There is Life After Dentures With Permanent Tooth Implants

How Dental Implants are Changing Dentures in Salt Lake City

If you wear dentures, you know they aren’t a great option. Implant-supported dentures from The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City may be a better choice for you.

As you may know, a dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A single post can support a single artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a set of dentures.

In most cases, implant-supported dentures are made for the patient’s lower jaw. That’s because lower dentures tend to be the most problematic; the uppers are more stable and don’t need the extra support that implants provide.

That said, implant-supported dentures can be made for the upper and lower.

Implant-supported dentures have a number of advantages over traditional dentures:

  • More stable. Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
  • Natural in appearance. They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
  • Built to last. Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
  • Prevent bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.

Implant-supported dentures have many benefits over other options. They are among at The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.
