Full Mouth Dental Implants
Patients who are missing all of their natural teeth may benefit from an implant supported bridge or perhaps a complete denture. Dental implants were designed to specifically restore tooth roots in addition to the crown of the tooth in order to provide an all-natural, aesthetically pleasing smile.
What are the Advantages of Implant Supported Bridges or Dentures?
A dental implant supported prosthesis provides several advantages over traditional tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and feeling like natural teeth, dental implant supported devices are extremely durable. Implant supported dentures provide patients with much more comfort in comparison to conventional dentures, since their palates are not obscured with acrylic. Patient’s ability to enjoy foods freely is no longer compromised since implant supported prosthesis allows patients to bite and chew more naturally.
Bone is also better preserved with placement of dental implants. Synthetic tooth roots are inserted directly into the jaw bone, constantly stimulating the bone tissue. However, with conventional dentures or bridges, bone surrounding missing teeth will progressively deteriorate over time.
Dental implants are also more aesthetically pleasing and are easier to maintain in comparison to traditional dentures. In addition, conventional tooth replacement methods can cause recession of bone density, leading to an unattractive smile. Enjoying certain foods may also be difficult since dentures will become ill fitting.
