Should I Get Implant-Supported Dentures? Consider These Benefits By Craig Goldin DDS on March 15, 2024

At Cosmetic Dentistry Institute, we help patients throughout Troy, Birmingham, and Bloomfield, MI, restore their smiles. Whenever possible, we recommend dental implants. Dental implants provide incredible benefits over traditional restorations. In this blog post, we’ll cover reasons why you should consider an implant-supported denture.

Greater Confidence

If you’re missing teeth, you know the impact it can have on your self-esteem. And while traditional dentures can certainly fill the gaps in your smile, the treatment still has significant shortcomings. Implant-supported dentures ensure:

No Shifting or Clicking

Even with the most precise fit and strongest dental adhesive, traditional dentures are still prone to shifting at the worst possible moments. You could be giving a speech at your child’s wedding and having your denture make a clicking noise. Or playing with your grandchild when they ask what’s wrong with your teeth.

With an implant-supported restoration, these embarrassing moments simply don’t happen.

Dental implants are anchored in the bone itself, providing a foundation that is unrivaled in its strength and durability. This means your denture will remain firmly attached at all times.

A More Natural Appearance

For the same reason, implant dentures look unbelievably lifelike. There are no metal clasps or other components that might point to the fact you’ve had dental work done. Instead, even your close friends and family will only notice a full, youthful smile.

Improved Bone Health

Once a tooth is lost or extracted, the surrounding bone will begin to atrophy. That’s because the stimulation from the tooth’s roots is no longer signaling to the body that important nutrients are needed. Surrounding teeth can loosen and eventually fall out, resulting in even more pronounced bone loss and an aged, sunken appearance.

Dental implants mimic the function of tooth roots, maintaining a dense, healthy jawbone. They are the only restorative treatment that can produce this benefit.

Improved Overall Health

In addition to improving your oral health and the health of the jawbone, implants can have a tremendous impact on your general health as well. If you’re worried about your denture slipping out of place, or even remove it for meals when you’re at home, you likely have a very limited number of foods that you feel comfortable eating.

With a secure denture, you can eat all your favorite foods again. Imagine biting into a whole apple, eating a steak, or enjoying a crunchy, nutritious salad. Implants can make this dream a reality.

Benefits of Treatment at Cosmetic Dentistry Institute

Unlike some other dental practices, I’m able to both surgically place dental implants and design and attach a custom denture. This allows for streamlined treatment in one location – all held to the same high standard.

Implants offer priceless benefits but the posts themselves aren’t covered by insurance. We’ll work to maximize any insurance coverage for your denture and we also accept financing to cover out-of-pocket costs.
