Your Denture Implant Options

These days there are countless options for those who need dentures. So although the more conventional choices may still work for many, there’s no reason to limit your choices if you’re not happy with the results. Implant supported over dentures are a good example of ingenuity updating an old model to make them more preferable to a wider group of people.

Most people who turn to implant supported over dentures either had experience with other types or would have been considered candidates for them had a dental professional not stepped in. These two other types of dentures are complete dentures or removable partial dentures.

Compared to those two popular types, implant supported denture wearers don’t suffer from bone loss as much, and either reduce or completely eliminate prosthesis movement. That’s not all though. Most consider their overall look more realistic and appealing. Part of this is because implant supported over dentures can provide better tooth position. Lastly, one issue people often have with their dentures is with occlusion. A lot of times, dentures fit fine until they need to come in contact with teeth on the other jaw. This feature, known as occlusion, is considered especially good with implant supported over dentures.

With implant supported over dentures, you can do away with traditional glues and paste materials. Surgical implants are loaded right into the wearer’s mandible. These titanium implants then connect with the over dentures, holding them flush to the skin when worn. Although they’re easily removed, once they’re in, no amount of yawning, chewing, talking, etc is going to separate them from the jawbone.
