Just as dental implants have revolutionized single tooth replacement, implant-supported dentures are a total game-changer when it comes to denture options. At Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch we offer state-of-the-art All-on-4 implant dentures.
Implant-supported dentures are full dental arches that are supported by multiple implants, usually four (hence the name). The implants are titanium posts inserted into the jawbone. A full dental arch – an upper or lower denture – attaches to the posts.
There are many benefits to implant-supported dentures over conventional ones. In this post, we’ll take a look at some of them.
Implants Prevent Bone Recession
This may be the most important health benefit of dental implants: full arches in particular, but even single dental implants.
Bone recession is common with lost teeth. It has an impact on your appearance: that shrunken, sagging look to the face.
When the root is gone, the surrounding bone begins to atrpohy due to lack of stimulation. A dental implant is essentially a replacement tooth root. They provide the needed stimulation, and thus halt recession.
Since implant-supported dentures are directly anchored to your jaw, they are far more stable than are conventional dentures. That means you can eat just about anything you care to eat, without worrying your dentures will slip.
People with conventional dentures often have difficulty with speaking clearly. That happens because the dentures can shift out of place. That is not an issue with implant-supported dentures.
At Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch we’ve placed implant dentures in patients throughout from Mission Viejo, Las Sorres, and San Juan Capistrano. Other services include complete general dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
