How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?

Why Choose Implant-Supported Dentures?

Achieve Better Stability and Oral Health

Patients can experience far better stability with implant-supported dentures. Because the implant replaces the tooth root, it keeps the denture firmly in place at all times. No more muddled speech, no more having to cut food into tiny pieces, and no more having to suffer with the annoying and painful friction of loose dentures!

Prevent Jawbone Atrophy

The teeth serve several important purposes, including stimulation and retention of jawbone tissue. In simple terms, when the tooth roots are missing, the jaw will begin to shrink. This is why traditional dentures have to be frequently adjusted. Dental implants provide the necessary stimulation to your jaw, making them the one and only dentistry solution that can prevent jawbone atrophy after tooth loss.

Maintain a More Youthful Appearance

A side-effect of lost teeth and resulting bone loss in the jaw is changing facial features, such as sunken-in cheeks and puckered lips, a more pointed chin, and movement of remaining natural teeth. Implant dentures can prevent these issues.

 Frequently Asked Questions About Implant-Supported Dentures

Enlighten Dental in Vancouver is a practice that believes in the value of patient education. During your consultation, you can expect that Dr. Sam Paulos will take all the time needed to answer your questions. In the meantime, here are some answers to common questions about implant-supported dentures:

How many implants will I need?

In most cases, supporting a full denture on the upper or lower dental arch will require your dentist to place six to eight dental implants.

How do I maintain my implant-supported dentures?

It's easy - in fact, it's not much different than caring for your natural teeth. Brush twice each day, floss at least once a day, and make certain that you attend regular dental checkups with your dentist at our Vancouver, BC, practice.

How long will the results last?

With proper care, it's reasonable to expect that your dental implants will last 40 years or more. However, the denture will require eventual replacement. During each regular checkup, we will assess the condition of your denture and determine when you are in need of a replacement.

Are dental implants worth the investment?

If you are tired of constantly needing denture adjustments, having your dentures slip out of place when speaking and eating, and dealing with the discomfort of unstable dentures, the answer is probably "yes." Meanwhile, because a denture supported by implants will require far fewer  adjustments (if any), this solution can actually save time and money over the years.
