Dentures can be supported with dental implants to become very stable retentive dentures that does not move while eating or speaking.
Implants are screw-fixed surgical devices that are fused with jaw bone in order to anchor a dental prosthesis.
Implant-supported Dentures can be the solution for those who have an unfavourable ridge/gum that does not hold the denture in place or for those who want fixed-like prostheses so that they can bite better!
Are you having a trouble with your denture?
- Because the lower denture lifts up, tilts, or even pops out when you speak and eat?
- Is your upper denture always drop down and so difficult to make them stay up still?
- Have you lost your appetite after having a full denture?
- Is your gum reacting to the denture material that is covering the palate of your mouth?
- Do you want to feel more food sensation and taste of food when eating?
All of these common denture problems can be solved by having implant-supported dentures.
Advantages of Implant-supported denture:
1. Most stable denture:
Implant denture can be very stable due to the mechanical retention provided by the implants. Implant denture is clicked onto the implant attachments by simply pressing it towards your gum.
2. Improved eating:
You don’t have to worry about your teeth popping out or dropping down when eating. Stiff and sticky foods are no longer your problems!
3. More food sensation and taste:
With Implant dentures, you get more food sensation and taste due to the minimal coverage of palate. You can feel the warmness or coldness of food and feel the texture of food particles for more deliciousness...
4. Improved speaking:
Implant denture is more stable than conventional acrylic denture and only minimal palate is covered therefore it is much easier to adapt and you can speak as normal as before!
5. Natural dentition feel:
Implant denture feels more like your own teeth due to implants embedded inside the jaw bone. You can feel the pressure biting down onto your jaw bone.
You need a Bone Check to discuss your option further.
