Dentures have come a long way since their inception in 700 BC. We no longer use the a smorgasbord of animal and human teeth to create this prosthetics; however, dentures are not always the most secure tooth replacement available. Dentures have been known to fall out, slip during wear, and can even make eating a difficult task. These limitations can cause great frustration and embarrassment to the owner of said dentures. Luckily, with an implant-supported denture you can wear your dentures confidently. Your Rochester dentist can speak with you about this alteration to your dentures and improve your quality of life.
What’s an Implanted Denture?
If you’re a denture wearer, you already know the hassle of maintenance and everyday wear:
- Dentures often slip out of place creating issues when speaking and chewing.
- Traditional dentures become ill-fitting after a couple of years of wear.
- Reoccurring visits to the dentist for readjustments and alignments.
However, with an implant-supported denture, your dentures will remain securely in place without them slipping or falling. This solution can greatly improve your overall mouth function.
Is a Dental Implant Different from an Implanted Denture?
Now, while a dental implant is similar, it’s not identical to an implant-supported denture. With an implant-supported denture, a few titanium posts, throughout your mouth, to hold either the top or bottom portion of a full denture. A dental implant topped with a single crown replaces a single tooth. Dental implants isn’t a typical solution for a full denture wearer—it’s more fitting for a patient who’s only a few missing teeth.
