Advantages of Implant Supported Dentures over Traditional Options

When faced with complete tooth loss, there are two replacement options available: traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures. Either of these prosthetic devices can restore function and beauty to smiles, but implant supported dentures provide additional advantages that make them an outstanding choice.

Many Advantages to Implant-Supported Dentures

Dental implants are permanently secured into the jaw bone, giving you function that is identical to natural teeth. You can resume a normal diet, chewing just as you always have. With traditional dentures that rely on adhesive paste, chewing can be a challenge. Sometimes the dentures slip out of place, and diets often need to be restricted.

Removable dentures sit on top of the gums and they cover the palate. Sometimes this makes speaking clearly difficult, and some people find the device creates a gag reflex. Implant-supported dentures look and feel like real teeth; there is no bulky covering of the palate, and the reliance on adhesive creams is eliminated.

Protection of Jaw Bone Health with Dental Implants

After tooth loss, the jaw bone atrophies due to a process called resorption. The lack of a tooth root denies the jaw bone of the stimulation it needs to remain healthy. The resorption process can have an effect on a person’s appearance as well. The mouth takes on a sunken appearance, causing patients to look prematurely aged. With dental implants, the post fuses with the jaw, providing the necessary stimulus to keep the bone strong and healthy. Since the jaw bone’s density is stabilized, facial structure remains intact.
Bone resorption has other drawbacks. A denture that fits snugly in the mouth can become loose over time due to the continual shrinkage of the jaw bone. Your dentist can reline the denture to adjust to these changes, but eventually he may need to create an entirely new denture. This can be costly. Dental implant supported restorations cost more initially, but they have a 95% success rate and can last a lifetime.
