If you’re looking for a tooth restoration solution, there are a number of different options you’ll want to consider. Today on the blog, we’re zeroing in on just one: implant-supported dentures. Keep reading for the basics of this fantastic tooth replacement solution, and let us help you decide if this is the solution for your smile.

What Is a Dental Implant?

In order to understand how implant-supported dentures work, we will first need to introduce you to the magic behind this restorative solution: the dental implant. Quickly becoming the most popular tooth replacement option, a dental implant is a screw-like piece of titanium metal that is surgically inserted into the jaw, replacing the tooth root. The plant provides an incredibly sturdy base for your false tooth. So sturdy, in fact, that it can be used to support dentures!

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a great way to keep your dentures secure in your mouth so you don’t have to worry about removing them, or having them fall out of your mouth–which can happen with an improper fit! With implant-supported dentures, we’ll strategically place several implants throughout the mouth that will serve to permanently anchor your dentures. As a result, your beautiful, custom dentures will be comfortable and stable, so you can smile with confidence and ease!
