Dentures vs.

Implant Supported Dentures

While dentures are a common go-to solution for those with tooth loss, they often prove to be troublesome after years of wear. Dentures are an affordable solution, and the best for some patients, but they do not stimulate the jaw bone for continued growth like natural teeth and dental implants do. This leads to long-term denture wears suffering from a changing facial appearance and ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures. Dental implants and implant supported dentures provide patients more security and oral health benefits while still appearing natural.

Implant Supported Dentures

Implant supported dentures combine both dentures and dental implants to create a long-lasting, healthy, and stable tooth replacement solution. Dr. HagShenas will place two to four dental implants in your jaw, which will “snap” to a customized denture appliance for added security. The denture will be firmly held in place by the dental implants, preventing slipping or looseness. Implant supported dentures stimulate the jaw bone to prevent bone deterioration, meaning your appearance will not alter and the denture will not need to be adjusted and replaced. Implant supported dentures provide patients with a more natural smile, a stronger bite and secure hold when compared to traditional dentures.

Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetic appliances that mimic the look and function of natural teeth. Dr. Amir HagShenas custom fits patients for dentures so they fit the jaw comfortably. Dentures are often held in place through suction, adhesives or pastes, and need to be removed at night to sleep and clean. Over time, you will need to have your dentures adjusted to retain a proper fit because your jaw bone will begin to recede due to lack of tooth root stimulation. Dentures provide a natural appearance and allow the patient to eat a wider variety of foods than if they were without teeth.
