What Are the Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?
Dental implants and dentures are two of the most common dental treatment options available. The treatment you choose depends upon the type of dental problem you are suffering from. An implant-supported denture is advised for those patients who don’t have any teeth but have enough bones in their jaw to support the implant. It’s a type of overdenture supported by and attached to implants.
Here are some important benefits of implant-supported dentures:
An implant-supported denture is generally more stable than any other conventional dentures. The reason is that unlike regular dentures, they are supported by implants. Therefore, they are more stable and durable compared to normal dentures. Implant-supported dentures are made usually for lower jaws because regular dentures tend to be less stable in lower jaws.
Ease While Eating
As these dentures are supported with implants, they give you freedom to eat anything you wish. Regular dentures are not stable enough that’s why doctors recommend patients to avoid hard, sticky, chewy substances or any food at an extreme temperature. But, if you have implant-supported dentures, it would not be difficult to eat and chew.
Comfortable in Daily Use
Implant-supported dentures are really comfortable while speaking, eating, or cleaning your teeth. Regular dentures have the risk of falling out of your mouth while implant-supported dentures will not become loose or fall out. Dentures not supported with an implant structure are uncomfortable. Implant-supported dentures are much more comfortable than regular dentures.
Implant-supported dentures help in many more ways than one could think!
