Why Choose Sparkling Smiles for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

While traditional dentures stay in position through suction and rest on top of the gums, these dentures rely on 4 to 6 implant posts, which go under the gums and integrate with the jawbone. With these posts embedded in the bone, the dentures are fastened to stable anchors.

When it comes to implant dentures, there are two types you can choose from.

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

This type of denture is bonded to the implants in a way that no one can remove the denture but the dentist. Most of the time, patients choose this option because it eliminates the possibility of the prosthetic teeth from moving or coming out.

Removable Implant Dentures

Some people who have traditional dentures appreciate the ability to take out their dentures for cleaning. If you want to have this same capability, even with implants, we can use abutments that resemble snaps, allowing you to put the dentures in securely and yet remove them when you want.

In order to qualify for implant dentures, you must meet a few criteria. First, you must be missing all your teeth. Second, your mouth must not have an infection like gum disease. Third, you need to be generally healthy. Certain conditions, if not properly managed, can interfere with the success of the implants.

Benefits of Combining Dentures & Dental Implants

If you have traditional dentures, you may wonder why you should bother with attaching them to dental implants, but they make a substantial difference! While normal dentures can slip out of place or feel unstable, implant dentures will not shift, move, or slip out of place, and they will feel just like real teeth. Also, because the implants are integrated with the jawbone, this tissue won’t deteriorate, making your prosthetic teeth last decades longer!
