Traditional Dentures vs. Implant Dentures Understand the Differences
Implant-supported dentures are more secure
Traditional dentures are designed with a plastic base that covers the gums, and they rely on a tight fit and adhesive materials to stay in place. While the dentures that our dentist designs today are more secure than dentures have ever been, there's always a chance that traditional dentures will shift in your mouth when you chew or speak. Dental implants, on the other hand, are artificial tooth roots that an oral surgeon can place through your gums and into your jawbone. The implants will fuse naturally with your bone, and then Dr. Arbuckle can secure a denture to the implants. Because they are anchored in the bone, implant-supported dentures should never slip out of position.
Implants prevent jawbone atrophy
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone is no longer stimulated by the tooth roots, and the bone begins to shrink and recede. This leads to reduced bite strength, and it can cause your mouth and jaw to develop an aged, sunken appearance. Because traditional dentures simply rest on top of the gums, they do nothing to address this issue. Dental implants, however, replace the lost tooth roots and maintain the strength of the jawbone while helping you avoid an aged appearance around your mouth.
Implant-supported dentures do cost more
Really, the only drawback of implant-supported dentures is that they are more costly than their traditional counterparts. However, when you consider the long-term benefits of implants, it becomes clear that they are a worthy investment. They are the only restorative option that will keep your jawbone strong and healthy, and they allow you to eat all of your favorite foods. Our team can work with your insurance company and help you secure financing so that you can afford this life-changing form of dentistry.
