Dental Implant Dentures
Old Fashioned Dentures are horrible. The dentures are not stable and they rub on the gum tissue. Furthermore, they actually increase the tissue destruction of gum and bone tissue. Patients are constantly worrying about having their teeth fall out during eating, talking, laughing and eating. To try to help combat lose dentures patients use messy denture adhesives. In short, old fashioned dentures just plain suck!
Patients who are missing all of their teeth must look at dental implant dentures. Implants provide secure anchor points for the dentures to attach to. This eliminates the horrible problems of old fashioned dentures.
With the advancement of dental implants, Dr. Nugent can fasten dentures to stable dental implants. This eliminates the movement in the denture. The dentures are stable and secure. This allows for self-confidence as patients no longer worry about their denture falling out.

Dentures are custom-made in a lab from impressions made of the mouth and are used when all the teeth have been lost. A dental implant is a titanium screw that’s inserted into the jaw to create an artificial tooth root. Implant-retained dentures are often used for the lower jaw, where traditional dentures can be unstable. Combining dentures with dental implants produces a tooth replacement system with many advantages over standard dentures.
Stability and Simplicity: Combining removable dentures with implants entails two or more implants being installed to secure the dentures in place. The dentures are stable and secure.
Problems with Regular Dentures: Traditional dentures can lead to awkward problems with keeping them in place, particularly in the lower jaw. Denture adhesive paste does not necessarily address the problem of badly-fitting dentures. Combining dentures with dental implants provides an effective alternative to adhesives, holding the dentures firmly in place but enabling easy removal for cleaning. Implant overdentures “snap” onto the implants that have fused with the jaw bone, making them just as secure as natural teeth.
Besides stability, other benefits of implant-retained dentures include improved functionality and appearance, a permanent solution to tooth loss, clearer speech, and affordability. Regular dentures will eventually become loose due to shrinkage of the oral bone structure, as they lack roots and can’t direct the bite function to the jaw. Implant overdentures are better than regular dentures due to their stability, improved functionality and appearance, permanent solution, clearer speech, and affordability. Implants are unique in dentistry because they encourage bone growth and have a bite pressure as strong as that of natural teeth. They bond with the jaw in a process called osseointegration, which provides the stimulation that bones need to thrive.
Implant-supported dentures can restore your smile and self-esteem while giving you a bite function far more powerful than that of regular dentures. Dental implants have a success rate of up to 98 percent, and implant overdentures, when looked after properly, can last a lifetime. Overdentures should be taken out daily for cleaning and at night before going to sleep, and should also clean your gums and the implant attachments.
