Custom-fabricated Implant-supported Dentures in Sudbury
Implants over dentures offer a variety of advantages as compared to conventional dentures. While some of these advantages are purely cosmetic, they can contribute to a better quality of life and make you feel happier and healthier. At Roy's Denture Clinic, we offer implant-supported dentures in Sudbury and surrounding areas.
An implant over denture solution is a type of denture supported by and attached to implants, whereas a regular denture rests on the gums. Implant-retained overdentures secure the teeth in your mouth, which means no more need for adhesives. It can reduce or eliminate movement, improve the aesthetics of your smile and improve chewing functions so you can eat the foods you love.
Advantages of Implant-retained Denture Treatment
Most consider dental implants a potent solution for replacing missing teeth in one or both dental arches. However, the advantages go beyond to include its role in preventing bone loss that results from missing teeth. The absence of teeth renders your jawbone useless and contributes to its deterioration. As the jawbone shrinks, your facial muscles lose important support and, thus, give you an older appearance (especially if all teeth are missing). Using implant prostheses, you put the jawbone to its role of holding teeth and supporting your facial muscles.
Implant-supported removable dentures can replace both missing teeth and gum tissues, similar to conventional dentures, except that the former provides a more natural look and secure and functional teeth. The prosthesis remains in place as you speak and chew. It also protects your bite and jaw joints.
