Those looking for a stable and lasting solution to multiple missing teeth could benefit from implant-supported dentures. These are similar to traditional dentures and while they have the same form and appearance, they are stabilized with dental implants. So, you can have dentures without them becoming loose, unfitting or uncomfortable. Implant-supported dentures are also very cost-effective as a tooth replacement treatment and can sometimes be made by retrofitting your existing dentures.
First, the implant posts, which are titanium screws, must be placed into the jawbone. Normally only 4-6 implants are needed to support the denture, but this depends on the patient’s unique needs. Once the implants have been placed and are healed properly, the denture is secured over top of them. Your dentures are then exceptionally stable and may function more like your natural teeth.
