While conventional dentures are helpful in combating tooth loss, they do come with some frustrating drawbacks. Dentures often slip out of place at the most inconvenient moments, and they offer little chewing power, inhibiting your ability to enjoy many popular foods. They can be so uncomfortable that they cause small sores to form due to a poor fit.

What are implant-supported dentures?

Traditional dentures are removable devices that fit over your gums and are grounded with adhesives. By contrast, implant-supported dentures are supported by titanium rods embedded in the bone. There is no false palate with these newer models, so your sense of taste is perfectly preserved. For those who enjoy their food, this in itself is a huge attraction.

What can I expect from the procedure?

Your implant-supported dentures are carefully prepared according to your unique jaw shape and bite. We will conduct digital X-rays and CT scans, using advanced analytics to ensure a precise and comfortable fit.

Multiple implants are placed along the upper and lower arches. The dentures can then snap firmly onto their new support system. Once completed, you will be able to harness up to 60% of your normal chewing power while still being able to clean and care for your dentures as you’re used to doing with conventional models.

What are the benefits of implant-supported dentures?

Implant-supported dentures provide increased stability since they are anchored within the bone just like your natural teeth. This means you can enjoy eating a wide range of foods, including tough, crunchy, or chewy options, without having to worry about your dentures slipping or sliding out of place. The security of implant-supported dentures also makes it possible to speak with distinction and enunciate clearly.

You can talk on the phone, make a speech, or call out to someone in the next room and trust that you’ll be perfectly understood. One of the biggest reasons to choose implant-supported implants is because they prevent bone atrophy in the jaw. When the tooth roots are absent, the bone may deteriorate and shrink, altering the facial shape. The chewing power provided by implants ensures that your jaw remains healthy and functional long-term.
