Traditional Dentures vs. Implant Dentures

In this video, Dr. Vahid Bashi explains why implant-supported dentures are an upgrade from standard dentures, establishing a secure fit and natural feel.

Dentures are prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics. They function by creating a suction or grip within your mouth to stay in place. However, over time, the bone and gums in your mouth naturally undergo some degree of resorption or deterioration, which can affect the fit and stability of traditional dentures.

In cases where regular dentures do not provide a secure fit or are uncomfortable due to changes in the jawbone and gums, an alternative option is to use dental implants. Dental implants can be placed in the upper or lower jaw, or both, to serve as anchor points for the dentures.

Here’s how implant-supported dentures work:

1. Implant Placement: Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone. These implants serve as stable anchors for the dentures.

2. Attachment of Dentures: The dentures are designed with special attachments or connectors that can securely snap onto the dental implants. This connection provides a stable foundation, preventing the dentures from slipping or moving while eating or speaking.

3. Enhanced Stability: With implant-supported dentures, you can experience enhanced stability, improved biting force, and increased confidence in the security of your dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are an excellent option for individuals who struggle with the fit and comfort of traditional dentures. They provide a more secure and natural-feeling solution for restoring oral function and aesthetics. If you are interested in implant-supported dentures, it is advisable to consult with a dental professional who can evaluate your specific needs and determine the most appropriate treatment plan to enhance the stability and comfort of your dentures.
