Need Dentures? Implant Supported Dentures may be a Solution for You
Are you currently considering implant supported dentures because you are in need of new dentures? It is a good idea for you to look into all of your denture choices as this is the only way for you to be sure that you are making the right decision for your denture needs. The majority of people who are in need of dentures need them so that they can improve their overall dental health. Because modern advances in dentistry allow for a few different options when you are in need of dentures, it is vital for you to consider all of the denture options available to you.
Why choose implant supported dentures?
Implant supported dentures are often chosen over traditional dentures because implants can keep the dentures exactly where they are supposed to be at all times. While traditional dentures are still a popular choice amongst those who need to wear dentures now, the fact that these type of dentures can move around in the mouth and even fall out of the mouth has new denture wearers looking into their other denture options. It is essential for denture wearers to feel comfortable when wearing their dentures, as they will play a critical part in their everyday functions.
Also known as implant retained dentures, when someone chooses this particular type of denture they will need to have small titanium posts surgically placed into their jaw. The dentures will connect to these posts, which is what keeps them securely in place. Depending on the patient's specific needs will determine how many posts will need to be surgically implanted into someone’s mouth, with four or eight posts being quite common.
Because the posts are surgically connected to the jawbone there is a lesser chance of jawbone loss, another benefit that comes with choosing this type of denture. The posts can stimulate the blood flow in these areas once again, which is stopped as soon as someone loses a tooth. When traditional dentures are used, the blood flow to the gums and jaw area is not supported, which means that over time this area will begin to deteriorate due to bone loss.
