For anyone who has lost all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures from Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls and Brady TX may sound like a dream come true: dentures that are attached to the jaw, and surpass traditional dentures in appearance and functionality.
You know what they say: if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But set aside any skepticism. Implant-supported dentures are already worn successfully by hundreds of thousands of people.
As you may know, a dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A single post can support a single artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a set of dentures.
Implant-supported dentures have a number of advantages over traditional dentures. We’ve listed some of them below!
- Increased Stability: Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
- Natural Appearance: They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
- Durability and Reliability: Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting. Even better, they’re not prone to embarrassing slippage and require no messy adhesives, which means they’re always reliable.
- A Lack Of Bone Recession: With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.
