More than 35 million people in America are missing all of their upper and/or lower teeth. And while dentures can be a great option for some people, others are opting for what’s called “implant-supported dentures.” Implant-supported dentures offer an alternative to traditional full-mouth dental implants and dentures. This technique involves only four implants per arch, which is fewer than the eight to ten implants required by traditional methods. With the implant-support technique, there is less need for bone grafting, and the implants offer a function that is incredibly close to natural teeth. This technique is revolutionary in the world of teeth restoration, making it faster, safer, and all-around more convenient for you.

What are implant-supported dentures?
The implant-supported denture system is a new and innovative approach to dental implants that allows a full set of upper or lower dentures to be supported by only four implants. The placement of each implant is carefully planned to provide stability and natural function for the replacement teeth. The main benefit of using this method is that it can speed up the patient’s recovery process and decrease the risk of complications that could arise from implant failure.
What is an implant supported bridge?
A dental bridge that is screwed in place is a complete set of upper or lower teeth that is fixed to dental implants. It closely resembles the look and performance of the patient’s own teeth and cannot be taken out. It is meant to be taken out only once a year by a dentist. This type of bridge provides the most natural sensation among all the available options, allowing for efficient biting and chewing.
What are the benefits of implant-supported dentures over traditional dentures?
With dentures, there are a number of downsides from reduced taste due to the roof of your mouth being covered to difficulty eating. The most prominent downside, however, is experiencing bone loss since dentures do not really replace your natural teeth. This can cause the face to look sunken and is part of why dentures regularly need refittings and repairs, your mouth is changing shape and they no longer fit. Dental implants don’t cover the roof of your mouth and offer as close to natural function, feel, and fit as modern dentistry allows. Significantly, they also prevent bone loss by being embedded into the jaw bone ensuring you retain your natural face shape as well as your natural dietary function.
