Implant Supported Dentures
Many people with traditional dentures suffer from complications such as slippage, the inability to eat certain foods, and bothersome adhesive gels and oral glues. Thanks to advancements in reconstructive dentistry, Dr. Ed Romano and Dr. Matthew Vaccaro offer a more stable and aesthetic-pleasing denture option called implant supported dentures. Also known as mini dental implants or implant anchored dentures, the technique can be a great option to restore both form and function to your teeth.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Our doctors make it their mission to utilize the most beneficial techniques to enhance the lives of our patients. Implant supported dentures can offer a number of advantages, including:
- Greater stability – The dentures have a significantly reduced chance of slipping and shifting while you eat or talk.
- More natural look and feel – The dentures are precisely aligned and shaped specifically to fit your mouth.
- No gels and glues – Because they are implanted, there is no need for adhesives to hold them in place
- Patients who have less than adequate jawbone density for a full dental implant procedure may be candidates for implant supported dentures
The Implant Supported Denture Procedure
Implant supported denture procedures can often be performed during a one-time, minimally-invasive treatment. Rather than bonding to the jawbone like full dental implants, the small titanium rods are inserted into the gum tissues and act as a root to hold the dentures in place. The dentures are then connected to the tips of the implanted rods resulting in much greater stability. Sutures are generally unnecessary and recovery time is usually minimal. The implant supported dentures are long-lasting and can be a great alternative to traditional dentures.
