What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Since traditional dentures rest on the gums and are secured in place with adhesives, they run the risk of slipping and moving around when the patient is eating and speaking. Traditional dentures can also cause jaw bone loss since the natural teeth are no longer stimulating the jaw bone.
What to Expect With Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures involve placing a set of dental implants to create a foundation for the dentures to rest upon. The dentures are attached to the implants with a bar-retained or ball-retained fixture that allows for a more stable fit. These dentures can still be removed for regular cleaning and will function just like permanent teeth.
This tooth replacement procedure typically requires several office visits since we need to first place a set of dental implants, then attach a set of custom dentures to the implants. Dr. Lee will check for fit and comfort every step of the way. We can also determine whether you need an occlusal adjustment to ensure the dentures feel like your real teeth and you are not experiencing jaw pain or bite problems.
