What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
If you’re missing most or all of your natural teeth, or suffering from periodontal disease, you have several replacement options:
Since fewer implants are required for implant-supported dentures, they’re an ideal option for patients with more extensive bone loss. They look and function like natural teeth, and unlike dentures, there’s no risk of them slipping or falling out. Dental implants are also far more comfortable than dentures, which can rub or cut the gums.
Regardless of the type of implant used, dental implants are a much more effective (and permanent) solution for tooth replacement than bridges or dentures.
What to Know About the Dental Implant Procedure
We’ll start with a thorough examination and evaluation of your overall health. If you have broken or damaged teeth within the arch you’re replacing, these may need to be extracted. We’ll also take digital 3D x-rays, so we can evaluate the density of your bone and determine whether bone grafting is necessary.
Afterward, we’ll take a digital impression of your mouth and some measurements for our lab. We’ll place the dental implants, and once your jaw can support the implant, attach your new teeth. Implant supported dentures generally last 15 years or more with proper care, while the implants themselves are permanent. To keep your prosthesis in good condition, it’s important to follow Dr. Carter’s instructions and avoid eating excessively hard foods that can damage them.
The Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Traditional dentures require periodic realignment due to the bone atrophy that occurs with tooth loss. Implant-supported dentures rarely need adjustments because they help retain jawbone density.
