Why You Should Consider Implant-Supported Dentures

Posted on 3/20/2023 by Evan
Why You Should Consider Implant-Supported DenturesDentures are a convenient and cost-effective option to replace a missing tooth. While they can help to improve your smile and the functioning of your mouth, they have disadvantages. Luckily, implant-supported dentures solve the limitations of this prosthesis. Here are 3 reasons why you should consider supporting your dentures with implants.

Preserve the Jaw

Tooth loss means that there are no roots to stimulate the jaw. This leads to jawbone loss, which can cause distortion of facial structures and affect the remaining teeth. While traditional dentures can help to replace the missing tooth, they do not replace the roots. They sit above the gum line. Hence, there will be no jawbone stimulation. However, this is not the case with implant-supported dentures. They replace the crown and roots, thus, stimulating the jawbone and preventing bone loss.


As you are aware, traditional dentures do not stimulate the jawbone. This leads to bone shedding, which, if left untreated, can make dentures to become loose. Nevertheless, supporting dentures with an implant prevents bone loss. With this, the prosthesis will remain stable without the need for adjustments. In addition, supported dentures are strong and durable. Hence, you will reduce the cost of replacement and regular visits.

Boost Self-Confidence

Dentures that fit properly can boost your self-esteem and allow you to eat with confidence. Unfortunately, traditional dentures that rest on top of the gum tissues can cause irritation and slippage. However, you can eliminate these disappointments and discomfort by stabilizing the dentures using dental implants. The supported dentures do not shift when eating or talking. This eliminates the embarrassing moments, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence.

In addition, the implant-supported dentures look more natural. With this, you will not have to hide your smile in public. Schedule an appointment with our dentists to find out more about implant-supported dentures.
