Replace missing teeth with reliable and comfortable Implant-Supported Dentures
Did you know that a winning smile can create a positive and long-lasting first impression? Unfortunately, if you have missing teeth, you may not be able to put your best smile forward. But does that mean you should settle for an average smile?
Also, when you are missing a tooth or more, it’s only a matter of time before you start experiencing oral issues, such as bone resorption, impeded chewing ability, and altered speech. Because missing teeth pose negative impacts on your dental health, at StarBrite Dental in Dublin, California, we offer implant-supported dentures to complete your smile for many years to come.
What are implant-supported dentures?
While most people have a negative connotation about dentures, these appliances are popular in replacing lost teeth. Typically, dentures rely on suction and adhesives to keep them in place. But for a more solid anchorage, implant-supported dentures are quickly gaining a foothold in the dentistry world. But how do they work?
The most visible component of this dental restoration is the dentures themselves since they sit above the gum line. However, beneath the gum line, there exist biocompatible implant posts that hold your dentures in place. Dentures supported by implants are preferable because they are secured in place, reducing the chances of popping loose when eating, coughing, or laughing.
Are implant-supported dentures permanent?
As mentioned, implant-supported dentures are secured in place by implant posts that act as your natural tooth roots. With this in mind, you can’t remove the dentures by yourself — you will need a dentist to detach the dentures from the implants. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala advises that implant-supported dentures can last for as many as 25 years. However, longevity depends on your dietary choices, oral health, and how well you take care of your dentures.
