Implant-supported dentures are one of the best options for replacing lost teeth. They have many advantages over conventional dentures, and are available at Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ.
Conventional dentures rest on the gums, and are usually kept in place with adhesives. That makes them unstable and prone to slpping. Implant-supported dentures are literally attached to the jaw by titanium posts that have been surgically placed in the bone.
The titanium post is the actual implant. Within a few months of being placed there, they fuse with the bone – that is, they literally become a part of the body. Most often there are four implants supporting a single dental arch, providing rock-solid support.
Because they are part of the jaw bone, the implants significantly minimize the bone loss associated with lost teeth. This, in turn, helps to prevent the shrunken look seen in the faces of people with conventional dentures.
The best candidates for implant-supported dentures are people in good general health and with enough bone mass to support the implants. While the loss of bone mass is common, most of it occurs within the first year of losing teeth. Because of this, it is best to have dental implants positioned within that time frame.
Even people who have lost some of their bone mass can still receive dental implants, however. Bone grafting can promote enough new bone growth to support one.
