4 Awesome Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures offer a number of benefits over traditional dentures. Here at Smile Denture and Implant Clinic in Ottawa, we offer personalized denture implant treatment plans. Here are the top five benefits patients with implant supported dentures report from our experiences.
#1 Confidence in Smiling, Speaking and Eating
Traditional denture wearers are sometimes conscious about their dentures falling out! Although rare, this can happen if the dentures do not fit properly. The biggest benefit of implant supported dentures is that they stay secure in place! This makes it impossible for them to fall out during smiling, speaking or eating. Patients report increase in confidence when wearing implant supported dentures.
#2 Improved oral health
Implant-supported dentures can also improve a patient’s oral health. Missing teeth are no fun, but the real problem with missing teeth is the underlying bone loss. When a patient loses their teeth, the jaw bone recognizes that it is no longer serving its purpose of supporting the tooth. As a result, the jaw bone begins to degenerate. Traditional dentures slow down the bone loss, however, dental implants do much better job! This is because over time, the jaw believes dental implants are real teeth!
#3 Improved Eating Comfort
Although traditional dentures will provide more biting force than a mouthful of missing teeth, implant-supported dentures bite is as close as it gets to natural teeth. Dentures that are anchored by dental implants will make it easier to eat crunchy, tough, and chewy foods. In addition, implant-supported dentures will not move out of place when eating.
#4 Improved Fit of Implant Denture
Traditional dentures will always feel like dentures that you can take out. Implant denture on the other hand is highly customizable. Once your dental implants heal, denturist will take an impression of the gums to ensure the optimal fit. Then, implant denture is secured in place, and it will stay in an ideal position permanently. You will never have to worry about taking them out or losing them! Moreover, you will never have to worry about shrinking gums and loose dentures. Dental implants support the implant-supported dentures and as a result, patients do not experience degeneration of gum tissue.
Lastly, the implant-supported dentures can increase a patient’s confidence level by improving the ability to eat and speak, as well as the appearance of the smile.
