Implant Dentures Q & A

What are implant-supported dentures?

Dental Implants are small medical-grade titanium posts that serve as tooth root replacements and are screwed into your jawbone at the places where your teeth are missing or have been extracted, providing better stabilization.

Your dentures are then attached to these dental implants, preventing the loose or shifting feeling that often plagues patients with dentures. With a set of durable dental implants, your dentures look, feel, and function more like your natural teeth.

What are the benefits of implant-supported dentures?

When you have your natural teeth a bone in your jaw helps hold and support those teeth. If your natural teeth have been removed, your body realizes that the bone is no longer necessary, and over time it will begin to recede.

One option is to put something back into the bone. For this, we recommend dental implants, which will preserve your natural bone, so you don’t lose the support that helps to keep your face looking more youthful. Implants support your denture, keeping it stable and eliminates the movement and floating that can occur after several years of wearing regular dentures. Dental implants can be a great option for many patients.

Implant-support dentures function just like your natural teeth. To find out if they are the right tooth-replacement option for you, call Berlanga Dentures or book an appointment online today.

 

 

Dentures may replace all or only some of the teeth. The dentures that replace all the teeth are known as complete dentures and they rest on the gums that cover the jawbones. The stability and retention of these dentures can be improved by attaching them to dental implants. Dentures that replace some but not all the teeth are known as partial dentures. They attach to the teeth that are still present, and cover and rest on the tissue and bone where the teeth are missing. Dental implants can also be used to restore and stabilize partial dentures as well.
