Implants are used when there are no teeth left, while implant-retained dentures are designed to replace one or more missing teeth. They use special attachments so the denture can cling onto the implant and strengthen your dentures. Additionally, it is one of the most natural-looking alternatives for you. It is an ideal replacement for tooth loss as:
Both aesthetically pleasing and functional
Increase the stability of your dentures
Preserve the structure of your mouth
Peace of mind while eating and talking
Dentures over implants can give an individual confidence as the implants afford the denture greater stability. Depending on the needs of the individual, two or more implants may be required.
Dentures anchored on implants will stay in place as the implants are firmly attached to the bone with a surgically-fixed foundation. To receive implant-retained dentures, you need to have healthy tissues and sufficient jawbone. So it is crucial to first consult with your dentist to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. To know if dentures on implants are the right option for you, talk to Barbara today!
