Why You Should Choose Implant Supported Dentures?

Posted on 4/26/2021 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
If you lose your teeth, there are various dental options that can help replace your teeth. The most common out of these are dentures, implant-supported dentures, and dental bridges. Out of these, the most effective and comfortable way to replace missing teeth is getting implant-supported dentures. Let's find out why. Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures Over Other Dental Replacement Options Implant-supported dentures treatment involves placing four to six implants into each arch that will provide support to removable overdentures. Here is why these overdentures are better for your oral health. Increased Comfort Implant-supported dentures are anchored by dental implants that have been embedded in the jawbone. This offers more stability to your overdentures and allows you to eat all your favorite food, speak easily, and smile with confidence. With traditional dentures, many people are unable to chew all kinds of food comfortably. These dentures also slip and slide in the mouth when a person is eating, speaking, or smiling. Dental bridges also do not offer superior stability and they need to be placed with careful consideration since they are prone to fractures. Preservation of Tooth Health Dental implants are stand-alone prosthetics which means they do not impact the health of any remaining teeth in your mouth. Dental bridges, on the other hand, are anchored into place by dental crowns or natural teeth. If the bridge is supported by dental crowns, it means the healthy teeth were eroded down to accommodate the crown. If they are supported by a framework that bonds to the back of the teeth, dental bridges can cause fractures of the enamel. Prevention of Bone Loss Implant-supported dentures use dental implants to replace the roots of missing teeth. This allows the jawbone to fuse to the implants. In addition, dental implants provide the necessary stimulation that is required for the jawbone to develop. Hence, your bone does not break down when you lose your natural teeth. In contrast, dentures and dental bridges do not provide enough stimulation to prevent bone resorption. As a result, people who use these prosthetics for a long time may experience facial collapse. Durability Implant-supported dentures are designed to last you for about 25 years. Titanium implants are very durable and do not rust. Depending on the place they are positioned, dental implants have a success rate of 88% to 98%. On the other hand, both dentures and dental bridges do not last very long. Dentures need to be relined, rebased, or completely replaced every few years, while dental bridges are prone to breakage. Hence, they should only be used as temporary measures. As you can see, implant-supported dentures are a perfect choice for people who want a more permanent solution to tooth loss. If you are interested in implant-supported dentures, schedule an appointment with Dr. Frank W. Sallustio or Dr. Sallustio at Frank W. Sallustio DDS, MS, FACP. Call us at (623) 738-2639 today....
