Implant dentures are an excellent solution for people who have lost most or all of their natural teeth.
It is an alternative to removable dentures and offers many benefits.
Here’s why you should consider replacing a removable denture with an implant-supported denture:
- Stability and comfort: The implant-supported denture is permanently attached, which means it does not fall out or move while eating, talking or laughing.
This significantly improves the comfort of use compared to removable dentures, which can sometimes be uncomfortable and unstable.
- Preservation of bone structure: Removable dentures may contribute to bone loss in the jaw because they do not provide adequate stimulus to the bone like natural teeth or implant-supported dentures.
Implant-supported dentures, placed directly into the bone, help maintain its integrity.
- Oral Health Safety:Removable dentures can cause irritation and sores in the mouth, especially if they do not fit properly.
Implant-supported dentures are stable, which helps avoid these problems.
- Improving the quality of life: Implant-supported dentures allow you to eat normally, taste food and be comfortable in everyday life.
Patients with dentures on implants can again enjoy their meals without having to restrict their diet.
- Aesthetics: Implant dentures look and function like natural teeth, which means that the patient can regain his beautiful smile and self-confidence.
The procedure for attaching the prosthesis to the implants includes several steps.
First, there must be a consultation with an implantologist who will assess the condition of the patient’s oral cavity and plan an appropriate implantation procedure.
Then, under local or general anesthesia, dental implants are implanted into the jaw bone.
After the bones heal, special attachments are placed on the implants to which the prosthesis will be attached.
The cost of an implant-based prosthesis depends on many factors, including the number of implants and type
prosthesis, materials used to make the prosthesis and the region where the procedure is performed.
Implant costs can be quite high, but many dental clinics offer installment payment options or financing to help patients fit into their budget.
Before deciding on an implant-based prosthesis, the patient should consult an experienced implantologist who will assess his or her individual needs and adapt the treatment plan.
