Permanent Dentures

implant_supported_dentures_2Denture implants are basically dentures secured in place by dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium screws with a small rounded ball tip that are
inserted into the gum, and the denture can be attached to a dental implant. Denture implants can stabilize dentures when in the mouth, so you don’t have to worry about them popping out.

 

Denture implants also help to preserve the jaw bone. When you are missing a tooth, the jaw bone in that area tends to shrink since there is nothing to hold, this can affect your bite. A denture implant replaces the missing tooth root, and fuses to the jaw bone, which will help your jaw to remain intact. The beauty about dentures supported by dental implants is that you are able to eat apples knowing that your dentures won’t slide around and irritate your gums.
