Anchoring Your Dentures – Implant-supported Options

Dr. Kazmer explaining the structure of a dental implant.

An implant-supported denture is a life changing solution for patients who are frustrated with their current dentures. The implants anchor the denture, making it work better and be more functional in every day use.

Dentures often don’t fit well or look that great aesthetically. This can affect a patient’s confidence, and patients often come into our office looking for a better option than the denture they’ve been wearing for 20 years. Implant-supported dentures are a fantastic solution to solve this problem.

Overdentrues

Overdentures are a denture alternative that are anchored by dental implants.

One solution to a denture that doesn’t fit well is an overdenture. Overdentures are created by placing as few as two implants, then attaching the denture to the implants. The denture snaps on to the implants, and is now anchored.

This allows you to chew and function much better than if you were simply using the frustrating paste or goo that they’ve been using for years. This is a predictable way of attaching and anchoring dentures.

Patients with overdentures are now able to function, smile, and chew better without worrying that the denture will move. It’s a rather simple implant solution to a problem that someone might have been suffering with for many years.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

This All-on-4 Dental Implant model shows how the restoration is anchored by implants.

If you want to get away from the denture all-together, the other alternative is looking at options like All-on-4.

All-on-4 is a full-arch restoration that replaces all of the missing teeth. That restoration is placed on 4 implants (the implants are in the bone, where the teeth used to be).

With this method, we can make a restoration that stays in, lasts, and functions. You’ll even be able to chew harder foods like steak, apples, or nuts.

All-on-4 is the closest solution to your natural, healthy teeth.
