Implant-Supported Dentures in Southfield, MI
Implant-supported dentures can be thought of as a hybrid between traditional adhesive secured dentures and permanent implanted dentures. While implants are used to provide the prosthetic support structure, the arch is not permanently attached to the supports. This allows the arch to be removed for cleaning and maintenance.
Better Comfort and Convenience
Since implant-supported dentures do not rest on the gum, they do not irritate soft tissues as traditional dentures do. They are less bulky than standard implants, and their reduced “footprint” allows for more comfortable chewing and smiling. Implant-supported dentures snap firmly into their support structure and never slip or loosen, giving patients the confidence they need to smile wide.
Preserving Bone and Gum Tissue
Most patients seeking implant dentures are doing so as a result of severe gum and bone loss due to periodontal disease. Implant-supported dentures are less surgically invasive than full permanent fixtures. They help to preserve precious bone and gum mass while providing the comfort and support you need.
