Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Implants consist of a small titanium post that is screwed into the bone to replace the root followed by an abutment and a crown that is attached to that post. Dental implants are only successful when there is enough underlying bone structure to support the implant. Implant candidates must also have healthy gums that will withstand and recover from the surgery.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant Supported Dentures- As we age, the mouth naturally changes. These changes can cause a denture to loosen, making chewing difficult. Having the upper natural suction roof of the mouth helps retain upper dentures by remaking or relining them. The lower ridge however is not as easy. When teeth are lost, the bone that once sustained them has no more function and will eventually be gone entirely making a lower ridge extremely difficult to be the source to retain lower dentures.
Implants are recommended because they can help these cases. By placing implants under the lower jawbone, the bone’s function is now to preserve the implants. Attachments are placed on the implants as well as underneath an implant supported denture and both work to keep the denture in place. Ask your provider is you are a good candidate for implanted supported dentures. Dentists must verify that patients have enough healthy jawbone or if bone grafting may be necessary.
