Implant Supported Dentures

Do you have uncomfortable or loose-fitting dentures? Ask our Grand Rapids dentist if you're a candidate for implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are overdentures supported by traditional or mini dental implants. This stabilizes the appliance so it's more comfortable and functional.

Here's what else you need to know about implant-supported dentures.

How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?

Dr. Yun will place the mini dental implants in your jaw, anchoring it to the surrounding bone. He'll then place attachments to the underside of the denture that connect to the implants. When placed in the mouth, the denture snaps onto the implants, keeping it stable and secure.

What are the Benefits of Dentures Supported by Mini Implants?

Implant-supported dentures can help you feel more confident while you eat and talk. Not to mention, you'll be happy to start showing off your beautiful new smile.

Snap-in dentures are comfortable because they're secure and feel like natural teeth. They also don't irritate your gums like traditional dentures. For example, patients who wear dentures may develop mouth sores.

Implant-supported dentures look more natural than conventional dentures. This is because you need less plastic for retention. Wearing implant-supported dentures can also help prevent jaw shrinkage and bone loss.

Patients with conventional dentures may have difficulty speaking. Slurred speech and clicking noises are common problems. But implant-supported dentures can help you speak with a clearer, more natural voice.

Best of all, with implant-supported dentures, there is no need to use denture adhesives.
