Having the confidence to share your best smile with the world is priceless! If you have teeth that are failing, you may not feel so confident about your smile.
Maybe you've been struggling with missing teeth and you're considering dentures. Or maybe you've been living with a denture that moves or slips when you talk or eat. Doylestown Dental Group would like to share some vital information about implant-supported dentures that could change your life!
What Is an Implant-Supported Denture?
Instead of relying on suction to your jawbone to stay in place, as with a removable denture, an implant-supported denture has the support of strategically placed dental implants that fuse and integrate with your bone. The denture is designed to snap onto the implants, which hold the appliance securely in place to avoid movement or slippage.
The Additional Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
A denture that is supported with dental implants also helps to keep your jawbone healthy. A traditional removable denture relies on the support of your jawbone, which puts extra pressure on it and causes bone loss gradually over time. Implant-Supported Dentures take that strain off your jawbone.
Dental implants fuse with your bone, which helps to stimulate bone regeneration and provide better long-term support for your denture. Implant-supported dentures also offer better longevity for your denture because you won't have to worry about relining it for fit, as you would with a traditional denture.
