Implant Retained Dentures
Implant retained dentures
If many or all of your teeth are missing, this may have an impact on your life. The most obvious and effective way to solve the problem of missing teeth is to get dentures fitted. Though for many denture wearers, the experience of having dentures is not as good as they may have hoped it would be. The biggest complaint people with dentures have is that they slide and slip around in the mouth, which not only makes it hard for them to speak audibly and clearly, but it also makes it virtually impossible for them to eat harder foods.
What Are Implant Retained Dentures?
At Smiles on Hudson, we offer a different kind of denture service to people who have had a bad experience in the past. Implant retained dentures is as self-explanatory as it sounds and involves implants being used to not only stabilise dentures to prevent them from slipping and sliding around the mouth and causing disruption to everyday functions such as speaking and eating.
It should be noted though, that it does involve you having to undergo some oral surgery for the denture implants to be inserted into the jawbone appropriately.
The implants used are made from titanium as this has the capability of biologically merging with surrounding bone to make for a strong and permanent foundation that will support the denture implants themselves as well as the dentures.
Benefits Of Implant Retained Dentures
As they do not require as much bone for placement, they are a far less invasive procedure and you will not have to wait for a period of time for the denture to properly fuse with the bone surrounding it. As the use of mini implants negates the need to take a bone grafting, the recovery time and cost of the procedure are greatly reduced.
Because implant retained dentures have a more natural feel, they enable you to enjoy the food you like without compromise. As they can handle more pressure than ordinary dentures.
Not only are they more comfortable, but they do not require any dental adhesives to keep them in place. Because they don’t move around, you will not suffer from mouth sores and tender gums.
