Putney area Dentist explains the benefits of fixed dentures supported by dental implants

Dental implants are an extremely popular restoration that can be used to replace missing teeth. Whether you are missing one, or several, implants are optimal due to their durability and longevity. They can provide a stable base for fixed dentures and offer patients who have experienced tooth loss a chance to restore beauty and function to their smiles.

At Gentle Dental Putney, there are a variety of benefits to choosing fixed dentures supported by dental implants, some that you may want to consider include:
  • Improved functionality – Patients who opt for dental implants are able to bite, chew, and speak with ease. For patients who are just missing one tooth, an implant can be used with a simple crown on top to finish the restoration. This can be extremely convenient and more effective than having to choose a dental bridge.

  • Comfort – Removable dentures sit on top of the gums. They can rub against the gum tissue and cause a great deal of discomfort. Partial dentures also have a metal framework that can irritate both the gums and cheeks. Dental implants avoid this discomfort.

  • No fear of embarrassment – Many patients who have had dentures are self-conscious about them. They may fear them moving, or even falling out at an inopportune time. Dental implants do not move or shift, so patients never have to worry about an embarrassing moment with their teeth.

  • Strength – Implants are stable, durable, and long lasting. If patients maintain good oral hygiene along with regular dental care, they can enjoy their dental implants for a lifetime.
Dental implants with fixed dentures are the strongest restoration available today because they are surgically placed into the jaw and become a part of the bone structure. Simply put, while dentures and bridges may work for some people, they do not have the same benefits as implants.

Taking care of dental implants is the same as taking care of your natural teeth. If you are missing teeth and would like to learn more about the advantages of dentures supported by dental implants and if you qualify as a candidate, call us today to schedule an appointment.
