What Is an Implant Supported Denture?
Implant Supported Denture is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Dentures are unsecured prostheses with very limited success. Most often, dentures are painful, inconvenient, and unstable. Such dentures can make chewing foods difficult limiting the foods that you once enjoyed.
How Does It Work?
Modern dentistry can help with the Implant Supported Denture. The Implant Supported Denture treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a complete denture supported by a minimum of four implants on the upper jaw and two on the lower jaw. With fewer implants needed, overall treatment time and cost are reduced. This technique also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.
Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist will place the prosthesis. Your quality of life is improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
A Cost-Effective Solution
Your new replacement teeth require only 4 implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.
Faster Treatment and Healing Time
In select cases, your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
Scientifically Proven and Documented
Implant Supported Dentures have a great rate of success and patient satisfaction. The positive clinical outcomes are supported by the literature with over a decade of clinical research.
