Traditional dentures rely on a patient’s gum ridge for support. In many cases the patient needs adhesive to prevent the dentures from moving or slipping. An implant-supported denture, however, is an economic alternative to stabilize dentures far beyond the capability of adhesive. In many cases we can use your existing dentures and convert them to implant supported dentures further reducing the cost.
People with implant-supported dentures smile, talk and eat with more confidence because they never have to fear their dentures falling out or moving. Implant-supported dentures are more comfortable and more secure because they snap onto attachments on special implants.
Additionally, the bone that surrounded the tooth roots will resorb with conventional dentures. Implant-supported dentures help preserve bone.
New Jersey Periodontist for Implant-Supported Dentures
Wearing implant-supported dentures integrates dental implants with your jawbone, reducing jaw shrinkage and bone loss. Unlike traditional dentures, patients have no need for adhesives and do not suffer the pain associated with slipping dentures.
Implant-supported full or partial dentures can still be removed so people can clean the dentures and their gum areas. The removability does not come at the expense of stability.
