What are Implant Supported Dentures?

If you’ve been told you need to extract multiple teeth or already have several that are missing, you may be wondering what your options are to replace them. An implant supported denture is one of the best options to provide you with a strong, stable smile. It combines both conventional dentures and implants for a secure, affordable smile restoration option.

The Implants

You may have heard of people getting single implants, but multiple implants can also be used to support a full-arch denture. The implants are inserted into the bone, similar to anatomical tooth roots. After a few months, they become fused into the bone. As few as 2 or 4 implants can be used as an anchor for your denture, eliminating the need for adhesives or pastes.

The Overdenture

Not all implant supported dentures are permanent. With a removable overdenture, you have the option of keeping it in or taking it out when needed. A custom made overdenture is fabricated and fitted with special mechanisms that allow the “plate” to be snapped securely over your implants.

Benefits of having a removable snap-on denture include:

  • Affordability
  • Comfort and security
  • Repairs and modifications are easier and simpler

Implant supported dentures allow people with tooth loss to improve their quality of life. They are able to expand their diet options without having to worry about their denture shifting or irritating their gums. The implants continue to promote bone regeneration and offer a fuller, smile reversing the sunken look that occurs when teeth are missing.
