Implant Supported Dentures Can Help You Smile and Chew Normally Again!
Dental implant supported dentures can be a life-changer! Traditional dentures are held in place with an adhesive or suction that doesn't keep the dentures form slipping and moving, whereas implant-supported dentures connect onto the implants for a very secure fit. The bottom arch of teeth tend to be less stable that the top arch so implant dentures are especially attractive for people who are replacing their bottom arch. The stability that dental implants provide will also allow you to reintroduce tougher & harder foods back into your diet.
The Benefits of Dental Implant Supported Dentures
More Natural Looking – Dentures that are placed over dental implants look, feel, and function more like your natural teeth. The denture is securely anchored to the implant which allows you to smile and chew just as you would with your natural teeth.
No Movement – When dentures are anchored to dental implants, they will not move, which is not the case with removable dentures. Removable dentures are fixed to the gums with adhesives that are not effective and will allow the dentures to slip which will affect your smile and ability to chew.
Improved Chewing Ability – With dental implant retained dentures, you’ll chew just like you would with natural teeth.
A Bit About Dental Implants
A dental implant is a very strong substitute to replace missing tooth roots and is a common dental restoration technique that Dr. Netzley has performed many times at his dental office here in Fresno.
A dental implant is generally made of titanium and comes in various shapes and sizes to fit the situation. Most are cylinders placed into bone and allowed to heal undisturbed while the bone heals around them. The implants are used as a foundation for replacing a missing tooth and for securing dentures and partials.
Dental implant-supported dentures are a more permanent & secure solution for replacing your missing teeth, and are a procedure we've performed many times here at our dental practice in Fresno.
