Can Dentures be Supported with Dental Implants?
Historically, dentures and partials have been the most common solution for replacing missing teeth. In recent years, these tooth replacement options have evolved, becoming stronger, more attractive, and longer-lasting. At the same time as dentures and partials have become more functionally and aesthetically effective, so too have the methods by which they are secured.
Our Cincinnati dentists are pleased to offer implant supported dentures. This option eliminates the need for unreliable and inconvenient adhesives, replacing them instead with strong and secure dental implants, which can be used to keep both partial and full dentures firmly in place. During your tooth replacement consultation at our Cincinnati area office, our implant dentists would be happy to discuss this option with you in greater detail to help you determine if it is the best for your needs.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer the longest-lasting foundation for artificial teeth such as crowns and dentures. Inserted directly into the jawbone, dental implants will not come loose or fall out, giving them a distinct advantage over adhesives. What’s more, dental implants do not need adjacent teeth for support and can help prevent damage to the natural teeth surrounding partials.
Perhaps most impressive, dental implants mimic the function of tooth roots, enabling them to prevent structural changes to your jaw. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution that will prevent jaw shrinkage and collapse, making them the best option for many of our patients.
