Implant supported dentures are a popular treatment choice for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth and want a complete smile makeover. They are also a desirable upgrade for those who want to replace their traditional dentures with a sturdier, better-fitting appliance. If you have been wondering whether or not there is a better alternative to standard dentures, here are a few of the top reasons why implant supported dentures may be right for you.
Implant supported dentures provide the benefits of implants without the high cost. While it would be extremely expensive to replace an entire arch of missing teeth with single dental implants, implant supported dentures are more affordable. When compared with traditional dentures, they provide many more benefits for a slightly increased price.
When you are fitted with implant supported dentures, you don’t need to worry about keeping them in place with pastes or worrying about them falling out during dinner. The upper appliance is attached to strategically-placed implants that are embedded in the jaw, which means that the device will stay securely in place without any embarrassing slippage. Care for your implant supported dentures just like you would care for your natural teeth and they will remain brilliant and attractive for years.
Implant supported dentures are surprisingly natural looking and do not appear to float on top of the gums like traditional dentures. In fact, people may not even realize they are not your natural teeth unless you decide to tell them!
Implant supported dentures give you the freedom to eat your favorite foods without worry. Certain foods may need to be avoided while wearing traditional dentures, but implant supported dentures provide full functionality and give you freedom to eat many different food types.
