Over the years, conventional dentures can become loose. But did you know that you can get dentures that don’t fall out? By getting implant supported dentures, you don’t have to worry about adhesives or cleaning solutions; you just treat them like your natural teeth!
Conventional dentures become loose over time, as the bone in the residual ridge, which supports them, begins to shrink as you age. With dental implants, dentures are fastened to titanium roots planted firmly in your jaw bone. This makes them permanent and extremely durable. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth, making them an ideal solution for patients in need of multiple dental restorations. The implants also slow down the shrinkage of the bone, thus help to preserve the remaining ridge.
With implant supported dentures, a denture is made that “snaps” on and off 4 – 5 implants. The denture does not move and is like a part of your body. This is an excellent option for someone who wants a very long-lasting solution and doesn’t mind removing the denture to keep them clean.
Please read our Implants or Removable Dentures? question section for more information about which solution may be right for you.
