Implant Dentures

The integration of implants with dentures is the latest advancement in tooth replacement options and has greatly improved the functionality of dentures. 

Implant-supported prostheses rely on metal copings and nylon housings to retain the denture in the mouth. This is a much more secure method of retention than relying on suction like with normal dentures.

Implant dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures or overdentures, are a modern and advanced solution for replacing missing teeth. Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums or rely on adjacent teeth for support, implant dentures are secured in place by dental implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone.

While the process of receiving implant dentures typically involves multiple appointments and a healing period following implant placement surgery, many patients find that the benefits far outweigh the initial investment of time and effort. With their exceptional stability, natural appearance, and long-term functionality, implant dentures offer a transformative solution for individuals seeking to restore their smile and regain confidence in their oral health.

Benefits of Implant Dentures include;

  • Preservation of Bone Health: Dental implants stimulate the underlying jawbone, helping to prevent bone loss and maintain bone density over time. This can preserve facial structure and prevent the sunken appearance often associated with tooth loss.
  • Natural Appearance: Implant dentures are designed to closely resemble natural teeth and gum tissue, providing a lifelike and aesthetically pleasing smile.  The custom-made prosthetic teeth are meticulously crafted to match the shape, size, and color of the patient's natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with the smile.
  • Longevity and Durability: With proper care and maintenance, implant dentures can last for many years, offering a long-lasting solution for tooth replacement. The durable materials and secure attachment to dental implants contribute to their longevity and resilience.
