Implant Supportive Dentures
Dentures a solution used to replace missing teeth and the issues that come with having teeth that are missing. A denture not only is a replacement for the structure of the tooth but it also gives the function back to.
The main disadvantages to a to a denture can include: loose fit, feeling uncomfortable and feeling unstable when eating or speaking. Some patients have also reported speech impairment and not being able to taste food like they did before.
There are solutions to these problems! At Painfree Dentistry we offer a ‘Denture Implant’. A denture implant is a replacement option that uses dental implants to provide a foundation for dentures. Implants make the dentures stable and comfortable. This fixes problems with fit, stability and comfort. This form of treatment can also fix speech and taste issues. An implant supported denture is a shaped like a horse-shoe so a plate is not needed.
The dental implants anchor detachable replacement solutions so you can be confident that the denture won’t become lose or move around inside your mouth. Implant supportive dentures are the perfect solution for patients wanting to avoid discomfort, potential lisping and awkwardness when talking and eating that can occur with traditional dentures.
