Implant supported dentures
The time has come for you to leave conventional dentures behind. One Centre Dentistry would like to speak to you about the benefits of implant supported dentures. This permanent solution provides a level of comfort, convenience, and confidence you can not achieve with conventional, removable dentures.
Implant supported dentures withstand the forces of biting and chewing much better than conventional dentures. The dental implants support your new teeth. They do not rest or rub on your gums. Your new teeth don’t rock. You will experience improved confidence. Know that your teeth will remain in place while you speak, eat or laugh. For upper arches, you will experience a significantly improved ability to taste your food since the palate or roof of your mouth is not covered.
Dental implant supported dentures obviously require the placement of dental implants. A benefit over conventional dentures is that implants can help prevent shrinkage of the jaw bone. This is because chewing allows the implants to stimulate the jawbone, which in turn prevents bone resorption or shrinkage.
At One Centre Dentistry, full arch restoration involves replacing the teeth from either the upper arch, lower arch or both. Four to six dental implants will be placed into the jaw(s) and your new, non-removable teeth will then be secured to these implants.
