When patients learn about dental implants, they are often told the benefits of using dental implants to replace a single tooth. However, did you know that implants can also be used to hold dentures? Dr. Christopher Lim of Las Vegas, NV helps patients who visit Hillside Dental learn about the benefits of implant-retained dentures.
Most patients are familiar with full dentures, which are used to replace an entire arch of teeth. They might think of an elderly member of their family who wears dentures. They sometimes learn about the disadvantages of a traditional denture, including poor fit and the inability to keep them firmly in place. With implant-retained dentures, these problems are a thing of the past! Implant-retained dentures are full dentures that snap into place over several dental implants placed along the arch to stabilize the dentures.
Implant-retained dentures have many benefits. They:
Are strong and durable
Are effective in holding dentures in place
Allow patients to enjoy their favorite foods without worry
Do not require dental adhesives or natural suction to keep dentures in place
Maintain bone with osseointegration
Easy to care for
Most patients who need to replace an entire arch of teeth and have healthy bone are considered appropriate candidates for implant-retained dentures. However, to properly determine if patients can move forward with treatment, they can schedule an evaluation with Dr. Christopher Lim and his staff at Hillside Dental.
