Implant dentures, on the other hand, are secured directly to the jaw with dental implants, and will never shift or slip. Dental implants are titanium posts designed to replace lost tooth roots. After they have been surgically inserted in the jaw, they become permanently integrated to provide virtually the same level of stability and function as natural teeth. Dental implants generally require two surgical procedures separated by three to six months of recovery time, but can provide a solution that lasts the rest of your life. They are also the only restorative solution that can prevent jaw atrophy following tooth loss. This means you may never need to have your dentures modified to accommodate changes in the shape of your jaw
Which Type of Denture Is Right for You?
Several factors will determine which denture is the best fit for your needs. If your gums and any remaining teeth are healthy, you are likely a candidate for traditional dentures. Dental implant-supported dentures have more requirements. Primarily, patients must have enough jawbone tissue to support the implants. If you have been missing teeth for an extended period of time, you have likely experienced some degree of bone atrophy, meaning the tissue near the missing teeth has begun to recess. In this case, candidacy can be restored with a bone grafting procedure in which donor tissue is grafted to recessed areas to create a suitable base for your implants.
In addition to having a healthy jaw, the best implant candidates are non-smokers who do not suffer with diabetes or other conditions that affect your ability to heal properly. Your dentist will review your medical history and assess your current state of health to determine if dental implants are right for you.
