Answering Questions About Implant Dentures

Posted August 18, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental

People who are searching for a solution to their tooth loss issues may be familiar with what dental implants can do for them. Simply put, implants act like your own tooth roots would, anchoring your prosthetic to your jawbone and providing stability and enduring support. However, you may be unsure about having implants to support your restoration, particularly if you are looking for help supporting a set of dentures. After all, if implants act like an artificial tooth root, how can a sequence of them hold a prosthetic that spans your upper or lower arch? What you should know is that with a sequence of mini-implants, you can enjoy securely placed dentures that do not require suction or epoxies.

How Do I Qualify For Implant Dentures?

Before recommending the placement of implants, your dentist will need to check on your candidacy. This will involve looking out for any active issues threatening your oral health, and ensuring your jawbone is strong enough for implant placement. You will also need to be healthy enough to undergo oral surgery.

How Will Implant Dentures Affect My Day To Day Life?

With implant support, your dentures are locked into place on a sequence of mini-implants. This eliminates any need to trust epoxies or suction to hold them in place, and it can improve their overall stability. It can also protect you against a wearing down of your jawbone, an issue that can be caused by standard dentures.

Will Implant Dentures Affect My Oral Health?

Implants can help you sustain better jaw health by protecting you against a deterioration of the bone. This can protects your oral health, while also protecting you against developing a “sunken” in your face, which can be a problem for patients with other prosthetics.
