Dentures have helped many individuals over the years, and they have served a valuable purpose in their ability to replace missing teeth. With that in mind, traditional dentures often have significant drawbacks, including the extra steps necessary to properly maintain them and the potential for slippage along the gums. Implant-supported dentures can offer an innovative remedy for these concerns, helping to stabilize dentures and allow them to serve as more comfortable, better-fitting artificial teeth.
Here at Edgemont Dental Clinic, our Edmonton dentists offer implant-supported dentures for patients looking for an alternative to traditional dentures or full sets of dental implants. This procedure can improve both the look and function of the teeth without some of the less desirable effects that can be caused by traditional dentures.
What are the advantages of implant-supported dentures?
With the enhanced security and stability of implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy a range of benefits that are not possible with other types of dentures. Some of the advantages of implant-supported dentures can include:
Reduction in the potential for movement and slippage along the gums
Clean process without messy adhesives or pastes
They function more like natural teeth
Improved chewing and speaking
Many patients can eat more of the food they want
Reduction in the potential for wear on the gums and bone loss
Easy to care for
What are implant-supported dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are missing teeth replacement options that utilize dental implants combined with a customized denture appliance to provide results that feel and function more like original teeth. Also commonly referred to as “implant dentures” or “implant-anchored dentures,” this treatment can be ideal for patients who are missing several teeth or all of their teeth. It requires only a select number of precisely placed implants, rather than a dental implant for each missing tooth, to yield effective results.
Are you a candidate for Denture Stabilization?
Many individuals who have missing teeth are often good candidates for implant dentures in Edmonton. Some of the factors that will be taken into account to determine your candidacy include: whether you have a sufficient amount of jawbone density to accommodate the implants; your present state of periodontal health; and your present state of general health.
