Are you tired of struggling with slippery dentures? It may be time for a more permanent solution!
An implant supported denture is a kind of overdenture available at Oasis Dental Studio on the Gold Coast that is supported by dental implants, rather than supported by the gums alone. This dental implant treatment is suitable for those who have lost all of their teeth in a dental arch, but have enough jawbone material to support the implants. An implant supported denture is more commonly used for the lower jaw, however it can also be used to restore the upper jaw, meaning that essentially no smile is “beyond hope”! In some cases we are even able to restore a smile completely where the patient has lost both arches of teeth.
Who are Implant Supported Dentures Most Suitable For?
Implant supported dentures are great for those who cannot tolerate the feeling of completely covering the palate (roof of the mouth), which is often associated with traditional dentures. When all the teeth are lost there is nothing left to help stabilise the denture, causing them to slip or come loose while talking or eating. Dr Firgaira is able to solve this issue by using dental implants as anchor points for the dentures to be securely fixed to, allowing the patient full function of the mouth and full stability of their dentures.
What are the Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant supported dentures are modern dentures designed to meet the needs of today’s patients. You deserve to feel good about your smile as well as have it function effectively. The benefits of implant supported dentures over conventional dentures include:
- The ability to eat with your dentures – conventional dentures would tend to slip or fall out, implant supported dentures are much stronger and functional.
- The ability to speak more clearly and easily – since they offer a more permanent solution, implant supported dentures provide structural support to the face, including the lips for heightened speech function.
- The ability to smile with confidence – no more worrying about the stability or reliability of your dentures!
Fixed and Removable Implant Supported Dentures at Oasis Dental Studio
Many patients prefer traditional dentures that are removable while some patients might prefer to have ‘fixed’ dentures that do not require removal. That is why we offer both fixed and removable implant supported dentures which we source from BioHorizons.
Our dental implant supported dentures are scientifically tested and trailed to sit correctly and functionally inside the mouth. The dentures are custom-made to suit your smile and your occlusion (bite) and will be rooted to a series of dental implants that will support the denture. A removable denture will have a series of custom-made abutments attached to the bottom of the denture so that they can be easily removed and cleaned.
