Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
When you replace your missing teeth with implant-supported dentures, you can look forward to experiencing a number of amazing benefits.
Retain Bone Density
One of the first benefits of implant-supported dentures is bone retention. When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone no longer has anything to stimulate it. As a result, bone resorption occurs. As the bone resorbs, it can cause your facial appearance to show signs of aging. This is because the jaw bone supports your facial structure in addition to your teeth. With implant-supported dentures, dental implants stimulate the jaw bone to prevent resorption.
Although FOY® Dentures already offer great stability, adding implants into the mix makes them even more stable. When you have implant-supported dentures, the dentures attach to the dental implants surgically inserted into the jaw. There is no way for them to fall out or become loose. Instead, they stay fixed in place and offer a high level of stability you won’t find with dentures alone.
Function Like Natural Teeth
Thanks to the dental implants acting like natural tooth roots, implant-supported dentures function similarly to natural teeth. Eating won’t feel much different than it naturally does after you get implant-supported dentures.
Improved Quality of Life
If you’ve been living with missing teeth or regular dentures, getting implant-supported dentures will improve your quality of life. Not only will you feel more confident in your smile, but eating, speaking, and smiling will feel natural again. You won’t have to avoid certain foods because you can’t chew them or hide your teeth when you smile because you think your dentures look obvious. Implant-supported FOY® Dentures will also help your appearance look years younger thanks to the neuromuscular principles and jaw bone retention.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Most patients are perfect candidates for implant-supported dentures. Your dentist will check your bone density as well as your overall oral health to determine whether implants are right for you. In some cases, a bone graft might be necessary to ensure there is enough bone. If for any reason you are not a good candidate for implants, you can at the very least upgrade your dentures to FOY® Dentures for a more secure and comfortable fit.
