If you’re looking to replace missing teeth, restore lost function, and improve the appearance of your smile, dental implants are an excellent solution. In case you aren’t familiar, a dental implant is a titanium post that is anchored in the jawbone. It effectively substitutes a lost tooth root and provides a secure base for dental restorations.
Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or every tooth in your mouth. You won’t necessarily need one implant for every tooth you have lost. Dr. Jorge Paez will strategically plan your treatment to ensure that it is both conservative and effective.
Often, replacing an entire arch of teeth requires just four to six implants. Instead of supporting a crown or bridge, the implants are used to support a denture.
Implant-Supported Denture vs. Traditional Denture
Implant-supported dentures can be a great way to replace all your teeth. They offer significant advantages over traditional adhesive dentures, which are known to have limitations.
Individuals who wear traditional dentures typically find it difficult to speak properly or eat certain foods. And because traditional dentures are prone to slippage, they can come loose in public and cause embarrassment. Additionally, this type of denture can sometimes have an awkward or uncomfortable fit. These factors make them a less than optimal solution for most patients.
Meanwhile, dentures that secure onto implants are far more stable and reliable. With implant-supported dentures, you can speak and chew normally. You will avoid the hassle, inconvenience, and discomfort commonly associated with adhesive dentures. Plus, implant-supported dentures have the added benefit of preventing jawbone loss and collapse.
For many patients who have lost all their teeth, implant-supported dentures are the ideal way to restore full function and aesthetics.
