What Are Permanent Denture Implants?
As you may already know, dental implants are a tooth replacement option designed to look and function just like natural teeth. They have other uses, however, such as supporting tooth crowns, multi-tooth bridges and even full fixed dentures. Permanent Denture Implants are the latter, as they use dental implants to support a permanent denture system for both upper and lower arches.
The Benefits of Permanent Denture Implants
There are several disadvantages to not replacing missing teeth or choosing traditional dentures. Bare gums make eating and speaking difficult, cause your facial structure to collapse over time, affect your physical appearance and impact your self-esteem. Traditional dentures share many of these disadvantages, including diet restrictions, discomfort and potentially embarrassing situations. Permanent denture implants negate many of these negatives, as they come with the following benefits:
– A secure, dental implant-based hold, but are still removable
– Easier to care for than other tooth replacement options
– Restore tooth function and appearance
– Prevent some bone loss and development of wrinkles
– More affordable than replacing all teeth with dental implants
These are just a few of the benefits of permanent denture implants. The only question left is determining whether they’re right for you.
Who Should Consider Permanent Denture Implants?
If you want to experience the security and health benefits of dental implants, yet would still prefer a removable tooth replacement solution, permanent denture implants may be your best option. As long as you have a healthy mouth with enough bone to support the implants (or would consider bone grafting), you’re an ideal candidate for permanent denture implants.
