Implant Supported Dentures Katy TX
Benefits Of Implant-Supported Dentures
Dentures anchored directly to the jawbone provide functional and aesthetic benefits for patients that may include:
Secure And Easy To Maintain
Implant supported dentures are designed to be long lasting. Patients can speak and eat without worrying about the dentures shifting or slipping in the mouth.
The bone around the missing teeth is better preserved since the implants replicate the natural root of the tooth and stimulate its preservation. Bone loss is therefore greatly reduced.
Implant supported dentures can triple the force of the bite and restore chewing ability comparable to that of natural teeth. Implant supported dentures are stronger and more secure than traditional dentures and make biting and chewing less difficult.
With implants anchoring the denture, it is not necessary to fully cover the roof of the mouth. Patients have a better appreciation for the texture, temperature and taste of food.
Implant supported dentures eliminate the need for denture adhesives to help hold the denture in place. Since the dentures are secured by the implants, they stay secure and in place.
Implant Supported Denture Procedure
A thin metal bar in the shape of the jaw is attached to the implants that have been placed in the jawbone. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by clips or other attachments.
Each implant in the jawbone holds a metal attachment that fits into another attachment on the denture. In most cases, the attachments on the implants are ball-shaped and they fit into sockets on the denture.
Implant supported dentures are strong, secure, and help to regain nearly all the abilities patients had with their natural teeth.
