An implant-supported removable denture is a type of denture that is attached to dental implants that have been surgically placed in the jawbone. This type of denture is designed to be removable, allowing you to take it out for cleaning or other purposes.
The dental implants serve as a stable and secure foundation for the removable denture, providing a more comfortable and natural fit than traditional removable dentures that rely on suction or adhesives to stay in place. Implant-supported dentures can be either full or partial, depending on your needs.
The benefits of a removable prosthesis carrying artificial teeth on a custom fabricated or wrought metal frame supported by two osseointegrated implants to which it is attached and designed for self-removal include:
- Improved aesthetics: A removable prosthesis can improve the appearance of your smile by replacing missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and feel natural.
- Improved speech: Missing teeth can affect speech and pronunciation. With a removable prosthesis, you can improve your speech and communication skills.
- Improved chewing ability: A removable prosthesis can improve your chewing ability, making it easier to eat and enjoy a wider variety of foods.
- Improved oral health: A removable prosthesis can help prevent further oral health problems by filling gaps left by missing teeth, reducing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
- Increased comfort: A removable prosthesis is custom-designed to fit your mouth, making it comfortable to wear and reducing discomfort caused by missing teeth.
- Increased confidence: A removable prosthesis can improve your self-esteem by restoring your smile and helping you feel more confident in social situations.
- Easy maintenance: A removable prosthesis is easy to maintain and can be removed for cleaning, allowing you to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent oral health problems.
- Long-lasting: With proper care and maintenance, a removable prosthesis can last for many years, providing a cost-effective solution for missing teeth.
Overall, a removable prosthesis supported by two osseointegrated implants is a viable and effective option for replacing missing teeth, providing a range of benefits that can improve your oral health, comfort, and confidence.
