Many people are familiar with traditional dentures, but not as many have heard about implant supported dentures. Knowing the difference is important if you’re a candidate for prosthetic teeth. As your dentist in Fort Myers, FL, the professionals at Gold Standard Dentistry are happy to offer implant supported denture installation services.
WHAT ARE IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES?
Implant supported dentures consist of a full arch of prosthetic teeth installed on implants that have been fused with the jaw. Implant supported dentures look much like traditional dentures, but they’re different from traditional teeth in a few keyways.
Implant Supported Dentures Vs. Traditional Dentures
Functionality. Traditional dentures sit inside the mouth but are not attached. Implant supported dentures are attached to abutments that are inserted into the jaw, which means they can’t slip in the mouth or come out accidentally.
Confidence in your smile. When you have implant supported dentures, you can be sure that your dentures will stay in place, regardless of what you’re doing. This makes it easier to have confidence in your smile!
