Why Implant Dentures Could be Right for You

Fresno Implant DenturesWhat are Implant Dentures?

These dental restorations are a hybrid of dental implants and dentures. The dentures have abutments for four dental implant posts, one on each side, top and bottom, front and back. The dental implants, secured to your jawbone, support the dental restoration made to replace all of your teeth. Edentulous patients, or patients without any remaining teeth, can benefit from the full-mouth reconstruction of dentures, as well as the security of dental implants.

Implant Supported Dentures Feel More Secure

Unlike traditional dentures, implant dentures give patients the security of a dental restoration that moves with their jawbone. This is because the dental implant posts hold the hybrid dentures firmly to the gum line. Traditional dentures may require messy pastes or suction to hold them in place. Implant supported dentures provide tooth replacement without worrying about dentures slipping when you eat or speak. Since these dentures are attached to a dental implant, they are also easier to clean and maintain than removable dentures which must be soaked in a cleaner nightly.

Hybrid Dentures Lift Your Smile

Facial collapse is an unfortunate side effect of multiple missing teeth. Losing vertical height from your teeth results in a collapsed look for your smile. Lost vertical height translates to deep mouth wrinkles, adding years to your face. In addition, your jawbone will begin to shrink, adding to the sunken-in look. Jawbone deterioration is a side effect of lost chewing stimulation from your tooth roots. With the dental implants from your hybrid dentures giving needed chewing stimulation to your jawbone, your jaw can stay healthy, preventing facial collapse.
