Eliminate Instability with Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures are a viable option for patients who currently wear dentures and want a more permanent solution or those who have missing teeth and need extra support with dentures. Dentures offer many benefits but many patients find that dentures slip around and cause some discomfort. Securing a set of dentures with dental implants can improve your smile, improve oral health and eliminate discomfort. Dr. Michael Rose is a dental implant specialist and offers implant supported dentures in our office.
How Implant Supported Dentures Work
The implant supported denture procedure involves fusing a set of dental implants around the jaw to serve as a foundation for a temporary set of dentures. The top of the implant is designed with a stud or ball attachment that securely fastens the denture. Once the implants are allowed to heal for a period of time, usually around three months, a permanent denture is attached. Implants, then, eliminate the need for adhesives and will not slip or move around when you eat or speak. Most dentures wearers say implant supported dentures are much more comfortable than the removable versions.Watch Video
