Why Implant Supported Dentures are Superior to Traditional Dentures

Why are Implant Supported Dentures Superior To Traditional Dentures?

  1. Comfort:  Implant-supported dentures, sometimes called all-on-4, are hands-down more comfortable than traditional dentures because they are secured in place by four or more dental implants. These all-on-4 dentures look, feel and function like natural teeth. While patients with traditional dentures often suffer pain and mouth sores, these problems are eliminated with implant supported dentures.
  2. Confidence. You can be more confident when you speak, laugh and eat because you don't have to worry about your false teeth slipping or falling out. 
  3. No Denture Adhesives. There is no need for denture adhesives to keep your denture in place.
  4. Eat All the Foods You Love.  While your diet may be restricted from certain foods with traditional dentures, it is not with implant supported dentures. Enjoy apples, corn on the cob, steak, popcorn, nuts and more!
  5. Appearance.  Your implant supported dentures look, feel and function like your natural teeth.  Because the implant stimulates your jaw bone and prevents bone loss, you are less likely to experience significant bone loss which can affect the shape of your face.

                  This xray shows how dentures causes bone loss while implants reduce bone                    loss.   You can see the dental implants placed on the patient's lower right                          prevented much bone loss whereas the partial dentures on the patient's lower left side allowed a great deal of bone loss.

Do Implant Supported Dentures Cost More?

Yes. Implant supported dentures are the priciest way to replace your missing teeth. The benefits, however, are clear. Your implant supported denture provides stability, restores confidence in your smile, allows freedom in your diet, prevents jaw bone loss, and with proper care should last a lifetime.  It is the closest restoration to having your natural teeth back.
