Implant Supported Dentures & Snap-on Dentures

Many people who wear traditional dentures have issues like slippage, food restriction, and unpleasant oral glues and sticky gels. Our skilled dentists now offer implant supported dentures, a more stable and aesthetically beautiful solution thanks to developments in reconstructive dentistry. The procedure, which is sometimes referred to as tiny dental implants, Snap-in dentures or implant anchored dentures, can be a terrific choice to restore your teeth's form and function.

What Are Implant Dentures?

Implant dentures are dentures that employ dental implants to anchor themselves to the gumline. This cutting-edge treatment, which is frequently seen as an improvement over conventional dentures, aims to deliver a more comfortable fit than it is typically possible with removable dentures.

Small titanium posts are inserted into the gum tissue during the procedure to act as the dentures' fastening points, allowing them to snap in and out of position. They can be a great alternative for people who want to replace most or all their missing teeth and also want to lessen the drawbacks of loose dentures like gum slippage and a reliance on oral pastes. The anchored restorations, which are held in place by implant, are designed to feel and operate like a natural component of your mouth.

The Benefits of Implant Dentures

To improve the quality of life for our patients, our doctors make it their aim to apply the best practices. There are several benefits that implant-supported dentures can provide, including:

  • Greater Stability - There is a considerably lower chance of the dentures slipping and moving while you speak or eat.
  • More realistic appearance and feel: The dentures are properly positioned and molded to fit your mouth.
  • No gels or glue are required because they are implanted, therefore they are held in place without the use of adhesives.

Implant dentures can release patients from the restrictions and drawbacks of removable dentures. Eating a larger variety of foods and harder foods is one of the main advantages of securing dentures in place. You should no longer experience uncomfortable denture slipping, which will make it simpler to confidently eat. In addition, compared to other restorative treatments like regular dentures and bridges, implant dentures may cause less bone loss.

Am I a candidate for Implant Dentures?

For many people looking for a reliable replacement for conventional dentures, implant supported dentures can provide increased comfort, security, and confidence. Healthy gum tissue and jawbone density required for the implants' placement into the gums characterize ideal candidates for the implant denture treatment. Dentures supported by implants may be an option for patients whose jawbone density is insufficient for full dental implant surgery.

People who consider getting treatment should be in generally excellent health and free of any illnesses or problems that could make recovery more difficult. Implant dentures may not be an appropriate option for men or women receiving chemotherapy or radiation.

How are they performed?

The minimally invasive, one-time implant supported denture technique is frequently possible. The tiny titanium rods are implanted into the gum tissues and serve as a root to hold the dentures in place rather than adhering to the jawbone like full dental implants. After that, the tips of the implanted rods are attached to the dentures, giving them significantly more stability. Usually, there is no need for stitches, and healing takes only a short period.

Patients say that implant dentures cause no more discomfort than many other significant dental surgeries. This procedure is often carried out under local anesthetic to further reduce patient discomfort. Our cosmetic dentists at AnteraPark Clinicare well trained in sedation dentistry procedures that can help allay the fears of those who might experience dental anxiety because we want to deliver high-quality dental care that is both convenient and comfortable. While some sedation dental techniques cause people to fall asleep, others can help people relax before a procedure while still being completely conscious while receiving treatment.

The results of Implant Dentures

At the conclusion of the surgery, anchored dentures that feel natural in your mouth should have restored both the appearance of your smile and your ability to bite. With no need for retreatment, implant dentures are intended to be a durable restorative option. The tiny titanium pegs used to secure dentures in place in a person's gum tissue are designed to last a lifetime.

Following an implant-supported denture operation, there is typically very little downtime. Any soreness that remains after treatment can often be relieved by over-the-counter painkillers. Patients may be advised to stick to a diet of soft food as they get used to how their anchored dentures feel. In contrast to conventional dentures, implant dentures only need regular brushing, flossing, and biannual dental exams for upkeep. Implant-supported dentures can last a very long time and make an excellent alternative to conventional dentures with proper dental care.
