Dental Implants Improve Denture Restorations

May 19 • 1 minute read

As we age, the likelihood of losing our teeth increase. While dentures alone provide an adequate replacement for missing teeth, dental implants improve upon the original design and work with dentures to completely restore the smile. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits dental implants have on dentures.

Supporting Teeth and Bone with Dental Implants

Dental implants stabilize prosthetic teeth in place using titanium posts placed into the jaw bone, replacing teeth’s roots in addition to their crowns. This biocompatible material used to craft the dental post fuses with the bone to act as natural roots of teeth, generating united support for both the bone and the prosthetic replacement.

Not only does this procedure provide security for dentures, it also improves their function by fixing the dentures in place rather than relying on the soft tissue’s natural suction. Moreover, dental implants also provide several benefits to dental health.

Health benefits from dental implants include:

  • Prevention of Accelerated Jawbone Deterioration
  • Prevention of Signs of Premature Aging
  • Ability to Maintain the Same Diet Prior to Tooth Loss

Why replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants?

If a tooth is missing, it leads to teeth shifting out of place and jaw bone shrinkage. This leads to many complications down the road, such as a weakened jaw bone.

By themselves, dentures provide slowly contribute to wearing down the gums and bone by relying on them for support. On the other hand, dental implants support the dentures and improve upon their performance by supplying adequate security for both the prosthetic and the jaw.

What Can I Expect?

The procedure to receive dental implants requires surgical place of implant post, a healing period, and placement of the prosthetic set of teeth. Additionally, patients require an adequate amount of bone density in order to receive dental implants safely, maximize the chance of success, and further damage to the bone. Bone grafting is a procedure that can improve jaw bone density, giving patients with inadequate bone density an option to receive dental implants.
