Exploring the Difference Between Implant Dentures & Dental Implants
Are you considering getting dental implants but unsure if they are right for you? If so, consider implant dentures as an alternative. But what’s the difference between implant dentures and full-arch dental implants? The following explanation covers the basics of each type of procedure to better understand the answer.
Dental implants are a popular choice amongst patients who have lost one or more teeth due to injury or disease. A dental implant is a titanium piece inserted into the jawbone, serving as an artificial root for your new tooth. The implant is then capped with an artificial tooth, giving it a natural look and feel. This option helps maintain your jawbone structure, prevents your other teeth from shifting out of place, and allows you to eat and normally drink without worrying about improper support from your back teeth or slipping dentures. Not all patients qualify because of their jawbone density, but a bone grafting procedure may add the needed jawbone support.
Caring for traditional dental implants is straightforward. One great thing about them is that they allow you to care for your teeth as usual. Brush around them twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Flossing daily between each implant is also critical for cleaning hard-to-reach areas. Regular professional care, such as checkups and cleanings, can also support good implant health.
Implant dentures are typically used when all teeth on either the top or bottom arches need replacing. They offer more stability than traditional dentures because they are secured by implants. Implant-supported dentures also look and feel natural while still providing support for speaking and eating activities that can be difficult with traditional dentures. Plus, they don’t require any special cleaning procedures and are affordable.
Implant dentures have the same maintenance protocol as regular dentures. Using a soft bristle toothbrush to clean the inside of the denture is key to preserving the look and feel of the prosthesis. Similarly to traditional dental implants, visit your dentist regularly for checkups to ensure everything is in order!
