or all of their teeth in one or both dental arches and are dissatisfied with the instability and discomfort of traditional dentures. Candidates should have adequate bone density to support the dental implants. Additionally, individuals who struggle with the adhesive creams or potential slipping of regular dentures can benefit greatly from the secure fit of implant-supported dentures.
The Treatment Process
The process of getting implant-supported dentures typically involves a comprehensive dental examination and treatment planning phase with Dr. Jasmeet Punia. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, and a healing period of a few months allows the implants to fuse with the bone through osseointegration. Once the implants are secure, the custom-made denture, designed to fit your mouth comfortably and aesthetically, is attached to the implants, ensuring a stable and permanent fit.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
- Superior stability, eliminating worries of denture movement or slipping while eating or speaking.
- Secure fit allows patients to enjoy a varied diet and speak with confidence.
- Dental implants’ stimulation helps maintain bone density in the jaw, preventing bone loss and preserving facial structure.
