Our implant-supported dentures provide outstanding stability while functioning just like natural teeth. Our patients appreciate being able to eat, talk, and smile with confidence.
Implant-supported dentures are a modern alternative to regular dentures. These types of dentures are connected to and supported by implants. It differs from a regular denture that rests on the gums and is not supported by implants.
Conventional dentures are designed to mould to the shape of your mouth. Your gums and the underlying bone structure supports these dentures, making the denture rub against your gums.
An implant-supported denture, on the other hand, is both supported and retained by dental implants. This means that the denture does not rest on the gums. Instead, it is fixed on your dental implants, which are embedded in the bone.
If you don't already have implants, Dr JJ Serfontein will first need to place implants. Implants are permanent fixtures in the mouth, so a lot of consideration and planning needs to go into the process, which usually involves a team of dental professionals. Once your mouth has healed, your team will create and add the implant-supported denture.
If you have lost teeth, and you're currently trying to decide between getting conventional dentures and implant-supported dentures, there are a few factors to consider.
If you're ready to smile with confidence, contact JJS Dentistry today. Dr JJ Serfontein will assess your candidacy for implant-supported dentures and tailor a treatment plan for your unique case.
