Everything You Need to Know About Implant Supported Dentures
If you are missing all or most of your teeth, dentures can help restore your confidence, speech, and chewing function. However, wearing traditional dentures can be uncomfortable, unstable, and inconvenient at times. Fortunately, Implant supported dentures in Colorado Springs CO are now available to improve the fit, function, and appearance of traditional dentures. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about implant-supported dentures, including how they work, the benefits, the types, and the process of getting them.
How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?
Implant-supported dentures are a type of overdenture that is anchored to dental implants instead of resting on the gums. A dental implant is a small screw made of titanium that is surgically inserted into the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root. Once the implant fuses to the jawbone, a custom-made denture is attached to the implants using abutments or connectors. Implant-supported dentures can be removable or fixed, depending on the patient’s preference and oral health status.
What Are The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures offer several advantages over traditional dentures, including:
Implant-supported dentures do not shift or slip while eating, speaking, or laughing, as they are securely anchored to the implant posts.
Implant-supported dentures do not rub against the gums, causing irritation, soreness, or pressure points, which are common with traditional dentures.
Enhanced chewing function
Implant-supported dentures allow patients to bite and chew their favorite foods with more force and efficiency, as they function like natural teeth.
Implant-supported dentures can last for many years with proper care and maintenance, unlike traditional dentures, which may need frequent repairs or replacements.
