Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures are a type of “overdenture” that is supported by anchors that have been implanted into the jawbone. Traditional dentures rest on the gums and have no anchor to support them or stabilize them. Implant supported dentures are a restorative dentistry treatment for individuals who have no teeth in one or both jaws. While traditional dentures have long been used to replace a full set of missing teeth, they often slip while people try to speak or eat. This can cause many people to feel self-conscious and embarrassed, and it can prevent them from eating a nutritious and well-rounded diet.
Implant supported dentures act as lifelike replacements for missing teeth that are much more economically feasible for many people than individual dental implants. Implant supported dentures are complete dentures that are held securely in place by anchors in the jaw. This is an ideal solution for patients who are missing many or all of their teeth but who still have enough jawbone to support the titanium implants. Implant supported dentures can – and should – be taken out of the mouth for cleaning and maintenance.
