As we grow up, our daily habits change along with our physical appearance. Losing teeth is common, but also something very hard to face. Not being able to eat the food you love is a huge disadvantage, and to overcome this problem you may need dentures or better yet, an implant supported denture. Both improve the look of your smile but, what’s the difference? We invite you to find out.
What Is an Implant Supported Denture?
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. While an implant supported denture does not only rest on your gums, it’s also supported by and attached to implants.
An implant supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. They are usually made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there.
A regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is very stable on its own and doesn't need the extra support offered by implants. However, you can receive an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw.
What are the benefits?
An implant supported denture provides constant stimulation to the jawbone, which will help protect against future bone loss. Is more stable than a regular denture, improving your ability to chew, eat, and speak. Plus, you’ll have the confidence to do all of those things without worrying that your prosthetic teeth might slip or move. Also, you’ll be getting back your joy and beautiful smile.
Removable dentures are more fragile and it is easier to lose them. They are more visible and easier to detect compared to an implant supported denture.
Am I a Candidate?
If you have strong jaw bones and enough bone, then you can qualify for an implant supported denture. But to get the right answer, your first step should be a consultation with your dentist or an oral surgeon, whom will order X-rays to determine if there's enough bone, he will let you know if you’re a candidate for the procedure or which treatment suits you best.
An implant supported denture has special attachments that can snap to abutments set on your implants. Plus, if you still have teeth in your jaw, your implant supported denture will set more firmly and provide much better support covering your daily dental needs.
