What are implant-supported dentures?

When the person has lost most or all the teeth, then the jaws become edentulous. Implant supported dentures are a great boon for patients who are facing this problem. They not only offer great prosthetic management but they also help in other functional problems.

Implant supported dentures treatment in Mumbai form a mid-way ground between the traditional dentures and the more invasive full arch dental implants.  Traditionally, adhesive based complete dentures and partial removable were used to regain the mouth’s function and shape. Nowadays, full arch dental implants are the preferred choice over conventional removable denture.

They are studier and don’t require adhesives. The individual can have an improved diet and include the foods that one would have to avoid with traditional dentures such as chips, corn on the cob etc. During the installation of this device, an oral surgeon will attach 4 to 6 implants that are made of titanium. A fix bridge or over denture is placed over titanium implants, the implant fuses with bone of the jaw, and so they don’t move or slip and even don’t damage the bone, unlike traditional ones.

Another big advantage of implant-supported dentures is that you can remove and snap them on as many times ae you like. This means less stress to the jaw, low bone damage, more space for tongue movement and easy cleaning and maintaining. 

Removable or permanent implant-supported dentures: Which one will work for me?

The suitability of the denture depends upon the need of the patient and the condition of the mouth.

Implant supported denture have three components:

  1. Dental implant: It is a screw made up of high-grade biocompatible titanium. It is placed in the jaw bone and it act as the root of the teeth, which will provide firm support to the prosthesis.
  2. Abutment: It connects the implant to the denture. This too is also made of a strong material to withstand every day pressure of normal functions of mouth.
  3. Denture: It is the visible part of the prosthesis. It looks and feels like natural teeth. This is the part where the cosmetic skills of the top dental surgeons in Mumbai come into play.

  2. Bar-retainer denture: This type of implant supported denture is also popularly known as the “Clip-on” denture. As the names suggests in this type of denture clips and latches are used to connect to abutment bar, which will curve along with the dental arch of the patient above the gum line.

How are implant-supported dentures better than traditional dentures?

Choosing the right solution for missing teeth are depends upon varies factors, like; priorities, cost and the health of the soft tissues and the jaw bone. There are significant differences between the implant supported and tradition dentures, some of these include:

  • Convenience: They both solve the same purpose like eating, speech etc. But implant supported denture gives a better user experience, and there is no need to remove it (in case of permanent implant supported dentures).
  • Cost or price: Traditional removable dentures are lower in price, but come with challenges. Implant supported dentures are little expensive but provide the trouble free experience over the extended time.
  • Eating experience: In case of traditional removable ones food being stuck within the denture is a frequent problem. To avoid this, dentist advised to restrict on eating certain types of food. While In case of implant supported dentures you can eat whatever you want, as there are no restrictions.
  • Usage: Over time, the traditional dentures become loose and do not fit properly. It will come off while talking. On the other hand implant supported denture are fixed so no tension of slip off.
  • Speech clarity: Using traditional dentures restricts the tongue movement, so speech is not very clear. In case of implant supported device tongue has enough space to move, so that speech clarity is there. Patients report a noticeable improvement in speech ability because of the greater stability of implant supported dentures.
  • Health issue: Long use of the traditional removable denture may result in compression on bone and gum, causing reduced gums and bone tissue volume. While implant supported dentures will save the jaw bone from degeneration.
