Over time, as you wear the dentures you had made for tooth replacement, you lose the boney structure that supports your soft tissues. Because your soft tissues make contact with your dentures, they too will start to recede with the bone, this will leave you in a continuous state of adjustment, discomfort and difficulty with everyday functions like speaking, chewing and smiling.
Implant supported cosmetic dentures provide support and fixation so you can comfortably speak, chew, and smile. They keep your upper and lower gums from receding which prevents facial shape changes like the shrunken look to maintain a flattering cosmetic dentistry effect.
How many dentures implants should you consider? Usually the minimum number is 4 implants under an upper or lower denture, but some patients have more placed to make the denture or bridge more stable.
It is important to have the best new dentures made before you start with your dental implant systems. This establishes the aesthetics; including shape, length, and color of your teeth and establishes proper vertical dimension. A youthful appearance achieved through correct facial dimensions, filling out the lips, cheeks and face. The new denture also serves as a template for the location and placement of implants.
Dental implants have been found to have very little discomfort, and certainly less pain than a tooth extraction. Many doctors offer different levels of sedation and/or anesthesia to make you comfortable. The post operative discomfort reported by most patients is very minimal and usually only requires an analgesic (ibuprophen) tablet.
Dental implants can last a lifetime for most people if they stay healthy and follow the denture care and maintenance requirements. While you will continue to maintain your denture the same way, you will also need to brush the implant abutments daily and visit your dentist annually for a cleaning and check up.
