Enjoy Peace of Mind with Implant-Supported Dentures

Posted 6 years ago

For the edentulous patient, there is the struggle to find a tooth replacement that feels comfortable and looks attractive over a long period of time.

Of course, conventional dentures can provide short-term functionality. Unfortunately, due to natural bone loss and the change in the shape of the upper and lower jaw, dentures tend to become more bothersome, less effective, and less satisfying.

For the dentist, the ability to adjust and reline the denture becomes less predictable, as the foundation that supports the denture becomes less stable. Eventually, denture pastes and adhesives become a necessity that only partially resolves the issues of comfort and stability.[pullquote] Implants provide permanent stability, prevent bone loss, and increase your comfort and confidence for long-term satisfaction. [/pullquote]

As it is the case with many edentulous patients, there may be other challenges that can affect the success of the conventional denture. The patient may be challenged by poor health, may have trouble taking the denture in or out, or may be under the care of a health professional or family member. In these instances, removable teeth can be nearly impossible to manage.

When complete tooth loss is experienced, a number of unfortunate consequences are likely to arise:

  • A decline in general health
  • A loss of appetite
  • Tendency to avoid certain food items
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Impaired speech
  • Decreased self-confidence due to undesirable appearance

To resolve these issues and to provide the patient and (and the caregiver) with a renewed peace of mind, your implant dentist may suggest dental implants in conjunction with a denture.

A conventional denture can be modified to be compatible with implants or a brand new denture-implant restoration can be designed exclusively for you. Even a patient who has experienced tremendous bone loss and those patients who have worn dentures for years can still enjoy the advantages of an implant-supported denture.

Implants provide permanent stability, prevent bone loss, and increase your comfort and confidence for long-term satisfaction. The ability to regain or improve the quality of your life is an immeasurable benefit that can last for a lifetime.
