Learn More About Implant Retained Dentures
There are a number of reasons why a patient may need to have a tooth extracted. At Ackley Dental Group, we aim to restore the function of the mouth as soon as possible to avoid further complications with your oral and overall health. One tooth replacement option we may recommend to patients is implant retained dentures. As the name implies, implant retained dentures are a combination of dental implants and dentures that can be used to replace multiple teeth and even a full row of teeth. This treatment method consists of a removable denture that is anchored in place by a small number of dental implants.
Benefits of Implant Retained Dentures
This tooth replacement method is popular among many patients because it offers a number of benefits that traditional dentures don’t, such as:
Implant retained dentures fit more comfortably in the mouth because the hardware is typically much smaller than a traditional denture. The smaller size allows the dentures to appear more natural and closely resembles real teeth. Increased comfort also assists with chewing food and speaking properly.
Although traditional dentures are made from a durable material that can last for a number of years, it is not expected to last a lifetime. Implant retained dentures last considerably longer and can even last decades when cared for properly.
Improved Quality of Life
Traditional dentures have a habit of slipping easily out of the mouth, making many patients self-conscious when speaking to others. It can also make it difficult to chew food properly and can often limit food selections. Patients love that they can reintroduce some of their favorite food.
