How Implant Supported Dentures Can Enhance Your Quality of Life

Are you considering implant-supported dentures? Here are some incredible ways this denture solution can enhance your quality of life.


Life can be very challenging when you have missing teeth and can pose difficulties that span many areas of everyday life.

In fact, patients who have one or more missing teeth often report experiencing:

  • Difficulty eating.
  • Muffled and unclear speech.
  • Loss of facial shape and tone.
  • Deteriorating jaw bone density
  • Decreased self-confidence

The good news? If you or a loved one is struggling with the challenges of missing teeth, there’s no need to continue suffering. Solutions such as implant supported dentures and flexible partials can make a significant improvement in a patient’s quality of life.

CALGARY DENTURE IMPLANTS

How Does a Denture Implant Work?

Unlike a regular denture, which rests upon your gums, a denture implant is supported by artificial titanium roots (implants).

There are three main components to this treatment:

  1. Tooth root replacement - A titanium root is placed into your jaw and allowed to fuse with the bone tissue. This will act as a tooth root replacement.

  2. Abutment - An abutment is an extension post that is used to attach your removable denture to the implant.

  3. Denture - Depending on your needs, your denturist may use your old denture, or create a new one, to snap onto the abutment. This denture can be removed for daily cleaning.

Implants are preferred by many patients because they provide excellent support for full and partial dentures. Since they fully integrate with your jaw bone, they create a firm anchor for your replacement teeth and will never slip or fall out. 

DENTURE IMPLANTS VS TRADITIONAL DENTURES

Dental Implants: Restoring Health, Function & Aesthetics to Your Smile

While traditional dentures offer a myriad of benefits to patients, there are some drawbacks to this tooth replacement option. Denture wearers often avoid foods that are crunch, chewy, or tough, because they’re worried their prosthetics might slip out of place. Such patients might even mumble or slur their speech.

3 Ways Denture Implants Improve Your Quality of Life

With implant supported dentures, your prosthetics are fixed in place and supported by implants that are fused with your jaw bone. This means you never have to worry about your speech or what to eat. 

Some of the incredible benefits of implant supported dentures include:

  1. Enhanced Overall Health

Implant supported dentures have been shown to improve overall health and prevent bone loss. If you have missing teeth, your jawbone can begin to degenerate because it has stopped receiving stimulation from your natural tooth roots.

How an implant helps: Because a dental implant replaces a tooth’s root, it will help maintain a dense, strong, and healthy jaw.

HOW DENTURE IMPLANTS PREVENT FURTHER TOOTH & JAW BONE LOSS

  1. Less Maintenance Required

Traditional dentures rest on your gums, and this can wear them down over time. Not only will this cause pain and discomfort, but it also requires periodic adjustment and denture refitting to ensure a proper fit.

However, with implant supported dentures, your replacement teeth will require very little maintenance, and when taken care of properly, can last you a lifetime.

  1. Improved Aesthetics

Traditional dentures are often very bulky, making your cheeks and lips appear too full. Implant supported dentures get rid of the need for excess material, allowing you to enjoy a more convenient, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
