Implant-Supported Dentures Scottsdale, AZ
What are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant supported dentures are a great compromise between a conventional denture that uses adhesive and the more expensive full-arch dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are a helpful solution for individuals who seek more stability than an adhesive denture but want to save on the expense of other full arch implant options. Implant-supported dentures are sturdy and do not slip or slide when you smile and eat.
Who is a Candidate for Implant-Supported Dentures?
Any dental patient in need of replacing an entire row of teeth is the right candidate for dentures. However, when evaluating the specific type of denture to use – it’s best to consult with Dr. Sheth. After a complete examination, including a 3d scan of your gums and jaw, Dr. Sheth can determine the best type of dentures or implant treatment to suit your goals, budget, and lifestyle.
Generally, implant-supported or snap-on dentures are an excellent solution for patients seeking to save costs but still achieve stability in their dentures. To utilize an implant for support, the patient must have generally healthy and ample jaw bone structure for the implant to attach to. For patients that do not have comprehensive bone structure, we may still recommend implant-supported dentures; however, Dr. Sheth may recommend bone grafting or similar procedures in advance to achieve optimal results.
The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
Using implant supported dentures, patients can improve their diets and feel confident eating a wider variety of foods. With traditional adhesive dentures, patients are limited in their food choices and cannot eat incredibly crunchy or chewy foods such as raw carrots, apples, or steak. In addition to feeling more confident eating and dining out, implant-supported dentures also significantly improve patients’ confidence to laugh and speak without fear of denture slippage.
From an oral health perspective, implant-supported dentures are comfortable to keep clean, thereby making it easy to remove bacteria and debris that can cause other health concerns. Implant-supported dentures also help preserve gum tissue and jaw bone structure better than traditional dentures.
