Dental Implants are titanium screws implanted where a tooth root would have been and it is essentially the support for any tooth replacement procedure. In this case, for implant-supported dentures, you use the implant to help stabilize and align the denture during tasks such as talking, chewing, etc. But are they really worth it?
To be brief, yes they are. Dental Implants does wonders to keep your dentures from slipping and moving. In fact , having 4 dentures placed in the upper jaw can give you a chance to possibly remove the need for a palate of a full-denture. Also, obtaining 2 implants on the lower jaw will also make your jaw more robust and solid. Once you get implants placed into your mouth, your dentures will start feeling much more comfortable and natural like how your teeth originally were.
If you are interested in getting your implant faster and cheaper, a mini implant will do you well. These implants have the same functionality of a traditional implant; however, they are, as previously stated, more affordable and efficient for patients who only need it for dentures not just a single tooth replacement. Combining mini implants with denture attachments, will make your time with dentures much more comfortable and convenient. Attachments like implant bars or magnets can increase the stabilization of the entire denture making you feel like you have your natural teeth again!
In conclusion, implant-supported dentures are a great way to increase the effectiveness and comfort of dentures. If you are interested in acquiring dentures, then feel free to give Streamline Sunset Office a call at 702-660-2064 or visit our dental office 89014 now!
