The Advantages of Implant-Retained Dentures

Are you trading your traditional dentures for implant-stabilized dentures?

Implant-retained or implant-stabilized dentures both provide various benefits over traditional dentures.

Secure in the mouth—no slipping

Provides up to 100% natural chewing function

Upper denture doesn’t cover as much of the palate

This helps users taste food more easily. (Hooray!)

More comfortable

When dentures are fixed in place, they don’t slip around, allowing the wearer to feel more confident in social or professional situations.

Little or no gum irritation

Mouth sores lower quality of life and can make eating painful.

Doesn’t impair speaking power

Denture wearers understand how frustrating it is to not be able to speak appropriately. With implant-stabilized dentures, you can regain ease of talking and laughing.

Stronger

Implant-retained dentures are strong and long-lasting.

Prevents bone loss

When bone recedes, you can get that “sunken face” look. Nothing ages a man or woman more than hollowed out cheeks.

Allows wearer to eat any type of food

Has it been a while since you’ve taken a bite of a juicy steak or crisp, red apple? It’s time to enjoy your favorite foods again!

No adhesive required

You won’t miss gluing your dentures into your mouth.

What Are The Differences Between Fixed and Removable?

Fixed implant-retained dentures (sometimes called screw-in) necessitate more implants than the removable type. However, they can restore 100% chewing capacity.

Removable implant dentures (sometimes called snap-in) may require just 4 implants to stabilize the upper arch and just 2 for the lower denture. Removable implant-stabilized dentures can restore up to 90% of chewing ability.

Should I get removable or fixed implant-anchored dentures?

The following factors will impact your choice.

Bone Health

Implants require the patient has sufficient amount of healthy bone structure for placement. The condition of your jaw bone influences whether it can support implants and where the posts can be inserted.

Price

Fixed implant dentures cost more but some men and women believe the advantages outweigh the extra expense.

Convenience

Fixed implant-stabilized dentures don’t have to be taken out for cleaning. Patients who have found it inconvenient to clean standard dentures would face the same issue with removable implant-retained dentures.

Preferred Foods

Fixed dentures are sturdier than removable dentures. Patients who prefer foods that are harder to chew should consider this.

Sleep Conditions

Men and women with TMJ or sleep apnea may find it harder to manage these conditions if they have to remove their dentures at night.

Now, denture wearers have an amazing new tooth replacement option.
