Implant Retained Dentures in Ann Arbor, MI and the Surrounding Area
Implant retained dentures are overdentures that are supported by dental implants. These implants are fused to the jaw bone and provide a sturdy base for the denture to sit on top of. These are different from “normal” dentures, usually dentures just rest on the gums and are held in place with specific adhesive. Implants are used when the patient has enough jaw bone but does not have any teeth, when there is enough jaw bone present they can be affixed to it and the implants can be used to support a denture. Implant retained dentures are more sturdy and permanent than “normal” dentures because they don’t just rest on the gums and are implanted into the jaw bone.
There are many reasons someone would need a denture. If all or most of the teeth have fallen out or broken because of disease, neglect, injury, and more you could be a candidate. Implant retained dentures are permanent and are not supposed to be taken out at night like “normal” dentures. They also provide better functionality because they have a stronger base and do not run the risk of moving like others do. They also last longer and hold up better than other dentures. These dentures are not for people who need a “quick fix” and are implanted into the jaw, this may take longer but the results are aesthetically and functionally much better.
