Implant Supported Tooth and Dentures
Implant-supported tooth replacement involves the placement of a dental implant into the jawbone, followed by the attachment of an artificial tooth (crown). This method is used when an individual is missing a single tooth or teeth. It serves as a permanent and durable replacement, restoring function.
Implant-supported dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth or a full arch of teeth. In this case, multiple dental implants are strategically placed in one’s jawbone, and the dentures are attached to the implants. This prevents movement or slippage while eating or speaking.
When does one need implant supported tooth and dental dentures?
Denture Wearers: Individuals who currently wear removable dentures may opt for implant-supported dentures for improved stability and comfort. Implants anchor the dentures securely, eliminating concerns about slippage, discomfort, or difficulty speaking and eating that may occur with traditional dentures.
Long-Term Solutions: Implant-supported tooth replacements have a longer lifespan compared to traditional dentures or bridges. With proper maintenance and care, implants can last for many years, providing a more permanent solution and reducing the need for frequent replacements.

What are the advantages of implant supported tooth and dentures?
Implants provide a strong and stable foundation for tooth replacements. They are surgically placed and fuse together with the bone through a process called osseointegration. This integration ensures that the implants remain firmly anchored in the mouth.
