Traditional dentures that can be removed from the mouth typically rest upon your gums. Due to the nature of soft gums, many patients experience complications when wearing them, such as the dentures slipping, or completely coming loose. When you’ve committed to daily wear, it’s important that whatever you have in your mouth day in and day out can be reliable and comfortable for you.
This is where implant-supported dentures play a role. Unlike regular dentures, these are anchored securely within your mouth with the use of dental implants, which are mentioned in the previous section. This means you can say goodbye to messy or irritating adhesives or having your dentures slip or come loose at inopportune times, and say hello to a better quality of life.
Having implant-supported dentures means you can chew, drink, and speak comfortably without having to worry about their stability. These often assign our patients a higher level of confidence, knowing they can go about their favourite activities without a second thought.
