Supported Dentures

Supported dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures or overdentures, are a type of dental prosthesis that combines the use of dental implants with removable dentures. They offer an improved solution for individuals who have lost most or all of their natural teeth.


What Is Supported Dentures?

Facts about supported dentures:

  • Stability and retention: Supported dentures offer significantly improved stability and retention compared to traditional dentures. The dental implants provide a strong foundation, preventing the dentures from slipping or shifting during everyday activities like eating, speaking, or laughing.
  • Enhanced chewing function: With supported dentures, individuals can enjoy improved biting and chewing function. The secure attachment to dental implants allows for better force distribution, enabling more efficient chewing and the ability to comfortably eat a wider variety of foods.
  • Increased comfort: Supported dentures are designed to fit more securely and comfortably than traditional dentures. The elimination of denture movement or irritation against the gums can reduce discomfort and soreness, providing a more pleasant denture-wearing experience.
  • Preserved bone health: The placement of dental implants stimulates the jawbone, helping to preserve its structure and prevent bone loss. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have experienced significant bone resorption due to tooth loss. Supported dentures contribute to maintaining a healthy jawbone and facial structure.
  • Improved speech: The stability and proper fit of supported dentures can enhance speech clarity. Unlike traditional dentures that may cause slurred speech or difficulty pronouncing certain words, supported dentures allow for more natural speech patterns and articulation.
  • Customization and aesthetics: Supported dentures can be customized to match the individual’s desired aesthetic preferences. The denture base can be color-matched to the natural gum tissue, and the artificial teeth can be selected to blend seamlessly with the remaining natural teeth. This ensures a natural and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Supported dentures offer a reliable and functional solution for individuals who desire improved denture stability and enhanced oral function. It’s important to consult with a dental professional to assess your specific dental needs and determine if supported dentures are the appropriate treatment option for you. They will guide you through the process, explain the benefits and considerations, and help you achieve a confident and comfortable smile.

More Abouts Supported Dentures

Supported dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures or overdentures, offer several advantages that make them a popular choice for individuals seeking a reliable and functional denture solution.

Supported dentures provide significantly improved stability compared to traditional dentures. The dental implants act as anchors, securing the denture firmly in place and preventing it from shifting or slipping during speaking, eating, or other activities. This stability gives individuals greater confidence and comfort while wearing their dentures.

The stability provided by dental implants allows for better biting and chewing function. Supported dentures can withstand greater biting forces, enabling individuals to comfortably eat a wider variety of foods. This can enhance overall nutrition and the enjoyment of meals.
