Do you hide your smile because you’re embarrassed by missing teeth? Have you tried dentures but found them uncomfortable due to poor fits? The good news is that there are several options available to patients in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area when it comes to dentures. One such option that Dr. Mark Johnson makes available is implant-supported dentures. This type of denture takes advantage of dental implants to create a stable, comfortable fit for patients.
Implant-supported dentures have become a very popular option among patients in recent years. This type of denture provides a middle-ground between traditional complete dentures applied with adhesives and less affordable full-arch dental implants. If you are seeking a teeth replacement option that is affordable and improves your chewing and speaking ability, implant-supported dentures may be what you are looking for.
An implant-supported denture involves the insertion of dental implants in your jawbone, which your denture will attach to. These dentures are permanent, provide a sturdier alternative, and do not need adhesives to be kept in place. This makes the fit more comfortable as well.
One of the most apparent benefits of implant-supported dentures is that they do not slip or shift once put in place. With traditional dentures that require adhesives, they can shift around in the mouth or pop loose when you need them the most. Imagine trying to eat a meal with dentures that will just not stay put.
With implant-supported dentures, you do not need to worry about this. Because they are attached to dental implants, they are held firmly in place and rest comfortably on these implants so that you can do everyday activities without worrying about them popping loose. What’s more, implant-supported dentures look and feel natural and improve your chewing and speaking ability while restoring your smile!
