Implant Supported Dentures

The difference between Traditional Dentures and Implant Supported Dentures

Implant Supported DenturesA denture is held in place by suction around the remaining jawbone and gum tissue. While dentures can look very natural, they do not have the ability to function like natural teeth. Traditional dentures are a great, affordable option for patients who are missing many or all of their teeth.

Implant-supported dentures are anchored by dental implants. This procedure is a good option for patients who are seeking a more stable solution to traditional dentures. Traditional dentures may fit loosely or require denture adhesive to stay in place.

Stability is the key difference between traditional dentures and dentures supported by dental implants. Dentures supported by implants are anchored to implants, which are surgically embedded in your jaw bone. Because traditional dentures simply rest on your gums, they cannot offer the level of stability implants can offer.
