One of the most common alternatives to traditional dentures are denture implants. Airdrie residents come to Airdrie Denture Centre Ltd for their denture implants, as we are committed to helping you get your smile back to the state it was always supposed to be in. They are a great alternative to traditional dentures.
Denture implants are such a popular choice due to the many added benefits, which include:
Restore Your Smile to its Natural State
Simply stated, denture implants bear the closest resemblance to natural teeth out of any available denture option on the market. Because implants look and feel like real teeth, you’ll be sure to feel a significant boost in self-esteem and a pride in your smile!
When it comes to fixing missing teeth, permanent or fixed dentures are reliable solutions for some patients. Particularly for those who have faced a significant tooth loss or decay and also struggle with the fit and feel of the conventional dentures due to the loss of bones in their jaw. In such cases, the permanent implants are placed in the jawline and anchored in place with the jaw bone.
These implants are usually made out of titanium, an element that helps the implant fuse to the ling bone in a process known as Osseointegration. If you have lost an entire arch of teeth and are about to lose the remaining teeth as well, it is possible to replace them with permanent denture implants.
Mentioned below are some of the benefits of permanent dentures supported by dental implants:
Like permanent dentures, removable dentures also use implants to keep dentures in place. Removable dentures prevent slipping and offer additional facial support, especially for patients having significant bone loss. What’s different with removal denture implants is that they can be taken out for an easier cleaning that takes less effort and time. Removable denture implants are also cost effective as they only cost about half of what fixed permanent dentures cost.

The removable dentures on implants offer several advantages that include:
How much does a permanent denture cost?
The cost of permanent denture implants can vary depending on how many implants are used in the entire process and the surgical procedures applied.
How much do implant-supported dentures cost?
The cost of an implant-supported dental surgery can be dependent on quite a few factors. One such factor is that the dentures are fabricated over the implants.
Are there any downsides to dental implants?
Usually, denture implant surgery can prove to be an extensive treatment process. The only downside to dental implant surgeries is that the treatment depends on the bone quality of the patient’s jaw and the implants can normally take about 3 to 6 months to heal.
Will dental implants cause trouble while eating?
Yes, dental implants can occasionally cause discomfort while eating as certain types of food get caught between the soft gum tissue and the teeth or implants to which they are attached.
How long do implant-supported dentures last?
The implant-supported dentures can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years, or even longer.
Can regular dentures be permanently attached?
In some cases, while dental implants are healing, it is possible to use conventional dentures as a transitional or temporary form of treatment. However, it becomes difficult to use your existing dentures after the healing is done as implants are reinforced with a CAD/CAM substructure which cannot be added to an existing set of dentures.
Denture implants never have to come out for any reason because they are firmly rooted just like a natural tooth. That means you’ll never have to worry about them falling out, and will be able to eat, drink, sleep and perform other routine activities without having to think about your dentures.
Implant dentures have “snaps” fitted into the denture itself. A piece called an abutment extends from the implant and snaps into the denture for a secure attachment.
