4 Benefits of Implant-Retained Dentures

If you have lost all of your teeth, an implant-retained denture can replace them. The implants are small posts that are surgically placed in your jawbone. Your denture will be fitted with a connector piece that fits over the posts to securely hold it in place. Implants help provide a more natural look and function than traditional dentures, giving you the ability to eat and speak more effectively.

Improved Comfort

The restoration process will leave you with a beautiful smile and improved comfort with artificial teeth that feel just like your natural teeth! Since dental implants are permanently placed, you don’t have to worry about the discomfort of a removable appliance slipping or sliding in your mouth. If an implant-supported denture slips out of place, it can be easily adjusted by your dentist. This makes wearing an implant-retained denture much more comfortable than a traditional removable prosthetic. Your jaw will be stronger and healthier without the pressure of supporting a full set of prosthetics, allowing you to enjoy a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Dental implants will not decay like natural teeth, so you can feel confident that your smile will remain beautiful and healthy for years to come. 

Better Speech

When dentures aren’t secured firmly in your mouth, they can slip and slide around, making speech difficult. This can lead to mumbling or slurring your words. Over time, your speech can deteriorate to the point where it’s difficult for others to understand you. However, implants are placed within the bone of your jaw, which helps keep them from slipping out of place. This helps patients speak clearly and confidently. Plus, with implants in place, there’s less chance of developing problems with chewing or biting your food. So you won’t have to avoid certain foods or chew them in ways that might be hard on your facial structure. With dentures that fit perfectly, you can bite into an apple or a juicy steak with ease. And you won’t have to worry about any embarrassing situations involving your dentures falling out of your mouth while you’re enjoying a meal!

More Stability

While traditional dentures are designed to rest on top of the gums, implant-retained dentures are firmly anchored into place. This keeps patients from worrying about their teeth shifting around while they’re talking or chewing food. Instead, they can feel confident in their smile’s appearance and functionality.

Since implant-retained dentures aren’t removable like traditional dentures, it becomes easier to eat the foods you love without worrying so much about your teeth slipping out of place. Patients also don’t have to worry about their dentures popping out when they eat or laugh. They can enjoy their favorite meals without worrying about any embarrassing mishaps.

Plus, dental implants can support areas of the jawbone that may have been damaged due to tooth loss. Their roots act as an anchor for surrounding bone cells and encourage new tissue growth. Over time, this can help fill in sunken areas where bone tissue may have diminished during a patient’s years of missing teeth. This gives the patient’s face a more full and youthful appearance.

Durability

Your implant-retained dentures are extremely durable, and you’ll be able to eat your favorite foods without fear of damaging them. This also means that your denture will last you a long time if cared for properly.

Even if you’re an avid snacker or lover of chewy foods like candy, hard candies, nuts, and popcorn, you can eat with these dentures in comfort.

With other denture options, the clasps or fixatives may break when eating certain foods. These dentures will not. In fact, the implants in your gums actually help to reinforce the gum and bone around them. You’re less likely to suffer from jawbone deterioration due to missing teeth with this type of denture.
