Before the invention of dental implants, there was no accessible permanent solution for people who have lost all their teeth. Many people opted for dentures that were temporarily attached to their gums with a special kind of adhesive.
Drawbacks of Traditional Dentures
At first, dentures looked great. They replicated their natural set of teeth with no noticeable drawbacks. After a while, however, the shortcomings of dentures become more obvious.
These types of false teeth dentures, for example, had to be constantly removed and then cleaned during meal times. In addition, the dentures would sometimes suddenly slip off and be a major cause of embarrassment. Often the lack of teeth roots caused the jaw bone to deteriorate and recede, leading to the “sagging and bagging” of the face now associated with traditional dentures.
With the advances in the field of dentistry, it is now possible to replace your missing teeth with implant supported dentures that are long-lasting, sturdy, beautiful, and best of all, natural-looking.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures, as the name suggests, are artificial teeth attached to your gums with dental implants. Implant supported dentures do not merely rest on the gums like traditional dentures, but rather they are firmly locked in place.
