In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about implant-supported dentures.

What are Implant-Supported Dentures?

An implant-supported denture is a fixed denture appliance that replaces either the upper or lower arch of teeth. It’s supported by four or six dental implants that are deeply embedded in the jawbone, which provides the ultimate stability as you eat, smile, talk, and laugh.

What are the Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?

Even the best-fitting dentures will slip on occasion. That’s why many patients prefer the look and feel of implant-supported dentures. These appliances are anchored in place by four or six dental implants so your teeth will never move. Instead, they function like natural teeth so you can eat your favorite foods without the fear of your dentures slipping.

Another benefit of an implant-supported denture is that it exerts pressure on your jawbone, which helps to keep it healthy and intact. Otherwise, your body will absorb the minerals in your jaw to use elsewhere. If left untreated, jawbone deterioration can lead to a condition called facial collapse. Facial collapse makes it difficult or uncomfortable to wear dentures. It can also give your profile a sunken appearance.
