Implant Supported Dentures

Dr. Rana and staff examining x-ray at The Implant Center at Comprehensive Dental in Lincoln Park, NJ Implant-supported dentures are a dental solution for patients looking for a more stable and comfortable alternative to traditional, removable dentures. This dental restoration combines the benefits of dental implants with the convenience of dentures. It is a reliable and long lasting solution for missing teeth. However, implant-supported dentures only require a few strategically placed implants, usually four or six. This makes them the most efficient, and secure solution to restore full arches of teeth.

How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?

Traditional dentures rely on adhesives and suction to stay in place. Implant-supported dentures are anchored to dental implants placed into the jawbone that serve as artificial tooth roots. This provides a secure foundation for the dentures, and stimulates bone growth in the jaw. The dental implants integrate with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Bone density loss is a common issue with missing teeth that leads to changes in facial structure, but implant-supported dentures prevent this problem.

Types of Implant-Supported Dentures

The two most common types of implant-supported dentures are bar retained and ball retained. In the bar retained system, a thin metal bar is attached to the implants, and the denture is secured to the bar. In the ball-retained system, ball shaped attachments fit into a socket in the denture. Both systems offer excellent stability and support, but also allow dentures to be removed when necessary.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

One of the primary advantages of implant-supported dentures is their ability to restore the functions of natural teeth. There are no worries of the slippage while eating and speaking that comes with traditional dentures. In addition, implant-supported dentures are custom crafted to mimic the patient's natural teeth and fit their mouth perfectly. Traditional dentures may look artificial and may contribute to a sunken appearance due to bone loss in the jaw. But implant-supported dentures closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth and preserve the appearance of the face by stimulating the jawbone.

Another key benefit of implant-supported dentures is comfort. Traditional dentures are often uncomfortable and require adjustments. Implant-supported dentures eliminate these issues because they are anchored into place. Also, maintenance is simpler with implant-supported dentures. They are cleaned with the same brushing and flossing habits that are already routine. But traditional dentures require removal for cleaning and soaking. Also, the need for messy adhesives is eliminated. Implant-supported dentures require much less maintenance.

The upfront cost of implant-supported dentures is higher than traditional dentures, but many patients view that cost as an investment into their long term oral health. The durability and stability of implant-supported dentures provides increased satisfaction, as well as increased confidence while eating, speaking, and smiling.

It's important to note that the success of implant-supported dentures depends on multiple factors such as the patient's overall health, bone density, and oral hygiene habits.

Their stability, comfort, and natural appearance make them the preferred choice for patients seeking a long-term solution to tooth loss.
