What Are Denture Implants?

If you’ve got dentures, it’s likely you’ve experienced the discomfort that can occur with frequent wear. This is why many people look for alternative options, such as denture implants. Denture implants are a supportive, comfortable replacement to traditional dentures. Not only are denture implants aesthetically pleasing, but they also eliminate common problems people may have with classic dentures.

What Are Denture Implants?

When it comes to replacing missing or damaged teeth, there are several options to consider. However, denture implants are one of the most common solutions. These type of implants hold your dentures in place for improved comfort and feel.

The Benefits Of Denture Implants

There are many reasons people opt for dentures when researching denture implants, such as:

 

  • They can last a lifetime
  • Extremely natural looking
  • Alleviates the tendency to choke or gag thanks to the smaller, securer fit
  • Helps to maintain the jaw bone and face structure
  • They prevent bone loss that occurs when teeth are missing
  • Can prevent wrinkles around the mouth
  • No need for denture adhesive

 

One of the biggest benefits of denture implants is that your ability to eat normally will be restored. Classic dentures can be embarrassing and difficult during mealtimes, often people can even be afraid to eat in social situations. In fact, those with dentures can tend to miss out on key nutrients because they stick to soft foods. Fortunately, this isn’t the case with denture implants. With denture implants you’ll be able to eat whatever you want, without any repercussions.  

Implant Retained Dentures vs Implant Supported Dentures

What are denture implants? Well, there are two types to consider. The first are implant retained dentures, attached to small implants in the jawbone to keep them in place. They’re a secure option, giving you more confidence when eating food and when in public, as you will have less difficulty with speaking, eating and swallowing.

 

Secondly, there are implant supported dentures. They are similar to implant retained dentures, but are permanently fixed in place by your dentist – so there’s no need to remove them and clean them each night. They will feel more like natural teeth, and are popular with those looking for implants but don’t wish to have all on 4 dental implants.
