Compared to decades ago, denture technology has changed monumentally allowing patients to choose between removable or implant supported dentures.

Dental implants provide patients a permanent solution to missing teeth thanks to implant supported dentures. You may be surprised at the idea of implants for dentures, but denture implants have become one of those most common methods of smile restoration. Permanent dentures are quickly becoming the go-to technology for rejuvenating your smile.
Removable dentures are the most well-known and common form of dentures. Full or partial dentures are often chosen because they are budget friendly and less invasive than other alternatives. A full set of dentures completely replaces missing teeth, while partial dentures can fill in gaps of missing teeth and prevent natural teeth from shifting. Removable dentures are held in place by a temporary adhesive that must be applied before wear each day. Dentures need to be regularly cleaned and prepped for wear the following day. Patients with removable dentures often complain of their dentures shifting or feeling uncomfortable after extended wear. Over time bone loss is common and can begin to change your facial structure. As a result, your removable dentures may no longer fit correctly and need to be adjusted or replaced depending on how badly they are worn down. Dental Implants have allowed denture patients the permanent alternative of implant supported dentures. Daily struggles with adhesives and shifting while wear is no longer a concern thanks to implant supported dentures. Patients who opt for this method of treatment experience these three main benefits:
Dental implants mimic the structure of a natural tooth thanks to their three components: the post, abutment, and restoration. The post is placed directly into the bone acts like the root of a tooth creating stability for the restoration and stabilizing the surrounding bone. This stabilization is key in preventing any future bone loss that can affect facial structure and the shifting of any remaining natural teeth. The abutment extends from the post to beyond the gumline, acting as a connection between the post and the restoration. In the case of implant supported dentures, the abutment is the connection between your snap in denture and the post. Dental implants can be strategically placed to create the needed stability for your denture depending on whether it is a full or partial denture.
