Why You Should Consider Implant-Supported Dentures Over Regular Dentures

If you’re finding it hard to chew because of missing teeth, you might be considering getting a denture. But did you know that regular dentures aren’t your only option? Implant-supported dentures offer a different solution to your problem, and it’s important to weigh your choices carefully before you settle on a path.

Here at New Teeth Chicago Dental, our dentists have treated over 10,000 dental implant cases. So whatever your unique situation is, their in-depth expertise and one-on-one consultations will help you restore your mouth to its full function in no time.

Difference between regular vs implant-supported dentures  

Most patients are probably familiar with regular dentures. These dentures adjust to the shape of your jaw and are constructed to fit your mouth as a separate entity. What this means is that your dentist will design the denture according to your jaw shape and then regularly make adjustments as your jaw changes.

You’ll also be able to take out these dentures and clean them outside of your mouth. Because they are completely separate from your jaw, they can sometimes sit uncomfortably on your gums and leave sore spots as they rub against them.

Implant-supported dentures use your bones to anchor them to your jaw. You can’t take out the denture without the dentist’s professional help. They also don’t sit on the gums and don’t leave sore spots. Since they are rooted in the bone to hold them in place, they’re also stronger than regular dentures that might slip out of place while chewing.

What are the advantages of implant-supported dentures?

Aside from the fact that implant-supported dentures are stronger and don’t rub on your gums, they also stimulate your jawbone, preventing it from shrinking. As regular dentures aren’t connected to the jawbone at all, the bones lose their strength without a source of stimulation.

This results in bone shrinkage over time. As the shape of your jaw changes with this reduction, your regular dentures will also have to be adjusted to fit the change in your mouth. Not only is this a hassle, but it’s also a psychological toll as changing jawlines will have an effect on your appearance.

With implant-supported dentures, you don’t have to worry about your facial structure or smile changing in a noticeable way. You can also get relief in the fact that you won’t have to worry about them falling out and causing embarrassment, or slipping while you eat your favorite meal. Since they’re a permanent fixture in your mouth, you’ll never lose them either.

If you’re looking for a long-term solution, implant-supported dentures serve better than regular dentures, both physically and psychologically. Call New Teeth Chicago Dental today to get your consultation, or book an appointment online to learn more.
