Removable Dentures on Implants Several denture wearers struggle with the fit of their dentures, resulting in sores or having to use adhesive. Others have trouble eating or chewing. If this is you, a removable denture on implants may be the solution for you. This type of denture improves your appearance by replacing missing teeth while providing improved overall function for eating and speech, combining the stability provided by dental implants with the convenience of a removable denture. The prosthetic securely snaps in place over attachments fixed in place using dental implants, which are artificial roots placed into the supporting bone. Dental implants help to preserve the bone which can shrink over time without a tooth root structure to retain it.
In comparison to a traditional denture, these secure and functional teeth are more likely to improve your confidence and quality of life.
Fixed Dentures on Implants Unlike traditional dentures that can be removed, fixed dentures are non-removable. This type of prosthetic looks, feels, and functions just like natural teeth because it is permanently attached to your dental implants. With a fixed denture you are able to eat, chew, bite, talk, laugh, and smile without the fear that your denture may slip and slide during daily activities. Since you don’t have to remove them every night for cleaning or put them in a glass of water beside the bed while you sleep, you might even forget you’re wearing dentures at all.
