Did you know that there are several benefits of dentures on implants ? Here at Smile Denture and Implant Clinic we see many dentures on implants patients. They all report excellent outcomes from our customized denture implant treatment in coordination with our dental surgeon partners.
How Do Dentures on Implants Work?
There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. In both cases, the denture will be made of an acrylic base that will look like gums. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look like natural teeth are attached to the base. Both types of dentures need at least two implants for support. There are two types of dentures on implants: bar-retained implant dentures and ball-retained implant dentures. You can speak with our friendly denturist to find out more about the process, treatment duration and cost of dentures on implants.
Now, here are 3 major benefits you can expect to see from having a denture implant treatment.
1. Looking Younger
While any dental procedure aimed at replacement of your missing teeth will improve your appearance, denture implants benefits go a step further. Because dental implants are the best available substitute for natural teeth, you will feel as if your natural teeth have been restored. Not only will you feel that but your jaw bone will begin to assimilate with your dental implants treating them as your own teeth! The major advantage of dental implants is that they are implanted, hence they do not move around. Because jaw will treat dental implants as your own, natural teeth this will prevent further bone loss, which in turn helps maintain youthful appearance. Bone loss is less prominent with dentures on implants than any other traditional dentures. This is especially important when all of the teeth are missing, because the lower one-third of the face often collapses if implants are not placed to preserve the bone levels.
2. Improved Quality of Life
The first thing we notice about someone is their smile! Having teeth missing can make you feel self-conscious. Your quality of life will improve significantly with denture on implants as you will have replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. Most of all dental implants allow you to smile, talk and eat with renewed confidence! You no longer have to worry about your dentures falling out accidentally while having fun. The best part about our dentures on implants is that they will look as natural that many won’t be able to tell that you are wearing them!
3. Preserving Jaw Bone
With denture implants, your mouth will be restored as closely as possible to its natural state. Another major benefit of denture implants is that they help you preserve your jaw bone and prevent further deterioration. This is not only healthy for your mouth, but it can improve your facial structure. If you are missing some or all natural teeth your bone loss is imminent. This is because your body can sense if your jawbone doesn’t need to support teeth any longer, so it will begin to pull tissues. This can create a deformed look with sunken in jaw, adding years to your appearance. What is more when bone loss is severe; your chance of having a successful dental implant procedure diminishes significantly.
