Implant-supported dentures provide an excellent alternative for missing teeth. A gapped smile may cause feelings of stress, anxiety, and even embarrassment in some people. The implants hold the dentures securely and firmly in place, giving the appearance of a whole, healthy smile. Implants are permanent so that you can enjoy the benefits of implant-supported dentures for the rest of your life.

At Silver Firs Dental, we provide our patients with implant-supported dentures to give them a reliable and solid alternative to dentures, dental bridges, and traditional dental implants. 

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures use dental implants to anchor the device in place. The stability of the denture can be enhanced by using about two to four implants. Besides enhanced strength, these dentures improve; speech, chewing, and overall oral health. They also reduce gum irritation and provide greater comfort.

What Are the Merits of Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures provide a comfortable and long-lasting solution to replace your missing teeth. Some of their merits include the following:

  •  There will be no restrictions on your food choices.
  • It helps to prevent bone tissue loss since the implants will stimulate your gums.
  • Gum irritation associated with conventional dentures is eliminated
  • There is no risk of the dentures falling out
  • There are no adjustments required with these prosthetics
  • Taking care of these dentures is no different from taking care of your natural teeth
  • They look natural and improve facial aesthetics
  • They prevent the shifting of the teeth
  • Oral health is improved

What Is the Process For Implant-Supported Dentures?

Before we can start the actual procedure, we will systematically examine your gums to make sure that you do not have any gum disease that needs to be treated. In case you have an infection, we will treat it first before going ahead. Next, we will take X-rays to determine your jawbone density and find out if it is sufficient for supporting the implants. We will then capture an impression of your mouth along with other measurements. These details will be sent to the lab so they can fabricate your new set of artificial teeth to our precise specifications.

When it is time for the implant process, we will first numb your gums by providing local anesthesia. Then, we will surgically place four small implants under your gum line. These implants will serve as support for your new set of teeth. Once they are firmly in place, we can snap in your dentures. These implants will help provide a firm foundation for your dentures to stay in place.
